Peer Review Process

All manuscripts are reviewed by double-anonymous peer reviewers (double-blind reviewers). The Editor in Chief or board member reviews each submitted paper, and if it meets submission criteria, it is sent to two referees for double-anonymous peer review. Editor in Chief selects the peer reviewers according to the scientific paper topic and the reviewer's expertise. The author and the reviewers have no relationship, such as an employment relationship, the same working group, a supervisor and a student relationship, or the same family. Based on the reviewers' recommendations, the Editor in Chief then decides whether the paper should be accepted as is, revised, or rejected. This is done within 12 weeks on average. Then, the Editorial Board re-reviews the revised manuscripts accepted until they are published.
