Peer Review Guidelines



The review is carried out by a Board of anonymous reviewers in which the Editorial Board has enrolled recognized scholars from different countries. External double-blind peer review of each of the presented papers is implemented. The name of the author is erased from the text of the paper (as well as from the file properties) and the received paper is consigned to two of the reviewers. During the evaluation process, they fill in a special review form and in its final part they mark their categorical opinion whether the received manuscript should be rejected or accepted (without corrections, with some necessary emendation and without a second review, or with a second review after the recommended necessary corrections have been done). The reviewers are obliged to send their reviews to the Editorial Board of the journal within 14 days. In case one of the two reviewers rejects the paper, it should be consigned for evaluation to an arbitrator whose positive evaluation is a necessary condition for continuation of the procedure.

After the submission of the review forms to the Editorial Board, the author is informed of the opinion of the reviewers and, if necessary, is provided with the final part of the review (Recommendations and overall evaluation) in order to make the needed emendations. The author should return the revised text of the article within two weeks. The name and the affiliation of the author are added to the text, and after that the article is sent for pre-press preparation and publication.

The Editorial Board has the right to reject the materials that do not conform to the purpose of the journal, its ethical rules and do not meet the requirements for publication.
