The journal is issued three times a year (February, June and October). Manuscripts are received continually.
The papers submitted are the subject of an anonymous referee process. However, to shorten the referee process, the author(s) may propose up to five possible referees. At least four of these referees must not have the same affiliation as the author(s) and three of them must be from abroad. Of course, such a proposal need not be taken into account by the editorial board.
Submission of a paper implies that it presents original research which has not been published before and is not being considered for publication elsewhere.
Authors are required to send the LATEX source file preferably via e-mail to the address: firstname.lastname@example.org. If e-mail is not possible consult the editors: J.Svoren or R.Komzik (Astronomical Institute, SK-05960 Tatranska Lomnica, The Slovak Republic). Submission of the manuscript hard-copy (CAOSP-style referee option used) is welcome.
The figures should be in separate files and are required in the *.eps (encapsulated PostScript) format. The vector version of EPS format is required (the bitmap version can be used only in unavoidable cases and the executive editor must be consulted in advance). Coloured figures are excluded from the printing. The publisher provides an estimate of cost of half-tones printing on a special kind of paper (inserted pages) on request.
Papers must be written in English. As a rule papers are sent to a language corrector. The page charge of USD 2 per page is paid by the author in that case.
Papers with extended tables are published in the supplement. The limit is 12 pages.
The editors welcome and accept review papers resulting from a recently defended PhD thesis. The supervisor's comments are required simultaneously with the referee process.
This rule does not apply to the language check charges mentioned above.
Conference proceedings can be published as special issues of the journal. They are not included in the yearly subscription.
