All submitted manuscripts will go through a rigorous peer review process by at least two reviewers who are experts in the paper's field. The review process was carried out in a double-blind peer-review. The factors considered in the review are relevance, significance, originality, readability, and language. Possible decisions include acceptance, acceptance with revisions, or rejection. If the author is encouraged to revise and resubmit the manuscript, there is no guarantee that the revised manuscript will be accepted. Rejected articles will not be reviewed. Acceptance of manuscripts is limited by applicable legal requirements regarding defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. No research may be included in more than one publication.

4. EiC Assigns an Editor
✔ Filogeny has a Team of Editors who handle manuscript review. An editor will be assigned at this stage.

5. Invitations to Reviewers
✔ The managing editor sends invitations to individuals he or she believes will be appropriate reviewers. When responses are received, further invitations are issued, if necessary, until the required number of receipts is obtained. All peer-reviewed publications will be referred to in the double-blind peer-review process by at least two reviewers with expertise in the relevant subject area.

6. Responses to Invitations
✔ Potential reviewers consider the invitation based on their expertise, conflicts of interest, and time availability. They then accept or reject. If possible, when they decline, they can also suggest alternative reviewers.
✔ Reviewers must keep all information regarding the manuscript confidential and treat it as privileged information.
✔ Reviews must be done objectively, without personal criticism of the author.
✔ Reviewers must express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
✔ Reviewers must identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the author.
✔ Reviewers should also call the Chief Editor's attention if there are substantial similarities or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and other published manuscripts of which they are personally aware.
✔ Reviewers must not review manuscripts in which they have a conflict of interest resulting from a competitive, collaborative, or other relationship or connection with the author, company, or institution connected to the paper.

7. Review is done
✔ The reviewer takes time to read the manuscript several times. The first reading is used to form an initial impression of the work. If major problems are found at this stage, the reviewer may feel comfortable rejecting the work without further work. If not, they'll go through the paper a few more times, taking notes to make a detailed point-by-point review. The results of the review are then submitted to the journal, with recommendations for accepting, necessary revisions, or rejecting them. Results from the review process are usually available within a month of submission.

8. Editor evaluates Reviews
✔ The managing editor considers all the reviews returned before making an overall decision. If reviews differ widely, editors may invite additional reviewers for additional opinions before making a decision.

9. Decision communicated
✔ Editor emails decision to author including relevant reviewer comments. The author must correct all revisions in the manuscript at the request of the reviewers. Reviewers should expect to receive the new version, unless they have opted out of further participation.

10. Final steps
✔ If accepted, the manuscript will be sent to the production department. The author will get a notification. If the article is rejected, the manuscript will include constructive comments from the reviewers and the editorial team to help the authors improve the article.
