Prior to the peer review, a technical review process is conducted by one of the members of the editorial team. The article is checked for compliance with the technical requirements of journal articles (i.e., word count, abstract, key words, citation style, complete references and figures). A plagiarism check is also done to ensure the originality of the articles submitted. Should an article have been sourced from existing publications (i.e., articles, monographs, discussion papers, and policy briefs) or externally funded, the author will be asked to indicate this.
A substantive review will be conducted by the editor-in-chief and the editorial team before forwarding the article to peer reviewers.
