If one of the two referees has a negative opinion, the study is sent to a third referee. Studies can be published with the positive decision of at least two referees. Translated articles are sent to language and related field experts for evaluation in terms of conformity with the original, appropriate use of field concepts and language. Translations in which the experts express a negative opinion are not published. The publication of book and symposium reviews and doctoral thesis abstracts is decided upon the evaluation of the relevant field editors. The reviewer checks whether the author has made the requested corrections in the text. The checking process is completed within a maximum of 7 days. Articles accepted for publication are added to the early view and queued for publication.
