revision and re-submission is requested.

If the manuscript is complete and meets all the format requirements, it is then sent to the area editor. The area editor evaluates the scientific quality of the manuscript. If the manuscript is judged suitable for publication, it is then sent to three independent reviewers, whom are either proposed by the author or selected from the reviewer pool, for double-blind peer review process by associate editors.

Each reviewer evaluates the manuscript and submits a reviewer evaluation form including various comments. Based on the reviewer comments and the area editor's suggestion, the editor makes one of the following decisions on the manuscript: accept, request for revision or reject.
