Peer Review Process

The articles will then be sent to peer reviewers and will undergo further selection through the Open Review Process. After this, the articles will be returned to the authors for revision. These processes typically take a maximum of one month but can be extended if a more in-depth review is necessary. For each manuscript, peer reviewers will evaluate both substantial and technical aspects.
