Peer review process

Every manuscript is peer reviewed, according to the following procedures.

Initial manuscript evaluation
Manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has not been published elsewhere, nor is presently submitted elsewhere, and that all persons listed as authors have given their approval for the submission of the paper. The Editors (Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editors) first evaluate the manuscript. The Editors will return a paper promptly to its author(s) at this stage if it clearly does not match the journal’s stated interests or level of quality. Submissions that meet the minimum criteria are normally passed on to a referee for review.

European Mathematical Society Ethics Committee: Code of Practice (2012).

Type of peer review
Mat. Bilten employs single-blind reviewing, in which the reviewer is unknown to the author, but the identity of the author is known to the reviewer.

Final report
The referee advise the Editors. The Editors’ decision to accept or to reject a manuscript will be sent promptly to the author, with suitably detailed explanations within 3 months of the submission.

The Editors’ decision is final
The Editors are responsible for the final decision to accept or to reject a given manuscript and there the process ends.

Open access policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

Mat. Bilten is distributed mainly through exchange and is sent to institutions and scientific societies willing to send in exchange other publications to the Institute of Mathematics at the Faculty of Natural Sciences of Mathematics, Skopje.
