Review process

This journal uses a single-anonymised model of peer review. The author does not know the identity of the reviewers, but the reviewers know the identity of the author. 

All submissions are initially assessed for suitability by the Editorial Office. After the initial assessment, submissions are single-blind peer-reviewed by a minimum of two independent, anonymous expert referees and recommendations made to the assigned Associate Editor, who then makes a recommendation to the Editor-in-Chief for a decision.

All research articles in the journal are peer-reviewed. No person is permitted to take any role in the peer-review of a paper in which they have an interest, defined as follows: fees or grants from, employment by, consultancy for, shared ownership in, or any close relationship with, an organisation whose interests, financial or otherwise, may be affected by the publication of the paper.
