The review process aims to make authors meet the standards of their discipline, and of science in general. We use a double-blind system for peer-reviewing; both reviewers and authors’ identities remain anonymous to each other.
The articles are primarily evaluated by our statisticians and internal screeners who check the articles for any methodological flaws, format, and their compliance with the journal’s instructions. Then a submission code will be allocated, and all the future contacts should be based on this code. Through a double-blind review, the articles will be reviewed by at least two external (peer) reviewers. Their comments will be passed to the authors and their responses to the comments along with the reviewers’ comments will then be evaluated by the Editor-in-Chief, the Deputy Editor, and a final reviewer who can be a member of the Editorial Board. The final review process will be discussed in regular editorial board sessions and based on the comments, and the journal’s scope, the Editors-in-Chief will decide which articles should be published.
