Articles accepted for consideration by the Editorial Board are due for review by two experts in the subject matter, are published free of charge.
Editoral Board is not usually recommended to publish an article in the nature of short-term (less than six months of topical) posts - Active log a lot of articles that are popular for decades.

- someone other than the author, can be potentially interesting article;
- why the reader should spend your time studying film;
- how long will the actual article, given that the normal life of publications in the Open Systems Journal is two to three years.
The editors reserve the right without the consent of the authors reduce the amount of articles with the aim of bringing it to the demands placed on the site and to the standards of typography.
Editorial Board establishes a correspondence film profile publications requirements for registration and forwards it to peer review, research interests are the closest to the topic. Rreviewing articles carried out by members of the Editorial Board and leading in their respective fields of high technology industry. Review period of two weeks for articles themed rooms, three weeks articles for permanent columns. At the request of the reviewer period may be extended.
