Guide for reviewers

The papers are reviewed by at least two independent Reviewers in line with the principles of double-blind review process, i.e. Authors and Reviewers do not know each other’s identity.

  • approve,
  • approve without change,
  • approve upon changes suggested by the Reviewer,

  • reject.

The Reviewers review the papers observing the principle of confidentiality and they do not use the information obtained during the review before the paper’s publication.

Comments of the Reviewers are sent to the paper’s Author. If the Reviewer makes the publication of the paper dependent on corrections suggested by the Reviewer, the Author has to do so in line with the comments formulated by the Reviewer The Author can respond to the Reviewer’s suggestions by presenting his/her justified opinion to the Editorial Team.
