Peer Review Process

The manuscripts should be uploaded on the website of the journal.

The reviewers return in maximum 2 weeks their conclusions. They respond to the following questions: is the paper suitable for this journal? can it be accepted? should it be revised? what revisions are mandatory? is the structure of the manuscript suitable? are the length, language, abstract correct?

Based on the comments of the peer reviewers the editor and the editorial office make a decision: manuscript accepted, accepted after revision, rejected. A revised manuscript is submitted to the same process as a newly submitted manuscript.
