A manuscript is registered immediately after its arrival to the Technical Editor and a Correspondence Author is informed on it through the e-mail.
The submitted monograph is peer-reviewed by two or more (if necessary) experts and the expert opinions are e-mailed to the Correspondence Author. The authors should answer all the remarks of their Reviewer, make all the necessary corrections and resubmit their manuscript. Please, do it within 15 business days, in other case your manuscript will get a later submission date. Please, do not make changes in text, tables and figures, except for the corrections recommended by the reviewer.
As soon as an journal with your manuscript is designed, the Technical Editor e-mails a galley proof of the article to its authors for the proof reading. Please, read the texts thoroughly, correct all the errors made by the Editorial Board and e-mail the corrected text or a message confirming the absence of the errors within three business days. All the errors that remain in the text thereafter are the responsibility of the authors.
