Peer Review

The articles published in our journal go through a rigorous peer review process. After a first examination by the editorial staff, each article is anonymised and assessed by at least two reviewers. The assessment thus takes place under bilateral protection of anonymity (doube-blind peer-review).

The editorial office will check for potential conflicts of interests before contacting reviewers. In cases where such conflicts occur despite these efforts, reviewers are kindly asked to inform the editor, especially if they have previously co-authored publications, have worked directly together or have a personal relationship (e.g. family, close friend) with the author. 

The list of reviewers is published in the first issue of the year following the publication of the article.
