Peer Review Policy
Our peer review policy has three main features:
  1. This policy is designed to evaluate the validity and quality of articles prior to publication. This supports the maintenance of the integrity of the knowledge domain to which the article belongs and filters out irrelevant and poor-quality manuscripts.
  2. Our peer reviewers ensure that data is clearly presented and findings and conclusions are adequately supported by data.
  3. We follow the double-blind review process, which means neither authors nor reviewers are aware of each other’s identities or affiliations throughout the review process. Authors are instructed to prepare their manuscripts in such a way that their identities are not revealed. This anonymity prevents bias from either side.
