Peer Review Process

CIE conducts a double-blind peer review process, which takes between 5 and 6 months once an article has been submitted. All documents must first be submitted online through our submission portal. 

The manuscripts are assessed in two phases. First, the editors review the scope and the quality of writing. Second, the manuscripts are double-blind reviewed by peer reviewers. There are four possible manuscript decisions: 1) Accept Submission, 2) Accept with Revisions, 3) Resubmit for Review, and 4) Decline Submission.

Publishing Frequency

CIE follows a continuous publication model, which means that once an article is ready to be published (i.e., after the review, copyediting and layout processes), it will be released online.
