Peer Review Policy

• If one of the reviewers’ reports states that the article "cannot be published" and the other reviewers’ report states the article "can be published", the editor sends it to a third reviewer, and the responsible author is notified of this result via e-mail or journal platform.
• If one of the reviewers’ reports states that the article needs "editing" and the other states that the article "cannot be published", the editor reviews the article once more. After this review, the editor either cancels the whole process or sends it to a third reviewer and the responsible author is notified of this result via e-mail or journal platform.
• If at least one of the referee reports states that the article should be "corrected", the article will be sent back to the author with both of the referee reports via e-mail and journal platform. At this point, the author is requested to complete the editing on the article within one month and upload the edited article to the journal platform.
• The author uploads the edited article to the system and the reviewers’ review the article again and state their opinion within four weeks.
• If the reports coming from the reviewers’ state that the article "cannot be published", then the author is notified of this result by an e-mail and journal platform, and the article is taken out of the review process.
• If the reports coming from both reviewers’ state that the article "can be published", then the author is notified of this result by an e-mail and journal platform, and the article gets taken into the publication alignment.
• The reviewers upload their review reports about the articles within a four-week period.
• The uploaded article(s) are taken into a review by the editor for seven days with respect to content, form and publication policy. The articles that are not in line with the policies are not reviewed any further and not redirected to the reviewers. The articles that are in line with the policies and successfully pass the preliminary review are directed to editorial board and to list two reviewers by the editor.
