Principles of peer-reviewing of the submitted articles

The Editorial Board carries out a preliminary verification of the submitted texts taking into account similarity of the topic of the article to the profile of the quarterly and compliance with editorial requirements.
Pre-approved texts are submitted for peer-reviewing by one of the persons enumerated in the list of reviewers that cooperate with the Editorial Office. If the initially selected reviewer does not undertake peer-review or a specialist in the field that the article relates to is not included in the list of reviewers, a person from outside the group of regular reviewers will be asked to peer-review the text. The review process is double-blind. Upon compiling the content of a subsequent issue, the whole material is once again submitted for peer-review by an external reviewer.
Peer-review performs a consultative function, which means that the final decision on approving the text for publication is taken by the Editorial Board.

Details of the peer-reviewing process are consistent with the requirements of the Minister of Science included in the brochure “Good practices in peer-reviewing procedures in science”.
