Peer Review Process
The journal uses single blind peer review process, which means that the reviewer identities are concealed from the authors throughout the review process. Every single contribution submitted to ITC and selected for a peer-review will be sent to, at least, one reviewer, though usually it is sent to two or more independent reviewers, selected by the editors and sometimes to more reviewers, if further advice is required (e.g., on statistics or on a particular technique). Authors are welcome to suggest suitable independent reviewers and may also request the journal to exclude certain individuals or laboratories.
The primary purpose of the review is to provide the editors with the information necessary to make a decision. The review should also instruct the authors on how to strengthen their paper up to the point where it should be acceptable. A negative review should explain to the authors the weaknesses of their manuscript, so that rejected authors are able to understand the basis for the decision and see, in broad terms, what needs to be done to improve the manuscript in order to be published anywhere.
Journal is published quarterly in printed version and on-line. New issues of the journal appears on the following months of each year: March, June, September and December.
