Guide for authors

The articles should be written in good English either American or British. Do not use both languages in one article. Articles written in poor English will be rejected and not sent out for review. An article may also be rejected because of the editor’s negative opinion on its scientific level. It can happen even if some of the reviewers support the publication of the article.

Reviewing Procedures

To evaluate each paper we refer to at least two independent reviewers from outside the research unit affiliated to the author(s) of the paper. At least one of the reviewers is affiliated to an institution from a country other than the country of the origin of the paper. All reviewers are asked to disclose any actual or potential conflict of interest including any financial, personal or other relationships with author(s) of a paper.

The author(s) do not know the identity of the reviewers (single-blind review process). A review has to be in writing and must contain a clear proposal concerning the authorization of a paper for publication or rejection. Reviewers give their decisions as well as provide comments using the standard score sheet prepared by the editors. In case of a conflict between the authors and reviewers an additional reviewer, a person recognized as an expert in the field, indicated by the editors, ultimately resolves the problem.
