All manuscripts are considered confidential. They are peerreviewed by at least 3 anonymous reviewers selected by the Editor. We neither guarantee the acceptance without reviewing process nor very short peer review times for unsolicited manuscripts. Commissioned manuscripts will also be reviewed before publication. We adopt double-blind peer review in which case, not only authors but also reviewers do not know each other. The average time interval for an initial review process that involves both editorial and peer reviews is approximately 1 month; occasionally, there are unavoidable delays, usually because a manuscript needs multiple reviews or several revisions.

The corresponding author will be notified as soon as possible of the Editor’s decision to accept, reject, or ask for revisions. When manuscripts are returned for a revision, a cover letter from the Editor provides directions that should be followed carefully. When submitting the revised manuscript, authors should include a Response Letter, which describes how the manuscript has been revised. A pointby-point response to the Editor should be included with the revised manuscript. Authors who plan to resubmit but cannot meet this deadline should contact the Editorial Office. Manuscripts held for revision will be retained for a maximum of 90 days. The revised manuscript and the author’s comments will be reviewed again. If a manuscript is completely acceptable, according to the criteria set forth in these instructions, it is scheduled for publication in the next available issue.
