Peer Review Process

If the manuscript complies with preparation guidelines provided, it goes through a reviewing process; First by the Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board members who screen for plagiarism by using the online software. The manuscript is then sent to at least two blinded-peer-reviewers. Reviewers may accept the article as it is, request minor or major revisions, or reject. In case there are disagreements between reviewers, the manuscript may be sent to another reviewer. The article can be published only after the required revisions are fulfilled by the author. However, taking into consideration the recommendations of the reviewers, the final decision belongs to the Editor-in-Chief. Note that a double-blind peer review system is adopted and reviewers are unaware of the identity of the author.
