The reviewing process

Each manuscript is reviewed by two independent external reviewers. Reviews are based on the, so-called, double-blind review policy. Editors ask the Authors to identify at least two reviewers, which does not mean, however, their automatic choice. The names of reviewers of each publication are not disclosed. The manuscript is qualified for printing after obtaining two (2) positive reviews. In case of one negative review, the Editorial Board reserves the right to reject the manuscript. The list of reviewers is posted on the Journal’s website once a year (in the last issue).
