Review process

Upon receipt of any manuscript, the Editor will make an initial determination as to compliance with editorial policy and submission requirements. Every manuscript submitted to the Journal shall undergo double blind review. Three (3) reviewers shall be allocated to the paper and responses from two (2) shall be used to make a decision to accept the paper or not.

Furthermore, authors will receive a notification of the Editor's decision with any necessary
comments from reviewers. Where the manuscript is accepted subject to amendments suggested by reviewers, authors are to turn such revisions around within reasonable time of not more than 2 months. Authors are to pay particular attention to typographical errors, print errors, grammatical aberrations, completeness of references etc. as such lapses tend to delay the review process.

Accepted papers will be published in order of receipt of final versions. Final versions must be submitted in both MS Word and PDF format. Authors whose papers are accepted will receive one (1) complimentary copy of the journal issue in which their paper appears.

Conflict of Interest

Authors must indicate whether there is a conflict of interest when lodging their submission via the email address. If there is a conflict of interest, the author (s) must clearly identify the conflict in a covering letter that declares any grants or other sources of funding that support reported research, as well as any relevant industrial links or affiliations that the author may have. Any potential conflicts of interest will be held in confidence while the paper is under review and will not influence the editorial decision but, if the article is accepted for publication, the Editor will consider whether such information needs to be communicated to the reader.

Article in Press

The Journal does not permit un-authorised pre-publication of any material accepted and due for publication. “Articles in press” will be posted on the Journal’s website by the editors.
