Double-blind Peer Review
The journal follows a double-blind reviewing procedure. This means that the author will remain anonymous to the reviewers throughout peer review. It is the responsibility of the author to anonymize the manuscript and any associated materials. Author names, affiliations and any other potentially identifying information should be removed from the manuscript text and any accompanying files (such as figures of supplementary material); A separate Title Page should be submitted, containing title, author names, affiliations, and the contact information of authors. Any acknowledgements, disclosures, or funding information should also be included on this page. Authors should avoid citing their own work in a way that could reveal their identity.
Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published before; that it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities – tacitly or explicitly – at the institute where the work has been carried out. The publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.
Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.
Please ensure you provide all relevant editable source files at every submission and revision. Failing to submit a complete set of editable source files will result in your article not being considered for review. For your manuscript text please always submit in common word processing formats such as .docx or .doc.
Length of Manuscripts
The usual length of empirical and theoretical, review articles is 5000-8000 words (including references, tables and figures); book reviews in 2000-3000 words; and case reports in 3000-5000 words. However, quality original manuscripts will also be considered that fall outside these ranges.
