Peer Review Process

The editors reserve the right to publish image attachments and to make formal and linguistic adjustments to the text. The editors only perform the final proofreading of manuscripts; texts requiring extensive revision will be returned to the authors for revision. Expert studies, essays and materials go through a two-way anonymous review process, which can have a maximum of two rounds, and subsequent approval by the editorial board. Each text is evaluated by at least one reviewer, and based on the review process, the board accepts the text, returns it for revision, or rejects it completely. The editorial board decides on the publication of technical communications, reports, reviews and annotations. The author of the text is informed about the result of the admission procedure in writing (by e-mail), no later than two months after receiving the manuscript. Respecting the requirements of the reviewers and the formal standards of the journal is a condition of any text. More on the review process here.
