Information for authors

Interested in submitting to this journal? We recommend that you review the About the Journal page, our Editorial policies, as well as the Author Guidelines. Authors are required to register with the journal before submitting. If you are already registered, you can simply log in and begin the five-step process."

Review process

Upon receiving a manuscript, an editor conducts an initial quality check to assess its alignment with the journal's scope, the quality of the content, and adherence to editorial policies and ethical standards. Submissions may be returned to authors for revisions/clarifications or rejected at this stage.

Once a submission is accepted, the editor proceeds to the reviewing phase which consists in a single blind peer review by two independent experts.

The entire reviewing process takes an average of 20 days.

Editors and reviewers with conflicts of interest related to a submitted manuscript are recused from both the reviewing process and editorial decision-making. In cases where the conflict involves the Editor-in-Chief, he will also be excluded from the review process. In such instances, another editor will temporarily assume the role of Editor-in-Chief to maintain the integrity of the review process.
