In case of violation of the norms of academic integrity, the author will be denied publication, this fact will be reported to the institution of higher education or research institution where the author works.

At this stage, the compliance of the subject of the article with the directions of the journal and the correctness of its design in accordance with the basic requirements set out in the section "For authors" is also checked. In case of non-compliance with the basic requirements for the design of the article, it will be returned to the author for revision.

The second stage is double blind review. At this stage, reviewers determine the relevance of the material to the stated topic and the scientific level of the study. If necessary, reviewers can express their views on improving the article or a certain part of it, which will be notified to the author. There is a deadline of 15 days to amend and resubmit the article.
