Peer Review Process

The submitted manuscripts undergo an independent double-blind peer reviewing by leading specialists. Based on the results of this review presented in the established form, the editorial board makes a decision whether to publish the article, as well as regarding the timeframe of its publication and possible need for its improvement.

Publication Frequency

The journal is published four issues per year.

Open Access Policy

This journal is practicing a policy of immediate open access to published content, supporting the principles of free distribution scientific information and global exchange of knowledge for the general social progress.

The policy of screening for plagiarismе


Plagiarism – promulgation (publication), fully or partially, of another's work under the name of a person who is not the author of this work

Self-plagiarism – re-publishing of large text parts from own scientific papers by the author without stating the fact of their prior or simultaneous publication

Textual plagiarism – full or partial copying of text fragments (modified or not) in the articles, theses, reports, books, manuscripts, theses, and so on.

The following actions clear characterize the process of plagiarism:

  1. turning in someone else’s work as your own; 
  2. copying another person’s words or ideas without reference to its work; 
  3. intentional omission the quote from the reference list; providing incorrect source data (such as "broken" links); 
  4. changing words order, while preserving the overall structure of a sentence;
  5. copying large parts of text or ideas that makes up the majority of new article.

Plagiarism is classified in the following categories:

  1. the exact verbatim copying (Copy & Paste) without a proper bibliographic reference to the borrowed fragments;
  2. copying with modifications in language, vocabulary and technological interpretation (the words switching, replacing letters, numbers, etc.);
  3. style plagiarism;
  4. translation from another language;
  5. idea plagiarism.

As the result of our research eTXT Antiplagiat plagiarisms detection software has been selected.


  1. Executive editor check all submitted manuscripts by "eTXT Antiplagiat" software at the stage of initial review.
  2. If plagiarism is detected - the Editors have the right to reject the submitted manuscript.
  3. The authors are responsible for the accuracy of the information presented in the articles, the accuracy of the names, last names and citations.
  4. In case of finding out plagiarism authors have the responsibility according to the current legislation of Ukraine (Law of Ukraine «On Copyright and Related Rights»).
