    Peer review procedure

    All papers are  subject to the blind peer review procedure. Each article will be reviewed by two peer reviewers, internationally acknowledged experts in the field, appointed by the Academic Committee. Depending on the reviewers’ evaluations, the articles shall be categorized as:

    (1) original scientific paper – a paper which is characterised by originality of conclusions, or which presents previously unpublished original results of scientific research;
    (2) review article – an article which contains a detailed and comprehensive critical review of a certain problem area, but with no significant originality of results;
    (3) preliminary communication – a paper which presents primary findings of research in progress, which due to current interest require immediate publication, but without the level of deep and thorough study required for the scientific paper, and
    (4) professional paper – a paper which contains information and experience relevant for a certain profession, but without scientific characteristics.

    The reviews will be anonymous and the reviewers will communicate their comments, suggestions and corrections to the authors exclusively via the Academic Committee.

    Upon the publication in the Conference Book of Proceedings, the Editorial board will retain the rights to the printed and electronic versions of the published material.
