Peer Review Process

Every submitted manuscript of an article is evaluated by two confidentially appointed reviewers and undergoes the procedure of double-blind peer review. In the cases, when the issues tackled in the article carry an interdisciplinary character, two reviewers from different fields are appointed. Both reviewers are scientists in their field, one of them necessarily coming from a different institution than the one of the author. If the reviewers disagree upon the quality of the manuscript, a third reviewer is appointed. The final decision on publication of the manuscript is made by the editor-in-chief. 

Reviewers should adhere to the ethical standards throughout the peer review process, i.e., provide timely reviews that are both relevant and constructive; declare any conflicts of interest, either real or potential; keep confidential the submission and contents of manuscripts sent to them for review; reviewers should not: make personal or derogatory comments about authors in their reviews; contact anyone else about reviewing a manuscript without the knowledge and permission of the journal from which it was received; report to journal any suspicions of misconduct and ask for advice on how to proceed (Hames, 2007).
