Approximately 18% of the manuscripts are rejected without review based on formal criteria as they do not comply with the submission guidelines. Each manuscript is assigned to at least two peer reviewers. The journal follows a single-blind reviewing procedure. The period from submission to the first decision is usually at most seven weeks. The approximate rejection rate is 17%. The final decision on the acceptance of a manuscript for publication is made by the meeting of Editorial Board members. The responsible editor and the Deputy Editor-in-Chief need to give their recommendations before the decision.
If Editors, including the Editor-in-Chief, publish in the journal, they do not participate in the decision-making process for manuscripts where they are listed as co-authors.
Special issues published in the journal follow the same procedures as all other issues. If not stated otherwise, special issues are prepared by the members of the editorial board without guest editors.
