Publishing process

  1. The Author submits the paper to the Editorial Team using the editorial system Before submitting the manuscript via the system, the Author makes sure that the file does not contain his/her name and surname or affiliation. Manuscripts which are not research papers are sent to the Executive Editor by e-mail.
  2. Upon receiving the manuscript, the Editorial Team verifies the information given by the Author, and in particular checks whether the Author attached signed scans of the copyright declaration and whether the file does not contain the names and surnames of the authors and their affiliations.
  3. The Editorial Team sends the article to Reviewers through the editorial system.
  4. After accepting the invitation to review a paper, the Reviewer downloads the full content of the paper from the panel and then evaluates it filling in a special review form. The Reviewer presents their opinion and suggests which decision should be taken by the Editorial Team. The Reviewer can choose one of the following decisions:
          1. accept without any changes,
          2. accept upon minor changes suggested by the Reviewers,
          3. accept upon major changes and re-review,
          4. reject.
    The decision taken by the Reviewer is only a suggestion, since the final decision concerning a particular paper is always made by the Editorial Team.

          1. accept without any changes,

          4. reject.
