Refereeing Process

The refereeing process followed was in accordance with DEST guidelines. Referees were chosen from the academic community and were independent experts in their chosen field. Each paper submitted for refereeing was submitted as a blind (unidentifiable) copy. Written comments were received from each referee for each paper. Papers requiring revision were returned to authors for the required changes. At no time were referees informed of the identities of the authors whose papers they were assessing.
