This journal uses a double-anonymous model of peer review. We rely on a global network of referees. After an initial decision by the editors whether or not to accept a submission for review, the author is notified.
Each of the selected articles is then evaluated by at least two referees. The refereeing process may take several months, usually between two and four. The anonymous reports will be communicated to the authors, and six to eight weeks are granted to carry out revisions if required.
To appeal an editorial decision, contact the Editor and specify the reason for your appeal. Your appeal will be reviewed by the Editor. The final decision regarding your appeal will rest with this Editor.
Appeals should be based on rational arguments and should refer to a specific manuscript in question. New submissions take priority over appeals, so it may take a substantial period of time for the journal to reach a conclusion about your appeal.
