Peer Review Process

If considered suitable by the Editor, the manuscript will be refereed by two referees. The review process is "blind": authors and referees do not know the identities of the others. In the event of disagreement amongst referees, the manuscript will be sent to a third referee. As a result of the peer review process, the Editor may recommend revisions. Authors will be notified that a submission is being sent out for review within two weeks of receipt. Normally, the first round of review will take one month. In exceptional cases, this process may take longer if there are difficulties identifying potential reviewers. Reviewers are recruited by the editorial board based upon their familiarity with the topic at hand.

 

Publication Frequency

The Journal publishes twice annually.
