Approximately 10% of the manuscripts are rejected without review based on formal criteria as they do not comply with the submission guidelines. Each manuscript is assigned to two peer reviewers. The journal follows a single-blind reviewing procedure. The period from submission to the first decision is up to 9 days. The approximate rejection rate is 55%. The final decision on the acceptance of a manuscript for publication is made by a meeting of the members of the Editorial Board (in complex cases) and by the responsible editors (usually two) with a subsequent report at the Editorial Board meeting (in usual cases).
If Editors, including the Editor-in-Chief, publish in the journal, they do not participate in the decision-making process for manuscripts where they are listed as co-authors.
Special issues published in the journal follow the same procedures as all other issues. If not stated otherwise, special issues are prepared by the members of the Editorial Board without guest editors.
