The Editorial Board of the World of Ideas and Politics carries out a preliminary verification of submitted texts to examine their relevance for the profile of the periodical and conformity to editorial requirements.
All texts are initially verified by thematic editors.
Texts that have been initially approved are submitted for reviews by two reviewers listed as collaborators of the Editorial Board. If a text is written in a foreign language, one of the reviewers is affiliated with an institution abroad.
The reviewers evaluating the text fill in a review form. The form is available from the website of the periodical.
The principle of anonymity is observed in the review process with respect to the author and the reviewers (double-blind review process).
In the review’s conclusion, the Reviewer has to state if the article should be published or rejected.
At least once a year the Editorial Board publicly announces (posts on the website) an up-to-date list of Reviewers collaborating with World of Ideas and Politics.
Detailed review principles of papers are in accordance with the guidelines of the Ministry of Science published in the booklet Dobre praktyki w procedurach recenzyjnych w nauce [Good practices in academic review procedures].
The periodical World of Ideas and Politics has introduced procedures necessary to eliminate cases of “ghostwriting” and “guest authorship”. Authors are obliged to assure that copyrights of third parties have not been breached. All authors are also obliged to assure that their articles are original works and have not been published, submitted, or accepted elsewhere in any form.
The article is qualified for further publishing procedure under the condition of receiving two positive reviews.
