  12. Principles of reviewing
    • the manuscripts are reviewed by two independent reviewers from outside the scientific institution of the authors’ affiliation in double blind review process,
    • the review is in written form and ends with the conclusion concerning requirements of acceptance of the manuscript for publication or its rejection,
    • authors should expect to give detailed answers to reviewer's comments.
  13. The authors are obliged to respect the rules of scientific integrity, particularly editors require that each of authors made a significance contribution to the paper (i.e. no guest authorship) and that there was no other persons (without their names being mentioned) who made a significance contribution to the paper (i.e. no ghostwriter). Ghostwriting and Guest authorship are a manifestation of scientific unreliability and all detected cases will be exposed, including informing the appropriate authorities (institution employing the authors, scientific societies etc.).
  14. The final decision concerning the acceptance of a paper for publication is the right of the Editors.
