Peer Review Process

All articles are submitted to language and scientific review written by acknowledged experts from particular fields. The responsible editor appoints reviewers with consent from the Editorial Board. It is a common practice to appoint two or three reviewers in a particular field in conformity with recommendations of the editor/ Editorial Board. Acceptance of an article for publication depends on the final appraisal of reviewers. Generally, the appraisal of the article can lead to different types of recommendations such as:
acceptance of the article without revision,
acceptance of the article with a minor revision,
a new review of the article following revision,
rejection of the article.
If two reviewers differ in their final appraisal of the article it is recommended that the editor /Editorial Board send the article to the third reviewer for additional reading and final appraisal. Four repeated appraisals stating that „a new review of the article following revision“is needed, automatically imply rejection of the article. The reviewed articles are returned to the author with comments and recommendations. However, the names and final appraisals of reviewers will not be disclosed to the author.
Reasons for rejecting the article are as follows: unimportant subject matter, lack of originality, significant scientific errors, and shortcomings in presentation of results (poor quality of illustrations), disregard of general instructions to authors or irrelevance of the manuscript for the audience the journal is intended for.
