The usual period of reviewing the papers takes three to four months, depending on the number of submitted materials. All of the reviewers of a paper act independently and they are not aware of each other’s identities. If the decisions of the two reviewers are not the same (accept/reject), the Editor may assign additional reviewers.

The Journal welcomes the manuscripts from authors whose articles can enrich the overall view of the geography and related scientific disciplines.
