Description of the process
- For a start the author can send a synopsis (1/2-1 page of resume of the content of the article) to the Journal Manager. This is not mandatory however, it is just an option. If a synopsis is submitted the Editorial Board will tell the author if it considers that it could become an article fit to be published in the journal.
- The author submits an article, in accordance with the guidelines in this guide
- The author receives a receipt of the submission and one or two of the members of the Board read the article, and determines if it is relevant and if it complies with the criteria
- The author may have the article returned with a refusal, or with an invitation to make some corrections
- Or the article is sent directly to two external anonymous referees. One member of the Editorial Board is assigned as Editor to the article
- The author receives the review from the referees together with suggestions and comments from the Editor. This will normally take 1-2 months
- The author revises the article unless it has been immediately accepted. Normally the revision will take 1 or 2 months
- The Board receives the revised article and decides if it can be published. If necessary the author will be asked to do some further revisions, e.g.. regarding deficiencies in the reference list, in references in the text or in tables etc.
