Reviewing process

REVIEWING PROCEDURE APPLICABLE TO ARTICLES SUBMITTED FOR PUBLICATION IN “POLITEJA”


1. Each article is reviewed by two referees appointed by the Editorial staff and affiliated in Polish and foreign academic institutions.

2. The journal uses double-blind peer review.

3. Reviews should be completed within four months counting from the appointment of the referees. The holiday season (July – September) is excluded from the estimated waiting time.

4. Once reviews are submitted with an unequivocal recommendation for publication or rejection, the Editorial staff takes a final decision as to the acceptance or rejection. The decision is immediately communicated to the author, along with the reviews.

5. The Editorial staff may ask the author to revise the text in accordance with the reviewers’ and/or the Editorial staff’s recommendations. After revision, the article undergoes verification by the Editorial staff. Failure to comply with the reviewers’ and the Editorial staff’s recommendations may result in rejection of the article.
