Peer Review Process

The editor in chief makes an initial assessment if a submission meets the criteria of originality, relevance and substance. If so, the anonymised submission is sent to two anonymous reviewers. Their reviews are expected within two months, and thus a decision on acceptance and if so, degree of revision needed, is normally made within 4 months from submission.
