Each paper is double-blind reviewed by at least two reviewers, and ideally is double-blind reviewed by three or more reviewers. After the paper has been reviewed, the Journal Editor in chief examines the paper and the reviewers’ comments. Then the chief makes the final decision on each paper. We encourage our reviewers to give a detailed account of their decision.
Once reviewed, every author will be able to view the reviewers’ comments as a single document. The author will learn the paper’s average scores on originality, contribution to the scientific community, use of references, presentation of ideas, language level, as well as any other comments that the reviewers have provided.
Acceptance is primarily based on the relevance, originality, technical soundness, presentation, references, and scientific merit of the paper. All papers must be well written.
