Manuscripts sent for publication in the journal should emphasize the novelty of presented methods and/or techniques, and demonstrate their performance through experimental tests, reliable simulations or numerical examples. Articles directly concerning measurement process should contain adequate analysis of measurement uncertainty.

A cover letter with clear explanation of scientific novelty, significance and utility of solutions proposed in the manuscript sent for publication is strongly recommended. Articles based on substantially extended and updated contributions presented at scientific conferences, or strongly related to previous authors’ works, must be accompanied with a cover letter file which should explain in details changes made in the manuscript in comparison with original conference paper and highlight the novelty in reference to other authors’ works.

The average publication cycle is 6 months.
