Article Processing, This process has several sub-processes:
- Desk Evaluation by Editor(s)
A senior editor first screens the submission for desk evaluation. The senior editor evaluates whether the paper addresses a topic and uses a genre that fits with the scope and mission of Kursor and the paper has achieved a level of quality that justifies further evaluation by a review team.
The senior editor then makes a decision whether to seek appropriate reviewers. If the senior editor has a high level of expertise in the topic of the paper, he/she may engage for reviewing process. If submissions do not pass the initial screening(s), they are returned to the authors as inappropriate or rejected submissions. Papers that pass the initial screening are then sent to a panel of reviewers (usually two or three).

Kursor strives to provide authors with timely, high-quality reviews. Nonetheless, a full review process may take approximately 6 to 24 weeks from receipt of the manuscript to the first review result.
- Sending review result to author
Once review comments are returned to the editors, the editor distributes them to authors and makes an editorial recommendation regarding publication, revision, decline, or resubmit the publication. The senior editor uses this recommendation as a basis for his/her final decision.
The editors are guided by the recommendations of reviewers. Senior editors make a final judgment on a manuscript based on the review result, and send their report plus a copy of the reports provided by the reviewers to authors.

The editor provides the reviewers with a copy of the review reports they send to the authors. Authors’ names are removed from the copy of the review reports sent to the reviewers.
