Peer-review process description

  • Following a submission, the corresponding author will be notified of the received files. Editors-in-Chief may desk-reject a submission if it fails to meet the journal’s aims and scope or quality expectations.
  • If the first stage is passed, the research paper follows a double-blind reviewing procedure. Every paper is reviewed anonymously by two independent reviewers.
  • The review process should not take more than four weeks (there may be delays during holiday periods), and the editorial decision following the double-blind review will be communicated to the corresponding authors in due time.
  • The review process continues for accepted submissions until the reviewers are fully satisfied with manuscript corrections. Fully accepted papers will be published immediately online.

The reviewers are asked to give one of the following recommendations:

  • to suggest that the manuscript is accepted for publication as such.
  • to suggest that the manuscript is accepted for publication after minor revision (comments included).
  • to suggest that the manuscript is accepted for publication after major revision (comments included).
  • to suggest that the manuscript should be rejected for reasons they set out.
