Peer-reviewing process:

The peer-review of the articles submitted to the journal involves two stages: initial and independent.

Initial peer-review implies a primary review of the manuscript by editors for its compliance with the subject matter and journal requirements. If a manuscript does not meet our editorial criteria and standards for publication, it may be rejected before the independent peer-review stage.

Further, in the process of independent peer-reviewing, the manuscript undergoes double-blind review, i.e. neither the authors nor the peer-reviewers know each other. The manuscript is considered by 2 blind peer-reviewers. The peer-reviewers are both members of the editorial board and external experts. The final decision on the selection of peer-reviewers is made by the editorial board. Peer-reviewers should be knowledgeable about the subject area of the manuscript, they should not be from the institution of the authors and they should not have recent joint publications with any of the authors of the manuscript.
