Author’s responsibility

The author is the only responsible for the content’s originality (any accusation of plagiarism is addressed to the author and does not involve the editor’s responsibility). The sent materials musn’t be published or sent to other journals or publications.

 

Peer-review

First of all the articles are sent to the editor-in-chief to decide if the texts have an appropriate form and style.

After that, the materials will be sent to 2 reviewers from the journal. They evaluate the articles and give them a grade according to an unique evaluation grid.

After the reviewers observations, the editorial office communicates the observations to the authors and asks them to correct the mistakes. This process lasts approximately 3 weeks. Then the author is also informed if the article is accepted for publication in the original form, if changes are necessary or if the article was rejected.

Articles that obtained enough points at evaluation will be published in the Journal in a chronological order.

Articles with less points, but can be published after a correction made by the author, will be send back with the recommendation from the editorial office and will be reevaluated after the changes were made.

Articles which don’t reach the minimum criterion will be declined.
