The average waiting period for an author to receive information on acceptance or rejection of a text is two months (including review by the editors, selection of 2 reviewers, and review preparation). This period does not include situations where changes must be made to the text (e.g. a positive conditional review).
At least two independent reviewers from outside the unit are appointed to evaluate each publication.
In the case of texts written in a foreign language, at least one of the reviewers is affiliated with a foreign institution other than the author's nationality.
The recommended solution is a model in which the author(s) and reviewers do not know each other's identity (the so-called "double-blind review process"). In other solutions, the reviewer must sign a declaration of no conflict of interest; a conflict of interest is defined as the following between the reviewer and the author: direct personal relations (kinship, legal ties, conflict), relations of professional subordination, direct scientific cooperation during the last two years preceding the preparation of the review.
The review must be in writing and end with a clear conclusion as to whether the article should be accepted for publication or rejected.
The rules for eligibility or rejection of publications and the review form, if any, are made public on the journal's website or in each issue of the journal.
The names of reviewers for individual publications/issues are not disclosed; once a year, the journal makes public the list of collaborating reviewers.
