Review Procedure

After the article is received by the editorial staff, the editorial board appoints it for blind review. All materials are usually sent to two independent peer reviewers to assess the scientific value of the manuscript. Typically, external review lasts 3-4 weeks. Reviewers remain anonymous.

After receiving reviews, the editor decides: Accept without revision; Minor revision; Major revision; Reject. If the manuscript needs to be finalized, it is sent to the author and, after corrections, to the reviewer. Provided that the author has taken into account all the comments of the reviewer and the latter agrees with the revised version of the manuscript, the scientific editor signs it for publication. The Editor-in-chief is responsible for the final decision on acceptance or rejection of manuscripts.
