The paper presents the steps of the editorial process of manuscripts: assessing the subject of the paper and the overall quality of the manuscript; checking if the formal submission criteria are met; sending the manuscript for peer-review; and proof-reading of the manuscript. Authors commit a range of typical mistakes when writing a manuscript and in many cases, these mistakes determine whether the article will be published or rejected by the publisher. Authors must proceed in compliance with the formal submission requirements of the relevant journal. Special attention needs to be paid to the citations, as well as the list of references, to language and grammar; the appropriate terminology; the structure and layout of the text. Content-related requirements include choosing a novel subject, adopting an evaluative approach towards research results, and presenting a theoretical conclusion of the findings. The paper must formulate a message that will be clear and concise both for publishers and readers.
