The papers submitted by authors are collected by the editorial secretaries of both branches (Ethnography and Museology, Natural Sciences). Afterwards they are handed in to the scientific editor. The latter one examines the papers and proposes them for discussion and approval to the Editorial Board. The procedure of blind peer-review (the evaluation of each article by two independent reviewers who do not know the identity of the author of the paper) is compulsory. The review of scientific articles is anonymous.
The Editorial Board is responsible for reviewing the papers. The Editorial Board selects reviewers from among scientific experts that are renown in the Republic of Moldova and abroad. At least one review should come from outside (from another scientific institution than MNEIN). In order to facilitate the process of reviewing there are drafted samples of reviews for scientific papers.
