The Editorial Board first evaluates all manuscripts. Those rejected at this stage are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, have poor grammar or English language, or are outside the aims and scope of the journal. Those that meet the minimum criteria are passed on to two subject matter experts for review. Referees advise the editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the paper. Should authors be requested by the editor to revise the text, the revised version should be submitted within 3 weeks. After this period, the paper may be rejected.

The journal operates a single blind review process.
