Erfolgreich durch internationale Zusammenarbeit
research articles in our journal have undergone rigorous peer review,
based on initial editor screening and transparent or anonymized
handling by two reviewers.
cases where editors have doubts after the process of review, they
double-check the evaluation with some members of the Editorial board,
according to their field of specialization, in order to reach an
agreement and a decision on the manuscript.
our reviewers sign the agreement on peer review ethics including
confidentiality, friendliness and above all honesty in regard of own
qualifications and conflicts of interests.
