For Reviewers

Papers published in the journal must meet certain criteria relating to audience, technical content, and presentation.

The review form is designated to help reviewers evaluate manuscripts. If revisions are recommended, reviewers should be as specific as possible in describing changes and should indicate which changes are recommended and which are obligatory. If a paper is rejected because it is outside the scope of the journal, reviewers are requested to recommend that the paper be submitted elsewhere. If a paper is considered un-publishable, reviewers should reject it completely.

The reviewers are asked to look at the manuscript soon after receiving it and return the review as soon as possible (but not later than 4 weeks after receiving the paper). If they cannot meet this term, other reviewers will be sought.

The review should be returned to the editorial office:
Meelika  N├Ámme
Executive Editor
Estonian Academy Publisher
Kohtu 6
10130 Tallinn

E-mail: meelika at kirj dot ee
Fax: +372 6466 026

Reviewer confidentiality. The editors of the journal never disclose the names of reviewers to authors except with the permission of the reviewer. Reviewers should regard a submitted manuscript as a confidential document. They should not use or disclose unpublished information in a manuscript except with the permission of the author(s). Since there is no direct communication between the author(s) and the reviewer(s) concerning a manuscript, that permission can only be obtained via the editors.
