The Review Process

All submitted manuscripts are read by editors. To save time for authors and peer-reviewers only those papers that seem most likely to meet our editorial criteria are sent for formal review.

Manuscripts judged to be of potential interest to our readership are sent for formal review/s. The editors then make a decision based on the reviewer's advice, from among several possibilities:

  • Accept, with editorial revisions

  • Suggest the authors to revise their manuscripts to address specific concerns before a final decision is reached

  • Reject, but indicate to the authors that further work may justify resubmission.

  • Reject out rightly, based on grounds of specialist interest, lack of novelty, insufficient conceptual advance or major technical and/or interpretational problems.

  • We occasionally bring in additional reviewers to resolve differences or to make the process faster.

  • Our primary responsibilities are to our readers and in deciding how best to provide them, we must weigh the claims of each paper against the many others also under consideration.
