Reviewing rules

Each manuscript is reviewed by two independent reviewers. The reviewers can not be affiliated to the same institution as the authors of the submitted paper. It is also required that at least one reviewer has to be affiliated in other country than author/authors of the manuscript. The authors do not know personal details of the reviewers. The overall list of reviewers is published in the website of the journal. Reviewing reports are prepared in written form providing the final evaluation and decision. Another reviewer is appointed when decisions are significantly different. The final decision of publishing a paper is made by the Editor-in-Chief.
