It is mandatory to fill out, sign, and send the said agreement to the editorial board of PEPAN Letters.
In order to simplify the procedure of interaction between an author (coauthors) and the publisher we kindly ask you to send agreements on transfer of copyright simultaneously with the manuscript of the article to the editorial board.
This agreement is a contract of adhesion.
We draw your attention to the fact that the agreement enters into force under the condition of acceptance of an article for publication in English. If for any reason your article is refused by the editorial board of the journal, the agreement automatically loses force.
