The journal is currently in the process of transferring to the new publisher – Elsevier, and we will be using the Digital Commons platform.

This is related to our constant striving to improve the quality of the journal and its publication services.

The journal’s website – – will remain unchanged. The current issue will be published very shortly, and all previous issues can be found at the website.

Regrettably, the submissions system is not working at the moment. We expect the new system to be launched at the turn of January and February 2022. In the meantime, new submissions (the manuscript and related files, authors’ declarations, copyright statements, etc.) as well as all other correspondence should be sent directly to the journal’s email The papers that have already been submitted via ScholarOne will be processed in the meantime outside the system, naturally keeping all publication and ethical standards.
