Editorial Process.

Articles submitted to REE&PQJ are subject to strict peer-reviewing. The review process is single blind peer-review (the reviewers know the authors' identities, but the authors do not know the reviewers' identities).

Once a manuscript is submitted, the submission is received by the in-house Managing Editor, who will subsequently coordinate the whole editorial process for the manuscript: peer-review, decision making, possible author revisions, manuscript acceptance, copyediting, English editing, proofreading and final publication. An in-house Assistant Editor will be assigned to the submitted article and will send review invitations.

At least two reports per manuscript are collected for each manuscript-three if the first two differ substantially. Reviewers must hold a PhD, cannot have published with the authors in the past three years, and must have recent publications in the field of the submitted manuscript.

Special lssues have different peer review procedures involving, for example, Guest Editors and/or Advisory Editors. Authors contributing to these projects may receive full details of the peer review process on request from the editorial office.

The Regulations for to publish one article in the REE&PQJ have several steps.

The Editor-in-Chief, Guest Editor, or a suitable Editorial Board member can make the final acceptance or rejection decision for a manuscript, usually after the author's revisions. We typically allow no more than two rounds of major revisions.

After the acceptance of an article for publication, the in-house editorial staff organize the production of the paper, which entails copyediting, English editing and final production in preparation for publication on the journal website. The journal is structured in yearly volumes and either monthly or quarterly issues. Nevertheless, articles are published online immediately after their acceptance and production.

How the reviewers are selected

Reviewers are matched to the paper according to their expertise, and our referee database is constantly being updated. We welcome suggestions fer reviewers from authors, though these recommendations may or may not be used.
