Peer Review

Each eligible manuscript is then sent for review to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers in the relevant field. Reviewers are carefully selected based on their expertise, experience, and prior contributions to the field. In cases where conflicting opinions arise, additional reviewers may be assigned to provide a comprehensive evaluation.

Authors will receive a decision, which may include acceptance, minor or major revisions, or rejection. If revisions are requested, authors are expected to address all reviewers' comments thoroughly and resubmit the revised manuscript within the stipulated timeframe.

Editorial Decision

The final decision regarding the publication of a manuscript rests with the Editor-in-Chief or the Editorial Board members. The editorial team carefully considers the reviewers' assessments, the originality of the work, the relevance to the journal's scope, and the adherence to ethical standards before making a final decision.
