Article Handling Process

The author responsible for correspondence is responsible for direct work with the text, answers questions, and agrees on the final version of the article. In correspondence with the editors, the responsible author represents the interests of all co-authors. To resolve operational issues, the responsible author indicates the phone number.

Each manuscript goes through the following stages before publication:

1. The editors check the received manuscript for compliance with formal requirements.

2. The article is sent for blind one-sided review (14-30 days).

3.1 If the article is approved for publication → a literary editor works with the manuscript.

3.2 If the article is approved with minor comments → the manuscript is sent to the author for revision (3-5 days) → the author makes changes to the text (highlights them with color) → the literary editor works with the manuscript.

3.3 If the article requires re-review → the manuscript is sent to the author for revision (5-10 days) → the author makes changes to the text (highlights them with color) + writes a detailed response to the reviewer with gratitude for the comments and a description of the changes made → the article is sent for re-review (see item 2).

3.4 If the article is rejected → the text of the review and a reasoned refusal are sent to the author. The author has the right to request a second review (see paragraph 2) from another expert once, subject to a detailed commentary on the comments made. The second reviewer will be acquainted with the opinion of the first expert and the author's response.

4. Literary editor makes corrections and comments to the text → the author must answer questions and agree / reject the proposed corrections.

5. The agreed version is in the editorial portfolio until the moment when the editor-in-chief forms the content of the next issue (once a quarter). The editors agree with the author on the final layout of the article immediately before publication. All authors are notified by e-mail about the release of the next issue of the journal.
