Peer Review Process

Receiving a manuscript does not imply an obligation to publish it. The Editor-in-chief decides on those papers suitable for publication. The decision is based on a blind peer-review system in which at least two experts working on the topic of the paper submitted should recommend publication.
After receiving the manuscript, it will be sent to both experts for review. They have to assess how it meets the criteria for publication. They should also recommend revisions for improvement of the paper (max 10 days).

Taking into account the assessments of the experts, the Editor-in-chief decides on the publication, which may be:
– accept the paper unchanged;
– accept the paper with minor revisions;
– accept the paper after major modifications are made;
– reject the paper for publication.

If major modifications are recommended, the paper will be sent for second-round review by the same evaluators.
