Cerne is free of fee to submit and publish your article.
Submitted manuscripts must be written in English, be original, and be in accordance with the journal's standards and not be submitted for publication elsewhere.

When necessary, it must be attested that the research in question was approved by the Ethics and Biosafety Committee of the institution to which the author responsible for the manuscript submission is linked to.
By submitting the article, the authors agree that the copyright of the same is automatically transferred to the Journal Cerne. Authors can use the article after publication, without the prior permission of Cerne, as long as publication credit is given to the Journal.
During the process of publication, the submitted manuscript is evaluated, preliminarily, by the scientific editor that checks if it fits the scope and follows the guidelines of the journal. During this pre-analysis the manuscript may not be accepted for publication. The scientific editor examines the merit of the work and, if considered that it has the potential to be published, sends it for evaluation of at least two referees (reviewers). Based on the opinions of reviewers the scientific editor recommends the acceptance or not of the manuscript to the editorial board. This board ultimately decides whether the article should or should not be published."
