Peer Review Policy
Research and review articles received from open call and individual invitation are peer-reviewed, double-anonymised, before publication. The Managing Editor sends original research and review articles to Section Editors for initial review of the work’s relevance to the journal. They submit draft decisions to the Editor-in-Chief for final decision about further review or acceptance. The initial review process will be short, and not last longer than six weeks. Perspectives, including case studies and interviews, are reviewed by Section Editors and cleared with the Editor-in-Chief. These are not subject to double-anonymised peer review.
Open Access Policy
This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
