Peer Review Process

Submissions to the journal will initially be evaluated by the Editorial Board using several criteria: the appropriateness of the topic and content for the journal; the editing (preparation of the manuscript) and format; and “general” merit. If these criteria are met, the submission will undergo a double-blind review process by at least two acknowledged and independent reviewers, with the review process taking up to 8 weeks. All the papers that pass the first editorial control are subject to the so-called double-blind review process which does not reveal the identity of the authors or reviewers. Only the papers that receive positive reviews will be accepted. One of the crucial reasons for the review is to provide quotations and references of relevant literature. The Editorial Board has the right to comment on the form of the paper before it is accepted for publication. The Editorial Board is not obliged to publish papers in chronological sequence of their receipt or in the sequence in which they have been accepted for publication. No substantial part of the submission should have been published elsewhere. The adducing of the results in extracts, summaries, abstracts, dissertations and Master’s theses, reviews and conference papers (up to three pages, containing abstracts, graphical presentations and references) are not considered as publishing. If the manuscript contains the results that have already been published, the author(s) must get the consent of the first publisher and quote the source clearly. The category of the paper is suggested by the Editorial Board in accordance with the suggestions of reviewers.


Publication Frequency

Journal will be published twice a year (July and December) in languages of Bosnia and Herzegovina and abstracts in English.
