When an author submits a paper, the Editorial Office first tests it for adherence to our submission guidelines. Afterwards, the Editorial Office chooses two reviewers out of the Editorial Board according to the in the paper adressed topics. A third reviewer will be selected in case of extremely differing opinions. The author gets an anonymous version of his review and must, if necessary, adapt his contribution. This one he has to submit again within an appropriate period of time and by considering our submission guidelines for publishing. Finally, the author receives a proof print which he has to send to the Editorial Office with an added comment that the paper is ready to publish.

An additional review process is done online by the users in forms of evaluations and comments on the published papers.
