Peer Review Process


All submitted manuscripts relevant to the journal’s profile are reviewed.
All referees are eminent external experts in relevant fields, with papers published in these fields in the past three years. The reviewers must not be from the author's own institution, and they should not have recent joint publications with any of the authors.The Editorial Board applies the iThenticate (CrossRef and CrossCheck) service for verifying the originality of submitted papers and for preventing duplicate publishing and plagiarism.

The Journal applies a ‘double blind peer review process’ for papers. Authors and reviewers are anonymous to each other in the process of review. Reviews after the article has been published are allowed and encouraged for subsequent evaluation of papers and authors.

A peer reviewer assists the Editorial Board in making editorial decisions and, through the editorial communications with the author, they may also assist the author in improving the paper.  Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse themselves from the review process. During the review process , the Editorial Board may require authors to provide additional information (including raw data) if they are necessary for the evaluation of the scholarly merit of the manuscript. These materials shall be kept confidential and must not be used for personal gain. 

Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the Editorial Board.
Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly, with supporting arguments. Reviewers (trebalo bi se opredijeliti za jedan oblik, referees or reviewers)should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the author. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation.The reviewer should also call to the editor's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in the reviewer’s own research without the express written consent of the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through a peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

Papers classified as scholarly must have at least two positive reviews. Throughout the process, all of the reviewers of the paper act independently and they are not aware of each other’s identities. If the decisions of the two reviewers are not the same (accept/reject), the Editor may assign additional reviewers.

A usual reviewing period is 15 days.

Having finished the review, the referee makes one of the following decisions:

- “Publish without any changes”,
- “Publish with suggested changes”,
- “Change and resubmit for a review”,
- “Refuse the manuscript”.

The Editorial Board then informs the author about the contents of the review and suggests that the referee’s decision be followed.

The Editorial team is obliged to ensure reasonable quality control for the reviews.  In case reviews are convincingly questioned by authors, special attention will be paid to ensure that the reviews are objective and high in academic standard. When there is any doubt with regard to the objectivity of the reviewers or quality of the review, additional reviewers will be assigned.

The detailed instructions on following the referee’s decision are available on the web page Instructions for Electronic Editing - ASEESTANT. Reviews are processed electronically through the ASEESTANT system for journal online editing and publishing. The ASEESTANT supports all activities of editorial management, from a creation of a journal page, over article submission, monitoring of the reviewing process, documentation administration, and maintenance of record keeping, to making final decisions and publishing volumes on the journal’s own web page.

The Editorial Board has an obligation to send to the author a copy of the review or the rationale to account for the refusal to publish the manuscript. Copies of reviews are also sent to the Ministry of the Education of the Republic of Serbia and the Ministry of Science and Technology of the Republic of Srpska at their request submitted to the Editorial Board

All reviews are kept in the archives and in the ASEESTANT system for journal electronic editing and publishing for the minimum period of 5 years.
