Publishing process

  1. The publishing process on average takes about a year from the moment of article submission. We publish only articles with two positive peer reviews. Reviewers are appointed by the journal editor. The information about negative reviews is passed to the author immediately upon receiving the second review. If the article requires corrections, it will be sent back to the author with a deadline for introducing necessary changes. If the author delays with returning the article, the editors reserve the right to reject it or publish it in the next journal volume.
  2. The status of your paper will change during the peer-review process from (i) paper submitted  successfully (ii) under review (iii) editor decision : accepted; revising required; resubmit to review; (iv) decline submission.
