  2. After a short acknowledgement of receipt, authors will usually receive a reply within two weeks as to whether the article they have submitted is thematically related to the journal and will be included in the double-blind peer-review process.
  3. The reviewers read the submitted article and communicate any necessary improvements or suggestions for improvement. This third step usually takes a maximum of six weeks.
