Peer Review

Peer review procedure is based on "double blind" method. The authors will receive recommendations to improve the paper and final decision after a full evaluation.

Submissions are made through an online platform or on email 

Double-blind peer review: Reviewers are unaware of the identity of the authors and they are also unaware of the identity of reviewers. There are at least three or more reviewers for the total number of articles in each issue. If is necessary for interdisciplinary papers the third reviewer is nominated for better scientific approach in valuing the novelty and/or originality of the paper. The process of review takes between 6-8 weeks per paper. During this process, the editorial assistant ensures the communication between the authors and the reviewers. There are two reviewers on each paper and the review process is independent. If necessary, in case of opposite evaluation report, the third reviewer is included and the final decision is based on the negotiation process between them.
