Peer-review policy

All materials, presented for publication, undergo strict reviewing process, which starts with the general overview of the material by a selected Editor from the Editorial Board. After being checked for compliance with the scope of the journal and scientific quality the material is selected for blind review.

The blind review proceeds with the materials being sent to a minimum of two reviewers and as many more as deemed needed by the editor. The reviewing process could consist of a single review round, in case of needed minor correction, or multiple review rounds, after which the material is selected or rejected for publication. On every step during the review there is a communication flow between the Editor and the Author, appointed as primary contact and as such - a representative of all the other authors (when applicable).

All major steps regarding the publication of the material, opening new review rounds, etc. are communicated to the whole authors' team.  

The final acceptance or rejection of a material is decided by the Editorial team and is strictly based on reviewers’ feedback, compliance with journal’s scope and the overall material quality and scientific value.
