Author Guidelines

 The criteria for accepting and publishing manuscripts in the journal
1. Thematic scope and the sections of the journal

Manuscripts submitted for publication must correspond to the character of the journal (see bookmark: Focus and Scope).

2. Submitting manuscripts for publication, and technical requirements

The manuscript should be sent to:

or should be submitted directly by OJS:

It should be saved in the MS Word format (the DOC or DOCX format) or RTF and meet the requirements of the journal (see below: 6. Manuscript template and text formatting – guidelines).

In addition, a statement should be enclosed that the manuscript has not been previously published or accepted for publication in another publishing house; in the case of co-authorship, it is also required to include the relevant information about the contribution of each of the authors – see: Author Declaration Form.

3. Review principles and the decision to publish

Submitted manuscripts are subject to certain rules of peer review that determine the final acceptance or rejection of the manuscripts for publication (see bookmark: Peer Review Process).

4. Proofreading

The Editorial Team reserves the right to make linguistic and editorial changes in the texts accepted for publication. Before publication, the Author (or the Co-author who is the contact person) will receive the text electronically (or exceptionally a hard copy) for proofreading. The amendments made by the Author (or the appointed Co-author) should be clearly marked in the text. The proofreading should be finished until the deadline specified by the Editorial Team. Failing to submit the text after proofreading to the deadline is tantamount to accepting the text for publication in the version provided by the Editorial Team.

5. License agreement

The authors of manuscripts accepted for print sign a copyright license (see bookmark: Copyright License Form).

6. Manuscript template and text formatting – guidelines

Manuscripts submitted for publication should follow the journal’s formatting standard.
