Peer review and editorial policy

The journal follows the Springer Nature Peer Review Policy, Process and Guidance, Springer Nature Journal Editors' Code of Conduct, and COPE's Ethical Guidelines for Peer-reviewers.

Each manuscript is assigned to at least one peer reviewer. The journal follows a double-blind reviewing procedure. The period from submission to the first decision is up to 52 days. The approximate rejection rate is 80%. The final decision on the acceptance of a manuscript for publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief.

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.
