Submitted manuscripts are first read by the Chief Editor.

The reviewers will make their decision regarding the manuscript based on the following possibilities:

Accept, with or without editorial revisions

Revision to manuscript before a final decision is reached

Resubmit for another round of review

Reject, and resubmit elsewhere

Decline submission

In the event of conflicting decisions from the reviewers, the editors will make a decision to resent the manuscript to a third reviewer or the manuscript will be returned to original reviewers for further advice, particularly in cases where there are disagreement among the reviewers. The editors will try to evaluate the strength of the arguments raised by each reviewer and will consider other information not available to the reviewers. Foremost, the responsibility of the editors are to the readers of the journal and how best to serve the scientific community at large.

The review process will normally take about 4 weeks.
