Peer Review Process

Authors' names are not revealed to reviewers and vice versa. This type of evaluation prevents both authors and reviewers from bias. Once the referees accept to take part as reviewers, they perform a thorough examination of the manuscript and send either a veredict or suggestions for amendments or a strong recomendation of whether the article should be published. The final selection of the reviewers is responsibility of the Area Editor.
 

Frequency of Publication
