Editorial & Peer Review Process: All manuscripts are anonymously reviewed by the editors, members of the editorial board, advisory board or qualified reviewers. When a manuscript is submitted to the journal, it is given a number and assigned to two reviewers. The reviewers operate under strict guidelines and are expected complete their reviews quickly. Within 2 to 4 weeks after submission, the corresponding author will be notified of the editor’s decision to accept without change, recommended for modification, further review, or reject. When modifications are requested, the corresponding author must either submit the modified version or withdraw the manuscript. Manuscripts that have been rejected, or withdrawn after being returned for modification, may be resubmitted if the major criticisms have been addressed. The cover letter must state that the manuscript is a resubmit, and the former manuscript number should be provided in the appropriate field on the submission form.

How long does the review process take?
Typically the manuscript will be reviewed within 20 days. Should the reviewers' reports contradict one another or a report is unduly delayed, a further expert opinion will be sought. Reviewers and Senior Editors may request more than one revision of a manuscript, and alternative reviewers may also be invited to review the manuscript at any time.

The final decision and time to publication
The Senior Editor is responsible for the decision to reject or recommend the manuscript for publication. This decision will be sent to the author along with any recommendations made by the referees. Please note we may forward accepted papers for legal review if appropriate. After acceptance it takes another 20 days to get the final corrected article online.
