Peer review information

Review process

This journal uses a double-anonymous peer review model. This means that the identities of both the peer reviewers and the authors are kept hidden.


To appeal an editorial decision, contact the journal editorial office and specify the reason for your appeal. Appeals should refer to a specific manuscript in question, and should be based upon rational argument. Your appeal will be reviewed by the Editor in Chief and other members of the editorial board, and the final decision regarding your appeal will rest with the Editor in Chief. If you have submitted an appeal and are awaiting an outcome, you should not submit your manuscript for publication elsewhere until you have notified this journal that you wish to withdraw your manuscript from consideration.
