Abstracting and Indexing

The journal is abstracted by several international databases, see the main page.


We implement a strict peer reviewing process and use Crossref/iThenticate for plagarism checking. In ethical issues the COPE guidelines are followed. The peer reviewing and editing process is short, the publication may appear in average within 3-4 months in the journal’s “Online First” page after submission of the manuscript.


The journal is electronically published four times per year. This is a diamond open access journal: publishing and downloading articles are both free of charge. The journal does not charge authors any article processing charges (APCs), submission, or publication fees. Users have the right to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full text of these articles.
