Peer Review Policy
This journal adopts a double–blind peer review policy that involves sending the paper to two external or internal reviewers. Authors may suggest potential reviewers if they wish. However, the decision to consider these reviewers is at the editor’s discretion. Authors who wish to suggest peer reviewers can do so in the cover letter and should provide the institutional email addresses where possible or any information which helps the Section Editor to verify and identify the potential introduced reviewers (for example an ORCID or Scopus ID). Authors may also request the exclusion of individuals as peer reviewers; however, they should explain the reasons in their submitted cover letter. Authors should not exclude too many individuals as this may hinder the peer review process. Please note that the section editor may choose to invite any of the excluded peer reviewers. Intentionally falsifying information, for example , suggesting reviewers with a false name or an email address, will result in the rejection of the manuscript and in further investigation that is in line with our misconduct policy.
