The EPPM-Journal is a refereed journal. All submitted papers are
subject to double-blind
review, i.e. authors and reviewers are
unaware of the identity each other. All articles undergo rigorous peer review, based on
initial editor screening and anonymous refereeing. Two or more
reviewers will review submitted articles. The Journal endeavors to
maintain a rapid review process. The average review time is
weeks. Authors may be requested for revisions until the paper
satisfies the quality of the Journal.
Rapid publication is a policy of the EPPM-Journal. The Journal
respects all submissions and knows that authors spend great efforts
to formulate their research into a paper. A receipt is rendered once
an Editor handles the submission/revision. Authors can track paper
status when they login to the online submission system. Accepted
papers are immediately annotated at the Journal website once they
have been accepted. Decisions are made based on reviewer
suggestions. Before publication, papers will be sent to authors for
proofing. Editorial process of the EPPM-Journal is shown below.
