Papers submitted for publication on time that conform to the publication guidelines will be evaluated by two anonymous reviewers and divided into four categories: (i) publish as it is; (ii) publish with minor changes; (iii) request major revision and another review; (iv) reject. Authors of the articles falling into the categories (ii) and (iii) will have one month to make revisions and improvements. The publisher reserves the right to reject the publication of papers categorized (iii) if justified (in case the number of papers received on time significantly exceeds the numbers of papers intended to publish).
Please note that once you get back the peer-reviewed and formatted paper from the editor for being finalised, further corrections should be kept to an absolute minimum, only typos and editing errors can be fixed.
