Peer Review Process

The peer review process aims to ensure that high-quality manuscripts relevant to the topics of the journal are published. All manuscripts submitted to the journal are peer-reviewed following the procedure outlined below.

Administrative submission evaluation
All submissions are checked by the Journal Administrator to ensure that they conform to the paper requirements outlined on the author information page of the journal website. Issues such as paper length, the standard of the English language, format of diagrams, referencing style, plagiarism, etc. are considered. If the submission does not meet all or some of these criteria the submission will be declined, and the authors asked to resubmit after addressing the issues.

Initial Editorial evaluation
One of the Chief Editors evaluates all submitted manuscripts. A manuscript can be rejected at this stage due to not being insufficiently original, having serious scientific flaws, having poor language, or being outside the aims and scope of the journal. Manuscripts that meet the minimum criteria are either managed by the Chief Editor or passed to an Associate Editor to manage the peer review process.
