What happens after submitting?

Your article will be sent to two reviewers. The reviewers have at least two months for the blind review process. You will then receive comments on your text from both of the reviewers (Techne reviewers form). After editing your manuscript you resubmit the text along with the "Techne author form" where you outline the changes that you have done.

After an editorial review, final changes will be made if needed.

After that the author sends the manuscript to URKUND for plagiarism screening. Send your manuscript as an attached file by e-mail to


The article will then be published as soon as possible. The whole process might take up to a year. Special issues might take longer.
