Once a manuscript is submitted for publication, it is checked by the journal’s editorial office to ensure the files are complete, and the suitability of the manuscript in terms of scope, quality, and plagiarism is checked before it is assigned to an Associate Editor. The Associate Editor then performs a preliminary assessment. If the editor deems it suitable for the journal, the manuscript will be sent to at least two suitably qualified experts to provide a peer review report. Based on reports submitted by two reviewers, one of the following recommendations will be made: Reject, Major revision, or Minor Revision. The authors are notified accordingly. The Editor-in-Chief (EIC) will critically review these peer-review reports to make the final decision for all manuscripts. The EIC may request the advice and guidance of Associate Editors when required.
Publication schedule: Expect on average 17 weeks from submission to publication
