    Ethical Standards & Plagiarism Policy

    The Polish Political Science Yearbook (PPSY) publishes peer-reviewed papers to present current findings of political science and related disciplines - our main objective is to present research results which are accurate and trustworthy. Therefore, the PPSY prevents copyright infringement, plagiarism and other breaches of best practice in publication. We are committed to meeting standards of ethical behaviour at all stages of the publication process. The PPSY follows the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) guidelines in order to meet these requirements.

    Publication of peer-reviewed papers involves different parties, which contribute to the realisation of our objective. Therefore, the author, the journal editor, the peer-reviewer, the publisher and the publishing partner have a responsibility to meet ethical standards at all stages of the publishing process, from submission to publication and dissemination of work. Below, we present a summary of the PPSY Ethical Standards:

    • Editors are expected to act in a balanced, objective and fair way, without prejudice or discrimination on grounds of gender/sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, ethnic, national or geographical origin of the authors; to handle special issues in the same way as other submission, so that papers are accepted solely on their research merit and without commercial influence; to follow the COPE guidelines for editors; to use anti-plagiarism software provided by the publisher; to give authors a reasonable opportunity to respond to any complaints and address their responses.
    • Reviewers are expected to alert the editor to any potential conflicts of interest, and if necessary to withdraw their services; to alert the editors to any published or submitted content that is substantially similar to that under review; to maintain the confidentiality of any information supplied by the editor or author; to review the manuscript objectively and without prejudice, in a timely manner; to contribute to the editorial process with an assessment based on the current state of arts.
    • Authors are expected to assert that the manuscript as submitted is not under consideration or accepted for publication elsewhere; to confirm that all the submitted work is original and to acknowledge and cite content reproduced from others, if necessary to obtain permission to reproduce content; to ensure that presented studies involving humans conform national and European laws and ethical requirements (including privacy protection) and that participants freely expressed their permission; to declare any potential conflicts of interests; to list all substantive contributors as authors; to inform the editor about all supporting institutions; to notify the journal editor or publisher if a significant error in the publiction is identified; to maintain records of data associated with the manuscript, and to provide access to these data if requested.
    • Professor Czesław Mojsiewicz International Cooperation Fund and Publishing Partners are expected to ensure that good practices and the ethical standards are maintained; to review the publishing standards every two years and suggest improvements to the Editorial Board; to support editors, reviewers and authors during the publication process.

    Misconduct, unethical behaviour and plagiarism may be identified and brought to the attention at any time and by anyone. The notification to the editor or publisher should provide information and evidence in order for an investigation to be initiated - all allegations are taken thoughtfully and treated in the same way, until a successful decision or conclusion will be reached. The editor-in-chief is responsible for the initial decision. Evidence should be gathered while avoiding spreading any allegations beyond those who need to know. Minor misconduct is dealt without the need to consult more widely - the author should be given the opportunity to respond to any allegations. Serious misconduct might require notification of the employers of the accused - the editor-in-chief should make this decision by further consultation with a limited number of experts.

    Outcomes of identified misconduct or unethical behaviour (may be applied separately or in conjunction):

    • Informing the author or reviewer about misunderstanding or misapplication of journal's standards.
    • Letter from the editor-in-chief covering the misconduct.
    • Formal notification of the misconduct.
    • Retraction or withdrawal of a publication from the PPSY.
    • Formal letter to the head of author's or reviewer's department or funding agency.
    • Reporting the case and outcome to a professional organisation or higher authority for further investigation.

    • Review Process

      The Polish Political Science Yearbook (PPSY) publishes only these paper which has received positive reviews. All articles and research reports submitted to the PPSY are double-blind reviewed by two independent peer reviewers. Positive reviews are the necessary condition to publish a paper – if assessments are profoundly different, the PPSY may ask another expert to deliver a final evaluation.

      The accept only papers in British English, which meet formal standards and essential requirements. If the article fulfils these criteria, we send the anonymous copy to two independent reviewers. The review takes less than four months typically, however in some cases it may be extended up to six months. Two positive reviews are the necessary condition to publish a paper in the PPSY. Authors receive anonymous copies of reports, and they have a month to present the final version of the paper. The final version should answer all issues mentioned by the reviewers. Rejected papers can be resubmitted to the PPSY (after essential edition) not earlier than six months after the rejection.

      Instructions for Reviewers

      The Polish Political Science Yearbook (PPSY) uses the standardised procedure of paper's review. The assessment includes two stages: the initial review and the detailed review (see: the review form).

      • Is the paper well structured?
      • Is the paper correctly using addition material, i.e. tables, image, charts or diagrams?
      • Is the paper referring to the essential literature?

      The detailed review offers a developed assessment of paper's contents, including following questions:

      • Is the paper meeting best standards of study design?
      • Is the paper applying adequate methodologies?
      • Is the paper presenting valuable findings?
      • Is the paper contributing to the discipline?
      • Is the paper based on innovative approaches?
      • Is the paper presenting its findings?

  • How to Reckon with Past Evils? Rethinking Transitional Justice Strategies in Post-Authoritarian and Post-Conflict Environments

    The Łódź PPSY International Seminar Transitional Justice: Between Redemption and Retribution. Łódź (June 6, 2017), University of Łódź, Professor Czesław Mojsiewicz International Cooperation Fund and the Editorial Board of the Polish Political Science Yearbook.

  • Editorial

    Dear Readers, I am very pleased to present you the 45th volume of the Polish Political Science Yearbook (2016). From the beginning, the journal was connected with the Polish Association of Political Science (established in 1957) and in fact, played a role in its organ. At first, the periodical was published under the title Polish Round Table, and then the name was changed into the current one. The fundamental aims of the Polish Political Science Yearbook for the last 45 years and even earlier have not changed. The authors have made an effort to maintain and even increase the quality of publishing papers. These aims were and are the priority tasks. In the near future the deepened emphasis will be directed towards theoretical and methodological background of every paper. The PPSY will be more open for scientific discourse on various vital challenges and threats of contemporary political science in Poland and in the World.

  • Editorial

    We are very pleased to present you the latest issue of "Polish Political Science Yearbook" (2015, Vol. 44). We hope that the broad spectrum of the problems discussed will be for you a useful source of inspiration and knowledge. Articles published in this issue elaborate the extremely diverse topics – from political theory and problems in bilateral and multilateral relations to different questions in various policy areas.
