.The review process

Peer-reviewer Selection

Reviewer selection is essential for publication process based on many factors, including expertise, reputation, specific recommendations and our experience of reviewing the publication process.  Furthermore, we ensure the potential reviewers before sending them manuscripts to review.

Writing the review

The main purpose of the review is to provide the editors with the information needed to determine the accepted manuscripts. The review should also advise the authors as to how they can rewrite for better paper to comply with editorial requirements. As far as possible, a negative review should explain to the authors the weaknesses of their manuscript, so that rejected authors can understand the basis for the decision and see in broad terms what needs to be done to improve the manuscript. This is secondary to the other functions, however, and referees should not feel obliged to provide detailed, constructive advice to the authors of papers that do not meet the criteria for the journal (as outlined in the letter from the editor when asking for the review).
