The journal initially runs double-blind review process (that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process). All contributions will be evaluated by the editor for suitability for the journal from the originality, written language and the essential scientific content. After passing this stage, three copies of the research deprived of name of the researcher (or researchers) are sent to three expert reviewers chosen by the editorial board. The selection of reviewer is depending mainly on the specific area of the research. A period up to one month is given to the reviewer. In case the editor receives no response, the reviewer will be replaced. The acceptance of any research for publication requires at least two final acceptance out of three decisions. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles. The Editor's decision is final.
When the research is accepted by the editor, the corresponding author will be provided with the amendments, corrections and annotations asked by the reviewers. The corresponding author should utilize this proof only for checking the typesetting, editing, completeness and correctness of the text, tables and figures. Significant changes to the article as accepted for publication will only be considered at this stage with permission from the Editor.
