Review policy

Our journal implements a double-blind peer review (i.e. submissions are reviewed by an independent expert in the matching discipline with anonymity for both author and referee) of submitted manuscripts that encourages authors to meet accepted standards. It is designed to prevent dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Peer review provides authors an opportunity to improve the quality and clarity of their submissions.

A reviewer is asked to pay special attention to the following issues:

Adequate referencing prior work of the researchers who made initial contributions to the field.
Presence of a clear abstract (500-600 characters) that renders a concise summary of the paper; its structure may mirror the structure of the paper.

A clear specification of the author’s contribution.

Average time from submission to first decision: 4 weeks

After the review the reviewer’s conclusion with comments are sent to the author. A corrected version of the manuscript should be returned to the editor no later than 15 days after receiving the review. Otherwise, the editorial committee may reject the paper or postpone its publication.

The time from submission to online publication on average is 12 weeks.
