Peer Review Process
All registered manuscripts undergo preliminary evaluation by the Editorial Office. If the manuscript is prepared against guidelines, is written in poor English and/or addresses non-related topic, it will be rejected without review. If manuscript meets all merit and formal requirements, it is deemed eligible for a review by at least two independent reviewers. Reviewers and authors remain anonymous throughout the review process and beyond (double blind review). The list of Reviewers is announced once a year. The review process should be completed within 2 weeks. The Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to make the final decision about accepting or rejecting a manuscript and also the right to reject a manuscript if it addresses non-related topics. Also, the Editorial Board (Publisher) reserves the right to edit (style, syntax, terminology, references) and shorten the manuscript without consulting the Authors.
