Submitted manuscripts are subject to a transparent review process. They are evaluated in terms of scientific and educational value and method of issue’s presentation.
The Editorial Boards follow with the guidelines of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), as well as comply with generally accepted ethical standards at all stages of the publishing process. Communication with the Authors has been effective,without delays.
