2. A manuscript must contain at least 60,000 characters with spaces (excluding references) and at least 10 graphic objects (tables, graphs, diagrams).

The editorial board shall reject weak, carelessly written or otherwise unsuitable manuscripts before sending them for consideration and review; increase the number of reviewers to two external and one internal; use a cascading review system; and consider a possibility of public disclosure of information (publish comments made by reviewers together with the manuscript).
4. Priority shall be given to manuscripts of highly-cited authors that contain fundamentally new information.

Authors are free to post the initial draft of their manuscript on such public preprint servers as bioRxiv, arXiv, or in the related repository.
