Those failing to meet current standards are rejected without further review. Those meetings these initial standards are sent to expert referees for peer review. Referees identities are not disclosed to the author. Author identities are also not disclosed to the referees. Referee comments are reviewed by an Associate Editor and he/she, often after allowing the author to make changes in response to the referee’s comments, advises the Scientific Editor to either accept or reject the manuscript. The Scientific Editor informs the author of the final decision. The review process ordinarily is completed within 3 months. If the process is delayed beyond that point, authors will be notified.
