    Peer Review Procedure
    Submissions are double-blind peer-reviewed, and for this reason should be accompanied by a separate page that includes the article’s title and the author’s name, affiliation, and contact details. The article itself should include only its title, not the name of its author, and the author should avoid self-identification in the argument or documentation of the article. Final decisions about acceptance for publication are made by the General Editors.
