That said, the reviewer does not know the identity of the author, otherwise the author does not know the identity of the reviewer. This paper was submitted to two reviewers anonymously.

Response to Invitation

Prospective reviewers consider the invitation based on their own expertise, conflict of interest, and availability. They then decide to accept or reject. In the invitation letter, the editor may ask the potential reviewer for suggestions from an alternative reviewer, when he or she refuses to review.

Review Done

The reviewer allocates time to read the paper several times. The first reading is used to form the initial impression of the work. If major problems are discovered at this stage, reviewers may feel comfortable rejecting the paper without further work. Otherwise, they will read the paper a few more times, taking notes to build a detailed point-by-point review. Reviews are then submitted to the journal, with a recommendation to accept, or reject it, or with a request for revision (usually marked as major or minor) before reconsideration.

Journal Evaluating Reviews

EIC and handling editors consider all returned reviews before making an overall decision. If the reviews differ markedly between the two reviewers, the handling editor may invite additional reviewers for additional opinions before making a decision.

Decision Communicated

The editor emails the decision to the author including relevant reviewer comments. Reviewer comments are sent anonymously to the corresponding author to take necessary action and response. At this point, reviewers are also sent an email or letter notifying them of the results of their review.

Final Step

If accepted , the paper is sent to production. If an article is rejected or sent back to the author for major or minor revisions, the handling editor will include constructive comments from the reviewer to help the author improve the article. Authors must make corrections and revise the paper in accordance with reviewers' comments and instructions.

After the revision is made, the author must send the revised paper back to the editor equipped with a cover page containing a checklist stating the points of correction and revisions that have been made.

If a paper is sent back for revision , reviewers should expect to receive the revised version, unless they have chosen not to participate further. However, if only minor changes are requested, this follow-up review can be performed by the handling editor.

If the editor is happy with the revised paper, it is considered accepted.     Accepted papers will be published online and are all freely available as downloadable pdf files.
