Procedure for Peer Review and License Agreement
All submitted papers are checked for plagiarism, originality and novelty. The outcome is determined after analyzing the online check report and manual examination of original fragments, textual borrowings, quotes and citations. Contributions that passed the formal check undergo double-blind peer review by three experts (all personal information remains unknown both to the contributor(s) and experts). Accepted articles are assigned to an issue according to the journal's publishing schedule.
Reviewers assess the contributions according to a rubric, which includes a number of criteria: readability of the title; topicality of the article; matching the journal's area of focus; the degree of interest in the topic for both specialists and general readers; the article's compliance with the profile and the scope of the journal; field and contribution type (fundamental, interdisciplinary, or applied, survey, review article); academic novelty; practical relevance of data, conclusions and recommendations; references to reliable research sources; reliance on empirical studies (including those conducted by the author(s)); correct style and formatting of the contribution, its abstract, keywords and references in accordance with the journal's guides.
The Editorial Board informs the author about the decision upon his/her request. If a paper is not accepted, the Editorial Board sends a motivated refusal. The details of the reviews may be sent by e-mail (on request).
Submission date is an important factor in determining publication precedence. The average review duration is 2–3 months.
