When the submitted articles arrived to the journal, one of the Editors read each manuscript. Editors have to decided first decision very quickly. We aim to reach a first decision on all manuscripts within one or two weeks of submission. During the first decision, journal editors mainly check: does the manuscript fit the journals scope and aim and minimum acceptable quality? Is the manuscript compliant with the journals instructions for author? Editor decides whether or not to send it for full peer review. If a paper is rejected without external review, authors are notified electronically on decision time by email. We retain copies of rejected manuscripts for three months, after which we delete them from our system. Only after clearing the initial screening is the manuscript sent to peer reviewers. Minimum of two peer reviewers are selected for peer-review process. Names of reviewers and authors are not revealed to each other. We ask authors to declare potential conflicts of interest any of the reviewers. The final decision concerning the manuscript is made during the regular Editorial meeting. All the evaluation reports from the reviewers are reviewed and final decision is reached on the base of originality, quality, importance, scientific merit and ethical issues of the article. All authors are asked to submit any conflict of interest and complete and sign the Copyright Release Form. We send the reviewers’ comments to authors whether or not we accept the article. Linguistic corrections are made by the native English language editors when we think that it is acceptable. If the manuscript does not seem to fit, it may be better sent straight to another journal.
