Peer Review Process
All manuscripts are reviewed by at least two reviewers. Authors are encouraged to suggest up to three reviewers. Final decisions will be made after authors have carried out all of the corrections recommended by the reviewers.
Normal turn-around time for evaluation of manuscripts is between five and seven months from the date of receipt. Authors can opt for fast track review for a fee.
AJPB is published twice a year in July and December
