Submissions will be peer reviewed anonymously by at least two referees. The editors have discretion of seeking additional peer reviews where necessary. Authors will receive feedback and comments following this process and may be asked to amend their work accordingly. The editors reserve the right to make further minor editorial changes. Final proofs will be sent to authors for approval prior to publication, if there is sufficient time to do so, and must be returned by the stipulated deadline. Major alterations to the text cannot be accepted at that stage.

Thank you and we look forward to receiving your submissions.
