Plagiarism Policy

A comprehensive manuscripts screening aimed to eliminate plagiarism and provide a high standard and quality peer-review process is performed during the editorial process.

Peer review

The review process is managed by the manuscript management software (Open Journal Systems). In a single-blind process, at least two reviewers are selected according to their expertise in the field of the manuscript. In case of disagreement between the two reviewers, we invite a third reviewer to help with the decision-making. The final decision resides with the Associate Editors and Editor-in-Chief. We strive to get to the first decision in three weeks after submission and the types of decisions possible are: accept without revision, minor revision, major revision, or reject.
