For more details, please see section IV below.

Standard Review Process

Price: 300.00 (EUR)


The time taken to review manuscripts under the standard review procedure from their submission to a decision by the Editorial Board on publication or rejection is 45 to 120 days. The review procedure is fully compliant with the Editorial Policies (for more information see here). If a favorable decision is made, a manuscript is published in a respective section of the journal issue.

  • in a case of editorial acceptance the manuscript will be publish Online First (Ahead-of-Print) within 14 days after its acceptance.

The FastTrack option does not preclude the need to follow submission requirements and Author Guidelines.

The editorial does not guarantee a favorable decision on publication for submissions peer-reviewed under the FastTrack option; however it guarantees that the timing of peer-review and all other editorial processes of submission assessment is expedited, including an unscheduled (urgent) meeting of the Editorial Board to make a decision on possibility to publish the manuscript. Therefore, if negative feedback is provided during peer-review, and the Editorial Board takes sides with the reviewers, the submission will be rejected. In this case the conditions of the FastTrack peer-review process are considered fulfilled (provided the authors receive a response within 21 days after payment). If the reviewers recommend any refinements to be made into the manuscript, a final editorial decision will be made with due consideration of the recommended corrections.
