Review Process

The submitted manuscripts are processed by a reviewing procedure, involving at least two independent, anonymous and conflict-of-interest-free reviewers for each submission. At least one of reviewers is a member of the international Editorial Board. The second reviewer is appointed by the Editorial Board depending on the topic of the submitted paper. Reviewers are instructed to give detailed comments on the paper, including an assessment of the paper's strengths and weaknesses, its degree of originality and novelty, and to indicate to which subgroup of the research community the results presented in the paper are interesting.

Editorial Process and Copyright

If a contribution of any type is accepted for publication, the technical editors (copyeditors) will work with the author(s) to bring the appearance of the article to the high standard used by the journal. Cooperation of the authors is essential for timely publication within the journal schedule. Copyeditors have the right to edit the submitted LaTeX source to make sure the appearance is according to the guidelines, but substantial changes to appearance will be consulted with the authors.

The copyright and the ownership of the contributions (long articles, short articles, book reviews, short book notices, special articles, etc.) remains with the authors, except that certain distribution and other rights are transferred to the publishers (see the copyright release agreement that the corresponding author has to sign in the name of all authors).
