How do we process your article?
All articles are initially evaluated by the Editors for suitability of topic and format. Articles that meet the basic requirements are assigned to a minimum of two peer reviewers, chosen on the basis of their expertise in the subject. Peer reviewing is blind, meaning that the author's identity is not revealed to the reviewers. Reviewers evaluate the article's contribution and make specific suggestions for revisions. When making a recommendation to publish or reject an article, reviewers take into account the importance of the topic, the quality of scholarship, and the clarity of writing. The assigned editors makes the final decision according to the reviewers comments. All manuscripts go through at least one round of revision before they are finally accepted. Following acceptance, articles are edited for clarity and adherence to journal style as shown in the author guideline.
