Appeals Process

Authors possess the right to appeal editorial decisions. To initiate an appeal, the author must submit a formal appeal, stating the grounds, to the editorial office, specifically addressed to the Editor-in-Chief. It is advised that authors refrain from directly contacting editorial board members and editors regarding appeals. Upon receipt of an appeal, all editorial decisions are subjected to a thorough review, and the outcome of the appeal is considered final. Throughout the peer review process, which occurs before publication, Editor-in-Chief Serve as intermediaries in communications between authors and referees? In cases where consensus cannot be achieved, Editor-in-Chief may explore the option of soliciting comments from additional referees if deemed appropriate.
