When publishing what is important for you?

Timely decisions?

Simple submission process?

Impact Factor (JCR) > 1?

Ethics and passion for quality?

We offer all of this!


We respect your time

After submitting a manuscript for ABB, we quickly work to decide if it fits our scope, guidelines and impact policies. Thus, it is expected that within a week we will have a first decision – when the manuscript goes further on the review process, you will see your status changes to “Awaiting Referee Assignment/Invitation/Selection/Scores”; if Editor-in-Chief decides that the manuscript is not able to that, you will receive a notification of “Reject” or “Reject and Resubmit”. Please note that essentially descriptive manuscripts are strongly discouraged.
