Peer Review

The editors oversee the single-blind peer-review process for all articles considered for publication. Peer review is carried out by invited reviewers. The whole process takes place through the E-submission system. Peer-review is single-blind review, i.e., authors declare their names and affiliations in the manuscript for the reviewers to see, but reviewers do not know each other's identities, nor do the authors receive information about who has reviewed their manuscript.

The standard period for the preparation of a review is two weeks. Please, remember that the work of reviewers is carried out on a voluntary basis, therefore the review period depends on their availability and may take longer.

Based on the review, the reviewer chooses one of the possible conclusions:

  • accept;
  • send for revision (after the author revises and resubmits, it is subject to further review);
  • reject.

Usually, the editor appoints two scientific reviewers per article. If the opinions and recommendations of the reviewers diverge,  the editors may invite additional reviewers.

When resubmitting a revised article, the author should indicate how the reviewers’ suggestions were integrated, including an explanation why other suggestions were not taken up.  For feedback to reviewers and editors use the field “Discussion” on the article page. The standard deadline for revisions is two weeks after receiving the comments. If you need more time for corrections, please, inform the editorial staff on the article page.
