Peer Review Process

Submitted articles will be first reviewed internally by editors to assure their basic quality and relevance for the journal. In the next step, submissions will be subjected to the double-blind peer review by at least two external reviewers (authors and reviewers are anonymous to each other). Reviews will be forwarded to authors along with the editor's decision.

Typical review process takes from 3 to 6 months (average 4 months), but can be longer under special circumstances. The papers are typically published within 1 to 6 months since acceptance of the paper.

To avoid editorial rejections, please read editorial How to increase probability of manuscript acceptance where are described typical reasons for editorial rejects.
