Peer Review (3-4 Weeks)

The journal employs a double-blind peer review system, which is the most important aspect of the publication process of an article. Each manuscript passing initial screening will be subjected to rigorous and anonymous peer-review by a minimum of 2 peer reviewers. Referees who review a manuscript remain unknown to the authors. The journal’s independent status ensures a submission acceptance rate based on merit and not favor, bias, or personal preference. All the reviewers send the editorial assistant a detailed report with their comments and recommendations on the manuscript. Authors receive reviewers’ comments and recommendations from the editorial assistant and they never enter in contact with reviewers. Usually, reviewers will complete their reviews within 3-4 weeks. The reviewers make a recommendation to accept, revise, or reject a manuscript based on the scientific merit and technical quality of the studies reported.

Revision after Peer Review (15 working days)

Authors are required to revise the manuscripts according to the comments of the reviewers and answer all questions raised by reviewers in a cover letter. Any revisions should be marked out. The revised manuscripts and cover letters are required to be sent to us via email in MS Word or LaTex format within 15 working days. If you are submitting in LaTeX, please convert the files to PDF beforehand (you will also need to send your LaTeX source files together with the PDF). Upon resubmission, the academic editor may choose to return the manuscript to the reviewers for additional review, or may render a decision of accepting, recommending modification or rejecting based on his/her personal expertise.

Acceptance Letters (Within 7 working days)

After the revision process, qualified manuscripts will be accepted for publication. The Acceptance Letters will be sent to the corresponding authors within 7 working days.
