The Acta Medicinae et Sociologica is a reviewed periodical. The manuscripts sent to the editorial board are forwarded to two independent external experts for review. The reviewers receive the manuscript without the author’s name, and then on the basis of the AMS’s set of review criteria they articulate their opinion. If both of them are supportive, the study can be published. The reviewers’ opinions, without names, as well as the set of criteria are sent to the authors. The manuscripts together with the suggested corrections are also sent back to the authors to be rewritten. If both of the reviewers reject the study, the manuscript will not be published, but if one of them supports and the other one rejects, a third reviewer is asked for a final opinion.
 
With the submission of the manuscript for publication, the authors acknowledge the above rights, limitations and declarations and agree to be bound by them.
