The Head Editor shall take the decision to refuse the publication of an article if the manuscript does not fit the remit of the Journal, the plagiarism has been detected or a negative review has been received. In some cases of negative review the article can be sent once again for reviewing to another specialist or a member of the Editorial Board and the possibility of its publication can be considered at the meeting of the Editorial Board. The consideration of the manuscript and the decision on the publication or the return of the manuscript with a motivated refusal shall not exceed 1.5 month from the date of reception of the article by the editorial office.
