Peer Review Process

Manuscripts submitted to the Journal will be initially assessed for suitability of subject matter and overall technical quality by the Editor-in-Chief. Manuscripts inappropriate for the Journal or in obvious noncompliance with guidelines for manuscript preparation may be returned to the author without further review. If the paper appears appropriate for the Journal, the manuscript will then be sent to an Associate Editor who will oversee technical review by two or three experts. Reviewers are selected for their objectivity and competence in the subject area of the paper. Reviewers may remain anonymous or not, at their discretion.

Authors can influence the reviewers' judgments by submitting concise, clearly written, and well-organized papers that follow the Journal's style and format. To that end, we strongly encourage authors to have their papers thoroughly reviewed by colleagues before submitting to the Journal. Authors whose native language is not English should seek assistance with syntax, grammar, and style from someone proficient in written English when they submitted the papers in English or when they wrote the abstracts in English. This will help ensure that the merit of the paper is judged on scientific and technical grounds rather than clarity of writing. Be aware that poorly written manuscripts may be rejected on that basis alone.

Editorial decisions are usually one of three types: 1) accept with minor corrections; 2) accept with major corrections; and 3) reject. A small number of papers are accepted for publication pending minor revision to correct problems with grammar or presentation. On the other hand, papers that do not meet the scientific or editorial standards of the Journal will be returned to the author without the opportunity for resubmission. Most papers submitted to the Journal are returned to the author for substantial modification. The author will be asked to address the comments and suggestions of the reviewers by revising the paper or by offering a rebuttal to the reviewers' comments. Depending on the extent of the required modification, the revised paper may be subject to additional review by the Associate Editor and the reviewers of the original paper.
