Peer Review Process

1.         Reviewers will be responsible for returning their reviews within 21 days after receiving the paper. (This might seem extreme, but keep reading).

2.         Before a reviewer is sent an article, he will be asked whether or not he has the time to review the article. Reviewers will be encouraged to accept the paper only if they can realistically guarantee a 3 week response. If an editorial member declines to review an article, this will NOT be considered anti-social, even if the reviewer has declined on several previous occasions. (I am assuming that anyone who joins the editorial board will do so in good faith.)
