Review Policy
The TMCS journal uses a double-blind review process, meaning that the identity of reviewers and authors is hidden from each other during the review process.

The peer review process
All submissions are subject to peer review and editorial control of length and style.
If the Editors judge that the manuscript meets the aims and scope of the journal Teaching Mathematics and Computer Science, it is sent to two Reviewers after a plagiarism check. The Reviewer and the Author remain anonymous throughout the “double-blind” review process. Reviewers are selected according to their expertise in their fieldwork. Submitted papers are reviewed by at least two independent Reviewers.
The primary task of reviewers is to assist the editorial team in making editorial decisions. Reviewers are requested to evaluate whether the manuscript has already been published in another journal, is theoretically and methodologically sound, contains results that are clearly presented and support the conclusions and is the bibliography appropriate.

Reviewers judge each paper based on the following scale:
1. accept submission;
2. revisions required;
3. resubmit for review;
4. resubmit elsewhere;
5. decline submission.

If the opinions of the two Reviewers differ significantly, the Editors will also seek the opinion of a third Reviewer. After the manuscript has been reviewed, a decision is sent to the Corresponding Author, along with recommendations made by the referees. All manuscripts are reviewed as rapidly as possible, but the review process usually takes 3-5 months.
