After we reach an edited version of the article, it will be sent to the expert referees according to their fields. A double-blind refereeing system is applied in our journal and the referees do not know which article they arbitrate until the arbitration process ends and the article is published. If the article is rejected, referees can’t learn who the author was. Likewise, authors can’t learn which referee arbitrated their articles. As long as the referees’ comments start to be reached, we start to transmit the reports to the authors.

The corrected version of the article is sent to the referees again and the referees give the final decision as rejection or approval at the end of this process.

3. Rejection: It is the situation that the refuree gives refusal for publishing the article. The article can not be published if the refusal comes from the article’s two referees assigned. But if one of two arbitrators gives refusal and the other one gives approval decision, a third referee is appointed for that article.
