Editorial Process 

Peer review

Submissions are assessed by the Editorial Board and are subject to external peer review using the single blind method whereby the authors are blinded to the identity of the reviewers and editors.  

Due to the high volume of submissions received, the Co-Editors-in-Chief and Associate Editors operate a rapid triage system and only the top 65% of papers undergo full external peer review.  This workflow is in place to allow authors to submit to a more appropriate journal with minimal delay.

On average the journal returns a decision on a peer-reviewed paper in 28 days. 

Appeals

Authors who feel they have grounds to appeal a rejection decision should send a rebuttal letter to the editorial office, detailing the reasons for the appeal.  Rebuttals will be considered by the handling Co-Editor-in-Chief, often in consultation with the Associate Editor who handled the paper.  Decisions on appeals are final.
