A single-blind review is applied, where authors' identities are known to reviewers. Peer review comments are confidential and will only be disclosed with the express agreement of the reviewer.  In the case of regular submissions, in-house assistant editors will invite experts, including recommendations by an academic editor. Potential reviewers suggested by the authors may also be considered.

  • The reviewers can provide some free text observations and some free text which were given to the authors. However, the private observations are only available to the technical chairs. Conflicting reviews may require the assignment of a new reviewer. In the end, the technical chairs make the final decision.
