Peer Review Policy

Peer Review Policy:

We operate a double–blind peer review policy involving 2 or more external reviewers.

Authors may suggest potential reviewers for their manuscript, however, we have the right  to consider these reviewers  or not.

Authors  who wish to suggest peer reviewers can do so in the cover letter and should provide institutional email addresses, affiliation, and brief information regarding the reviewer field of specialty and interset.

Authors may request the exclusion of individuals as peer reviewers, but they should explain the reasons in their cover letter on submission. Please note that the editor may choose to invite excluded peer reviewers.

Intentionally falsifying information, for example, suggesting reviewers with a false name or email address, will result in rejection of the manuscript and may lead to further investigation in line with our misconduct policy.
