All submitted papers are subjected to reviews. Each paper is reviewed by two reviewers from relevant scientific field. In order to avoid any form of subjectivity,editorial office ensures that the reviewers do not know the author who wrote the paper, nor the author knows the reviewers. In the case that the first reviewer writes a negative review, paper is not sent to second reviewer, but the editor in chief is responsible to inform the author in a written form of reasons for rejecting the paper.
However if the first reviewer writes a positive review, the paper is sent to another reviewer. If the other review is also positive, the paper is accepted and sent to technical process. If the other review is negative, the paper is sent to Editorial Board, which shall decide on further action.
If the reviewers positively review the paper, it is classified in one of the following categories:
