Peer Review Process

All articles are peer-reviewed by independent experts and overseen by the Editor. Our ethos is to be inclusive: We publish articles based on quality and relevance of content, not on the reputation of the authors. We encourage authors to improve the content and language of their manuscripts, based on the advice of reviewers and editors. In return we expect all submitted articles to be in the format specified in the Instructions for Authors.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
