The reviewing procedures
The reviewing procedure complies with the recommendations by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education. Editors (knowledgeable and qualified in the field of study) make initial assessment if papers submitted to the editor’s office are suitable for the journal and if review is warranted. Then the papers are reviewed by two independent reviewers. They hold the title of professor or a post-doctoral degree in the specific field and they have the reputation of fair and unbiased reviewers. The journal uses the dou-ble-blind review process. If the selected reviewer does not accept the proposal to making a review, the Editorial Board of ZN AMW may select another reviewer. In cases of controversy additional reviewers are selected. Assessments of all reviewers are treated with due respect. The review is in the written form and concludes with an unequivocal recommendation to accept the paper for publication or to reject it. The reviewers are not allowed to use their knowledge concerned with the paper prior to its publication. The author is notified of the result of the review process and is provided access to the review once the reviewer’s identity has been blinded. Afterwards correspondence with the Editorial Board of SJ of PNA concerned with eventual comments becomes possible. The list of reviewers is announced once a year.
Authors are required to submit the paper together with the copyright transfer declaration and the declaration of contribution to the paper submitted (available at the AMW Internet site Zeszyty Naukowe AMW
