      1. editors of the Editorial Board;

      2. two reviewers from home and/or abroad with competence in the field of research.

After this, the editorial form is completed (Appendix 2).

At both stages of reviewing process the recommendations and comments of reviewers are made known to the author/authors in order to improve the quality of the publication.

The manuscript, rejected at the first stage of evaluation, is forwarded for repeated review to an expert in the field (professor, associate professor) from the Cahul State University “Bogdan Petriceicu Hasdeu”.

The manuscript can be:

      1. Accepted in its original form; 

      2. Accepted with minor changes; 

      3. Accepted with substantial changes; 

      4. Rejected. 

The Article accepted by the reviewer on condition of making substantial changes can be re-evaluated by the same expert in the scientific field for compliance to recommendations, elimination of inadequacies and improvement of the quality of intellectual work of the author. 

In the situation where there are major discrepancies between the opinions of reviewers at the second stage of the review process, the article is sent to a third reviewer. 

The manuscript rejected at the second stage of the review process can be presented by the author repeatedly only after a fundamental transformation of the article.
