All manuscripts submitted to e-FLT will undergo the following review procedures:
Step 1: Internal Review
The manuscript will be read by the Editorial Board of e-FLT for an initial assessment of its suitability for publication (please refer to item 2 under Journal's Policies).
Step 2: External Review
Manuscripts which meet e-FLT's basic requirements will then be sent to two external reviewers for blind peer refereeing.
The results of the review, i.e. comments, suggestions and recommendations of the referees, will be sent to the authors (wherever possible, by e-mail). Typically, authors will be notified of the status of their manuscripts (accepted without revisions/accepted pending changes/to be revised and resubmitted/rejected) after the completion of the internal and/or external review process.
