After the delivery of a final copy in Slovak, Czech, English, German, French or Russian via post or e-mail, the executive editor will evaluate the formal requirements of the text. The text is returned to be readjusted when it does not meet the criteria. Accepted texts are forwarded to two reviewers (one reviewer if the work is by a student) who are experts in a given field and are from different backgrounds to the author. The relation between the author and reviewers is bilaterally anonymous.

Once the text is positively reviewed, the submitted text is accepted for publishing. The text is refused if both our reviews come back negative. When one review is positive and the second negative, the author is requested to rewrite the text. Consequently, the text is entered in to a new review process.

When authors do not agree with the decision of the review, they can address their appeal to the editorial board that can confirm the reviewer’s decision or accept the text despite the review. The decision of the editorial board is communicated by the executive editor.
