Appeal Policy

While it is rare that a decision is reversed, authors can appeal the final evaluation decision. An email can be written to the editorial staff ( containing a few key points and convincing reasons (with supporting data) as to why the rejection should be reversed, as shown below:
•    Detailed reason, with supporting data, for why you disagree with the reviewer's decision and comments.
•    New data that can be taken into consideration.
•    Evidence that shows technical mistakes performed by the editorial board member.
•    Evidence that shows discrimination based on conflict of interest.
After an appeal is received, other editorial board members will review all the issues and the reviewer's comments/ criticism and decide based on the newly examined information. The decision may remain unchanged, or a new decision will occur, including Re-submission or re-review. Any decisions made after the appeal are final and not subject to change (no second-round appeal).
