About the Journal

Articles that meet the editorial requirements for style and scope are subjected to a formal peer review. The Editorial Office strives to complete the peer review process and render decisions within 8 to 10 weeks of submission. Articles that do not fall within the journal’s scope or do not meet the standards to merit an external peer review will be evaluated internally by the editors, usually within 4 weeks.
Accepted articles are published online on the Elsevier site within 3-5 days of receipt and are assigned a DOI number, making them fully citable. These preliminary versions are replaced with the PDF after the article has undergone the production process (ie, copyediting, layout, author proofs, corrections, etc). Even though individual articles are published online on a rolling basis throughout the year, “collected articles” are published in one of 6 volumes released in odd numbered months (ie, January, March, May, July, September, and November).
