Peer Review Process

The submitted papers are subject of a peer review process, in order to select for publishing the articles meeting the high standards in Electronics and Energetics. The reviewers’ identities are not disclosed to the authors, nor are the authors' identities disclosed to the reviewers.

When a manuscript is submitted to Facta Univeristatis, Series: Electronics and Energetics, it undergoes an initial prescreening by the Editorial Board in order to determine whether or not the paper fits the scope of the journal. If the Editorial Board feels the manuscript meets the journal’s minimum standards for publication, the paper then enters a reviewing process.

In the main reviewing phase, the assigned Section Editor sends the received papers, without the name and affiliation of the authors, to two experts in the field, by using the on-line web management system. The electronic evaluation form used by reviewers contains a checklist in order to help referees to cover all aspects that can decide the publication. In the final section of the evaluation form, the reviewers must include observations and suggestions for improvement that are sent to the authors, without the names of the reviewers.

All the reviewers of a paper remain anonymous to the authors and act independently before, during and after the evaluation process. They have different affiliation, are usually located in different countries, and they are not aware of each other’s identities. If the decisions of the two reviewers are not the same (accept/reject), the paper is sent to a third reviewer.

The final decision for publication is done by the Editor-in-chief based on the scrutiny of reviewers and the scope of the journal.

The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for the quality and selection of manuscripts chosen to be published, and the authors are always responsible for the content of each article.

 

Publication Frequency

The journal is published quarterly, in March, June, September and December.
