1. Review Process of Manuscripts
After submission, the Editorial Office will conduct preliminary review to the manuscripts. Manuscripts with insufficient originality, serious scientific or technical flaws, lack of scientific value or outside the journal’s scope will be rejected.
For manuscript that passed the preliminary review, the Editorial Office will conduct a double-blind peer review. The manuscript will be sent to two or more expert reviewers. The comments (acceptance, rejection or amendments) received from the reviewers will be sent to the corresponding author. Then the authors are requested to provide a point-by-point response to reviewers’ comments and resubmit a revised version of the manuscript. This process will be repeated until both the reviewers and editors are satisfied with the manuscript.
For manuscripts submitted by the editorial board members or editors of the journal, they must follow the same review and editing procedures adopted by the journal. All editorial board members and editors are not allowed to participate in the review, editing and acceptance decisions of the manuscripts written by themselves, their families or colleagues. Peer review will be conducted independently of relevant editorial board members, editors, and their research teams.
