Submitted papers will be examined for the evidence of plagiarism using PlagScan automated plagiarism detection service. Manuscripts are examined by members of the editorial staff, and two thirds are sent to external reviewers to be peer-reviewed via a double-blinded process. We encourage authors to suggest the names of possible reviewers, but we reserve the right of final selection. Communications about manuscripts will be sent after the review and editorial decision-making process is complete. After acceptance, editorial system makes a final language and scientific edition. It is the responsibility of corresponding author to answer probable questions and approve final version.
