All research articles received by the editorial board are subject to obligatory review.
The scientific editor determines correspondence between the subject of the article and specialization of the journal and the requirements for typography. The scientific editor also determines the existence of scientific research and correctness of scientific statements and calculations. After that the article is sent to a reviewer who is a Doctor or PhD and whose scientific specialization is close to the topic of an article.
Reviewing is anonymous. Reviewers are leading experts in the field of Art and Art education. After a detailed study of the article, namely its timeliness, scientific novelty and practical significance, reviewers indicate the positive aspects of the article and comment it in a written form.
If the review is favorable in general, but contains some comments, the author gets a copy of the review and the original version of the article for the follow-on revision. After finishing the revision the author sends the editorial board the correct version of the article, which will be referred back to the reviewer.
With a favorable review the article is sent to the editorial portfolio. If there are some comments again the article is sent to the author one more time. If the review is unfavorable, the scientific editor writes a covering letter, which together with a copy of the review is sent to the author. In cases in dispute the second reviewer is involved.
At the final stage of the reviewing the chief editor evaluates the article for publication.
