Texts submitted for publication are initially assessed by the editors, who have the right to reject texts at this initial stage if they violate the publication’s ethical principles, are unoriginal, fall outside the journal’s profile or were not prepared in accordance with the established guidelines for authors.
Positively assessed texts are then sent to two independent reviewers or are reviewed by the editor-in-chief of a particular issue (depending on its topic). In the case of two independent reviews, dual anonymity is observed (the authors and the reviewers do not know each other’s identity), and the written reviews will contain an unequivocal conclusion recommending the text’s acceptance or rejection. If the two opinions differ, the article is sent to a third reviewer. In the event of further doubts, the decision to accept or turn down a text is taken by the editors, drawing on the opinions of members of the journal’s Editorial Committee.
