Then, the authors are appraised of the comments received from the refereed reviewers so that the former incorporate the latter’s comments into their papers. So improved papers are submitted to the editorial team following which the Chief Editor reverts them to the reviewers if the improved submission does not still meet the scientific quality meant for a research journal. The final, improved paper is finally edited by the Editor-in-Chief for publication.
