Reviewing process
The review process is a double-blind one. The members of the editorial board will make an initial assessment, assigning the reviewers with proper expertise for a thorough analysis. Two members of the international scientific committee will be simultaneously doing the reviewing. Referees are chosen so as their main specialization corresponds to the theme of the submitted article. Referees evaluate articles on the following criteria:

  • Original work;
  • Maximum three co-authors per article;
  • Correct use of the methodology;
  • Research results are clearly presented and support the conclusions;
  • Bibliographic sources indicate previous research that is relevant to the subject matter.

Both the author(s) and the referees remain anonymous in the evaluation process. Referees will not correct or edit the article submitted for evaluation. The final decision of acceptance or rejection of the article is taken by the Editorial Board based on evaluations received from the two referees.

The reviewing process will last for 15-45 days usually. Consequently, the authors will be informed about the status of their submission: accept, accept with minor revision, accept with major revision or reject. As an outcome of this process the authors are invited to continue it in order to be published, either to join the waiting list for publication or to eventually improve their paper and continue the reviewing process. Only articles accepted by the scientific committee will be published.
