Editorial review and processing

Peer Review. All submitted manuscripts are screened by the Scientific Editor for importance, substance, appropriateness for the journal, general scientific quality and amount of new information provided. Those failing to meet the current standards are rejected without further review. Those meetings these initial standards are sent to at least two expert referees for peer review. No referee identity is disclosed to the corresponding author and no author identity is disclosed to any referee (double-blind). Referee comments are reviewed by an Associate Editor, often after allowing the author to make changes in response to any comments from referees. The Associate Editor then advises the Scientific Editor to either accept or reject the manuscript. The Scientific Editor informs the corresponding author of the final decision. The review process ordinarily is completed within 4-7 months. If the process is delayed beyond that point, the corresponding author will be notified.

Rejected manuscripts. Rejected manuscripts including original illustrations and photographs will be returned to authors.

Accepted manuscripts. The corresponding author will be asked to review a copy-edited page proof. The corresponding author (on behalf of all authors) is responsible for all statements appearing in the galley proofs. The corresponding author will be informed of the estimated date of publication.
