Submission Guidelines


The journal follows a strict selection policy. All submitted contributions are reviewed by two reviewers in a blind peer-review process. Reviewers are unaware of the authors’ identity and vice versa. They review methodology, style, formal criteria and content of the submissions. The authors are informed about the result of the selection process within two months.

Submitted papers are preferred to be 18 000 to 40 000 characters (with spaces) in length.

Submitted reviews are preferred to be 1 800 to 5 000 characters (with spaces) in length.


We accept articles written in Slovak, Czech, German, Russian, French, Spanish, Italian, Hungarian and Polish.
