The research supervisor may be a researcher holding at least a doctoral degree. The recommendation must contain arguments in favor of allowing the article to be published.

3. The rules relating to assistants and lecturers set out in point 2 do not apply to researchers with a doctoral degree who do not need to obtain a recommendation.

4. In the case of texts in a foreign language, at least one of the reviewers is affiliated with a foreign institution other than the nationality of the author of the work.

5. We apply the principle that Authors and reviewers do not know their identities (the so-called double-blind review process).

6. The review must be in writing and end with an unambiguous conclusion as to the approval of the article for publication (in its current form or after taking into account the comments of the reviewer) or its rejection.

7. The rules for eligibility or rejection of publications are contained in the "Rules for Publishing Articles".
