Editorial Procedure

Manuscripts can be submitted in English or Finnish languages. Following receipt of a submission, the corresponding author will be given notice that the files were received in proper order. Editors-in-chief may desk-reject a submission if it fails to meet the journal’s aims and scope or quality expectations.

If this stage is passed, the journal follows a double-blind reviewing procedure. Every paper is reviewed anonymously by two independent reviewers. For this purpose, authors are requested not to place their name, affiliation, or acknowledgment in the manuscript at first submission. The review process should not take more than four weeks (there may be delays during summer holidays), and the editorial decision following the double-blind review will be communicated to the corresponding authors in due time. The review process continues for accepted submissions until the reviewers are fully satisfied with manuscript corrections. Fully accepted papers will be published immediately online without queuing for an available issue.

There is no article submission or processing charge.
