Peer Review Process

  1. All scientific articles are submitted to the editorial board of the scientific journal via the Open Journal System (OJS). A manuscript of the scientific article is submitted with the Author(s) guarantee concerning the work presented for publication in the form approved by the order of the Rector of the University.
  2. The submitted articles are verified using the “CrossCheck” similarity check system of the organisation “CrossRef”. If plagiarism is detected, the editorial board of the scientific journal has the right to take action, including but not limited to, announcement of the correction of the error(s); rejection of the submitted scientific article; notification of the heads of the departments of the institutions of the authors and/or respective academic institutions or societies.
  3. The editor in chief, the executive editor or the editorial board of the scientific journal perform an initial screening of scientific articles and reject the scientific articles non-compliant with the requirements of the scientific journal (non-compliance with the priorities of the scientific journal, lack of originality or scientific character, etc.). Only the scientific articles that have passed the initial screening are submitted for peer review. The initial screening is conducted and reviewers are appointed within 3–6 weeks after the receipt of the manuscript of the scientific article.
  4. After passing the initial screening, the scientific article submitted to the scientific journal is peer-reviewed by at least two independent reviewers who are recognised researchers in the science field appointed by the editor in chief, the executive editor or the editorial board. The editorial board may request the authors to propose competent researchers to be included in the list of potential reviewers. At least one appointed reviewer is from a country other than the authors of the submitted article. The reviewers are appointed in confidentiality without the knowledge of the authors. If the submitted scientific article includes interdisciplinary problems, the reviews have to be provided by the researchers of different science fields or areas. The reviews have to be prepared within 3 months from the date of the submission of the scientific article to the reviewer.
  5. After the peer review, a scientific article may be accepted, returned to the authors for corrections or rejected based on the conclusions of the reviewers. The request to correct the scientific article does not guarantee that the corrected article will be accepted. The time allocated for the correction of the scientific article may vary from 2 weeks to 2 months from the date the comments are sent to the authors, depending on the number of the comments.
  6. The authors have to correct the scientific article following the comments specified in the reviews or give a reasoned explanation of why they refuse to consider certain comments. The corrected scientific articles are submitted via the OJS including a detailed written explanation of the corrections made. The corrections are highlighted in the text in another colour.
  7. If a second round of review is required after the corrections by the authors, the reviewers assess the corrections of the scientific article and provide the editorial board with their conclusions on whether the scientific article has been improved following the specified comments.
  8. If the opinions of the reviewers differ substantially, an additional reviewer may be appointed. The same requirements are applied to the additional reviewer and the main reviewers.
  9. The final decision regarding the publication of the scientific article or appointment of the additional reviewer is made by the editor in chief, the executive editor or the editorial board taking into consideration the comments and conclusions of the reviewers, the corrections by the authors and/or the conclusions of the second round review regarding the corrected article. This decision is final and not subject to further discussions or communication.
  10. The review form, approved by consensus of the editorial board of the journal, is compliant with the peer review practice. A mandatory review by the reviewer consists of the following recommended components:
    1. The title of the scientific article;
    2. The date of the submission for review;
    3. The assessment of the scientific article:
      • Compliance with the topic of the scientific journal;
      • Scientific level, scientific novelty and originality, relevance and importance of the topic;
      • Methodological validity, solutions for scientific uncertainty;
      • Presentation: the compliance of the title and summary with the content of the article; the assessment of the content of the article; the connection between the conclusions and the title of the article, the formulated objectives, the provided and substantiated research results; the correctness of citation; the clarity and level of the language;

                 4. The part of the review conclusions submitted to the authors and the editorial board:

      • The conclusion of the reviewer: accept in full, accept after the corrections requiring no reviewer’s follow-up; return for corrections requiring a second round of review; return for corrections requiring editor’s in chief follow-up; reject (indicating the reasons for rejection);
      • The reviewer’s remarks or comments to the authors;

                 5. The part of the review conclusions submitted only to the editorial board:

      • The reviewer’s comments to the editorial board;
      • The reviewer’s institution, the reviewer’s scientific degree and position at the represented institution (if these data are not specified in the reviewer’s OJS account), the reviewer’s signature. The reviewer’s confirmation of the review in the OJS is equivalent to their electronic signature on the document and has the same legal value as a signature in written documents.
