After submission

All articles are sent for external review by two reviewers who have expertise relevant to the article content. The editor/sub-editor collates the feedback from the reviewers and communicates with the author regarding the recommended changes.

It is usual to receive feedback when submitting any article for publication and the role of the editor/sub-editor is to work with authors to finalise articles for publication. Our goal is to encourage new authors with this editorial process.
