If the manuscript has been submitted previously to another journal or in another language, it is helpful to include the previous editor's and reviewers' comments with the submitted manuscript, along with the authors' responses to those comments. Submitting previous evaluatory review of another journal accelerates the review process. 

Peer review process

Authors are encouraged to suggest names of three expert reviewers, but selection remains a prerogative of the Editor in chief. The whole review process depends on receiving referees comments and revising the manuscripts based on these comments to the author.

The expected time between submission of the manuscript and receiving the first round of review results is 2 weeks. Accepted papers will immediately appear only online.
