The Review Process

All submitted manuscripts go through by double-blind peer review, the authors do not know the reviewers and reviewers do not know the authors. Reviewing which is at least 4 weeks, it contains few steps.

First of all a manuscript can be accepted for consideration only if the same work has not been published or submitted for publishing elsewhere.

The second one is to make sure if the manuscript fits Aims and Scope of the Journal.

The next step is to verify that the paper is prepared according to the rules described in Author Guidelines.

Once this is done the manuscript is sent to an appropriate editor (referee) based on the subject of the manuscript. Editor (referee) reads the manuscript closely and provides the individual critiques in a form of a report which contains comments, remarks and recommendations such as “Accept Submission”, “Revisions Required”, “Resubmit for Review”, “Reject Submission” etc.

A reviewer shall asses the following:

- correspondence of the article’s title with its content and content with the journal’s scope;

- relevance of the topic under consideration;

- analysis of related publications;

- methodological research basis;

- coverage of the article’s topic in accordance with the set goal;

- reliability of conclusions;

- adherence to scientific ethics, the correctness of references, in particular, the presence of works by authors mentioned in the text;

- original contribution to the solution of the problem concerned, etc.

The editorial board sends the reports to author(s) by e-mail either with a final decision, or with a revision request, which in turn can be accepted or declined by the author(s). Once the editor (referee) is satisfied with a latest version, it can be accepted for publication by the editorial board.
