As the decision to reject a manuscript for publication will often involve the Editor’s judgment of priority/ importance, the authors are strongly advised to submit to another journal after getting a rejection. Authors may appeal a rejection by sending an e-mail to the Editorial Office of the journal. The appeal must provide a detailed justification, including point-by-point responses to the reviewers' and/or Editor's comments. The manuscript and related information (including the identities of the referees) will be forwarded to the Editor-in-Chief, Associate Editor, or Editorial Board member. A reject decision after the appeal process is final and cannot be reversed. Manuscripts cannot be submitted elsewhere while an appeal is being considered.
