Guidelines for Reviewers

Papers published in the journal should meet certain criteria relating to audience, technical content, and presentation.

The review form is designated to help reviewers evaluate manuscripts. If revisions are recommended, reviewers should be as specific as possible in describing changes and should indicate which changes are recommended and which are obligatory. If a paper is considered un-publishable, reviewers should reject it completely.

The reviewers are asked to look at the manuscript soon after receiving it and return the review as soon as possible (but no later than 4 weeks after receiving the paper). If they cannot meet this term, other reviewers will be sought.

Reviewer confidentiality. The editors of the journal never disclose the names of reviewers to the authors except with the permission of the reviewer. Reviewers should regard a submitted manuscript as a confidential document. They should not use or disclose unpublished information in a manuscript except with the permission of the author(s). Since there is no direct communication between the author(s) and the reviewer(s) concerning a manuscript, that permission can only be obtained via the Editor-in-chief or Executive editor.

The review should be returned to the Editorial office:
