(Discussed at an - When authors resubmit, they can submit articles with a word count of up to 6600 words.

a. The article is then evaluated to determine if it has been sufficiently improved according to the reviewers’ comments.
b. If it has not been sufficiently improved according to the reviewers’ comments, the article is rejected.
c. If it has, it moves on to external blind peer review.
- When the article returns from external blind peer review, depending on the comments from the reviewers, a combined report from the reviewers (to maintain anonymity) is sent to the author(s) with the option of reworking and resubmitting the article within three weeks or the article is rejected
- A reworked article after external review can have a word count of between 6800-7000 words.
- The reworked article (after external review) is then re-evaluated to determine if it will be published or rejected. This is the editor’s decision and the decision is final.
