Peer-review process

The journal uses double blind peer review. All articles will be initially evaluated by the editor for compliance with the subject areas coverage of the journal. Then, articles that meet the journal' criteria will be sent to at least two independent expert reviewers to assess the article scientific quality. The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for the final decision on acceptance or rejection of articles. He makes a decision based on the opinions of at least two independent reviewers and the editorial board members recommendations.

The editorial decision is final.

Double blind peer review

The journal uses double blind peer review – this means that the authors identities are hidden from reviewers, and the reviewers identities are hidden from the authors.

The submitted manuscript (after initial adoption) will be converted into an anonymous file (without information about the author(s)) for review purposes.

Authors should take into account the critical comments of reviewers and editors and refer to these comments in a separate letter to the editor, submitted together with the revised files. Articles accepted for publication will be provided (in the form of an edited and pre-compiled final version) to the corresponding author for verification, which should be limited to correcting typographical errors.

The revised version of the manuscript should be submitted to the editor as soon as possible so as not to delay the editorial and publishing process.
