1. Each article is sent to two independent expert referees, chosen based on their expertise on the subject of the article. They receive an anonymous copy of the manuscript and are asked to give their evaluations within 14 days. The referees’ recommendations will affect the Board’s decision on acceptance or refusal, or its request to revise and resubmit. The list of independent reviewers is available here.

2. The final decision on acceptance or refusal for publication rests with the Editorial Board.
