  • The Review Policy

    Key Information

    • This section explains the journal’s review and ethical policies. Please read it carefully
    • The journal employs double-blind peer review policy for evaluating papers
    • In terms of ethics, the PPSY relies mostly on COPE Guidelines and enriches them with own principles
    • This section provides the blank review form and copyright agreement
    • Although the PPSY uses the double-blind peer review policy, the Editors publish the list of reviewers for each year. It is the requirement of the local policy for higher education. However, the lists do not enable assigning reviewers to specific papers to avoid ethical infringements
    • The journal is published fully under Open Access policy and the CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 license

    Review Policy

    Review Process

    All papers and research reports published in the PPSY are double-blind peer reviewed by two independent experts in the given field. Their assessment focuses on standards of study design, applied methodologies, the value of findings, contribution to the discipline, innovative approaches, and presentation of results. In order to check the detailed questions for evaluating papers, download the PPSY review form by clicking here. 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 PPSY accepts papers written in English and meeting formal standards and essential requirements. If the article fulfils these criteria – which is verified by the Secretary of the Board – the respective Section Editor sends an anonymised manuscript to two independent reviewers. Typically, the review takes less than two months. However, in some cases, it may be extended up to three months. Receiving two positive reviews is the necessary condition to publish a paper in the PPSY. Received reviews are verified and processed by the Section Editor and, if they are consistent, sent to the Author as anonymised comments. If the reviews suggest inconsistent results, the Section Editor sends the paper to another reviewer. If the doubt remains, the paper is assessed collectively by a Section Editor under the advice of the Editorial Board. Authors required to revise their papers are provided with a month to present the final version of the paper. It should answer all comments mentioned by the reviewers. If required by the assessing experts, the paper is sent for another review verifying the work’s revisions and progress. Rejected papers can be resubmitted to the PPSY after essential edition, not earlier than six months after the rejection. Authors who receive the positive decision are asked for signing the copyright agreement.

    Instructions for Reviewers

    The Polish Political Science Yearbook uses the standardised procedure of paper's review. The assessment includes two stages: the initial review and the detailed review (see: the review form). The reviewer is asked to consider a general value of submitted paper, applied standards, and possible impact on the discipline.

    The initial review includes an overall evaluation of paper's contents, including following questions:

    • Is the paper meeting scientific standards?
    • Is the paper meeting research standards in the discipline?
    • Is the paper presenting its objectives?
    • 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 scientific standards?
    • Is the paper meeting research standards in the discipline?
    • Is the paper presenting its objectives?
    • 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 reviewer is also suggested to present comments to the paper and to recommend necessary and optional changes. In the final evaluation, the reviewer is asked to give an opinion if the article should be accepted, accepted after minor changes, reviewed again after major changes, or rejected.

    List of Reviewers

    Following the requirement of the local policy for higher education the Polish Political Science Yearbook publishes the List of Reviewers yearly since 2016. It acknowledges all scholars who contributed to the assessment of submitted papers. However, the list does not enable assigning reviewers to specific papers to avoid ethical infringements.

    The Polish Political Science Yearbook’s Review Policy protects the highest standard of papers published in the journal. We select our Reviewers for their research expertise and academic experience. Since 2016, more than 70% of them represent foreign institutions, including the most respected universities or research centres, e.g., Catholic University of Louvain, Charles University, European University Institute in Florence, Freie Universität Berlin, Leiden University, London School of Economics and Political Science, Moscow State University, New York University, Oklahoma State University, St. Francis Xavier University, Universite Paris 1 – Pantheon-Sorbonne, University College London, University of Amsterdam, University of Baltimore, University of Copenhagen, University of Glasgow, University of Heidelberg, University of Lausanne, University of Leicester, University of London, University of Massachusetts, University of Oslo, University of Ottawa, University of Oxford, University of Rhode Island, University of the Witwatersrand, and Uppsala University.

    Ethical Principles

    General Information

    The Polish Political Science Yearbook 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 to meet these requirements.

    Authorship

    The Polish Political Science Yearbook prevents ghost-writing, guest authorship, and honorary authorship in academic research. All parties who have made a substantive contribution to the paper should be listed as authors and all supporting institutions should be presented in the footnote (the financial disclosure rule). Principal authorship, authorship order, and other publication credits should be based on the relative scientific or professional contributions of the individuals involved. Those who contributed to the work but do not meet the authorship criteria can be mentioned in the Acknowledgments section in the end of the paper.

    The principal author must be prepared to sign the copyright agreement on behalf of all the authors.

    The author delivers a signed copyright agreement and authorship declaration no later than after the paper’s initial acceptance.

    Ethical Standards & Plagiarism Policy

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

    • Editors are expected to act in a balanced, objective, and fair way, without prejudice or discrimination on the 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 and authors 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 publication is identified; to maintain records of data associated with the manuscript, and to provide access to these data if requested.
    • The Editors will not accept a subsequent manuscript of the same author until the publication process has been completed for a previously submitted manuscript. Publication of the text in the journal is considered the completion of the process. In case of publishing several works of the same author, it can be done no more frequently than one paper per year for maximum two papers. Considering each following manuscript is individual, and usually entails several years embargo for publishing in the journal, dependently on a given country regulations, e.g., next publication possible in a next parametric period.
    • Submitting a manuscript in the Editorial System requires accepting the journal’s policy and ethical standards and complying with them at each stage of paper evaluation.
    • The publication in the Polish Political Science Yearbook is free of charge. The journal does not have article processing charges, editorial charges, or printing fees. The publishers and our donors cover all costs of publishing the PPSY. Authors, other individuals, or institutions may participate in publishing costs but it does not influence the editorial process and content assessment in any way.
    • 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 to initiate an investigation – all allegations are taken thoughtfully and treated in the same way, until a successful decision or conclusion is 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 Policy

    Review Process

    All papers and research reports published in the PPSY are double-blind peer reviewed by two independent experts in the given field. Their assessment focuses on standards of study design, applied methodologies, the value of findings, contribution to the discipline, innovative approaches, and presentation of results. In order to check the detailed questions for evaluating papers, download the PPSY review form by clicking here. 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 PPSY accepts papers written in English and meeting formal standards and essential requirements. If the article fulfils these criteria – which is verified by the Secretary of the Board – the respective Section Editor sends an anonymised manuscript to two independent reviewers. Typically, the review takes less than two months. However, in some cases, it may be extended up to three months. Receiving two positive reviews is the necessary condition to publish a paper in the PPSY. Received reviews are verified and processed by the Section Editor and, if they are consistent, sent to the Author as anonymised comments. If the reviews suggest inconsistent results, the Section Editor sends the paper to another reviewer. If the doubt remains, the paper is assessed collectively by a Section Editor under the advice of the Editorial Board. Authors required to revise their papers are provided with a month to present the final version of the paper. It should answer all comments mentioned by the reviewers. If required by the assessing experts, the paper is sent for another review verifying the work’s revisions and progress. Rejected papers can be resubmitted to the PPSY after essential edition, not earlier than six months after the rejection. Authors who receive the positive decision are asked for signing the copyright agreement.

    Instructions for Reviewers

    The Polish Political Science Yearbook uses the standardised procedure of paper's review. The assessment includes two stages: the initial review and the detailed review (see: the review form). The reviewer is asked to consider a general value of submitted paper, applied standards, and possible impact on the discipline.

    The initial review includes an overall evaluation of paper's contents, including following questions:

    • Is the paper meeting scientific standards?
    • Is the paper meeting research standards in the discipline?
    • Is the paper presenting its objectives?
    • 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 scientific standards?
    • Is the paper meeting research standards in the discipline?
    • Is the paper presenting its objectives?
    • 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 reviewer is also suggested to present comments to the paper and to recommend necessary and optional changes. In the final evaluation, the reviewer is asked to give an opinion if the article should be accepted, accepted after minor changes, reviewed again after major changes, or rejected.

    List of Reviewers

    Following the requirement of the local policy for higher education the Polish Political Science Yearbook publishes the List of Reviewers yearly since 2016. It acknowledges all scholars who contributed to the assessment of submitted papers. However, the list does not enable assigning reviewers to specific papers to avoid ethical infringements.

    The Polish Political Science Yearbook’s Review Policy protects the highest standard of papers published in the journal. We select our Reviewers for their research expertise and academic experience. Since 2016, more than 70% of them represent foreign institutions, including the most respected universities or research centres, e.g., Catholic University of Louvain, Charles University, European University Institute in Florence, Freie Universität Berlin, Leiden University, London School of Economics and Political Science, Moscow State University, New York University, Oklahoma State University, St. Francis Xavier University, Universite Paris 1 – Pantheon-Sorbonne, University College London, University of Amsterdam, University of Baltimore, University of Copenhagen, University of Glasgow, University of Heidelberg, University of Lausanne, University of Leicester, University of London, University of Massachusetts, University of Oslo, University of Ottawa, University of Oxford, University of Rhode Island, University of the Witwatersrand, and Uppsala University.

    Ethical Principles

    General Information

    The Polish Political Science Yearbook 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 to meet these requirements.

    Authorship

    The Polish Political Science Yearbook prevents ghost-writing, guest authorship, and honorary authorship in academic research. All parties who have made a substantive contribution to the paper should be listed as authors and all supporting institutions should be presented in the footnote (the financial disclosure rule). Principal authorship, authorship order, and other publication credits should be based on the relative scientific or professional contributions of the individuals involved. Those who contributed to the work but do not meet the authorship criteria can be mentioned in the Acknowledgments section in the end of the paper.

    The principal author must be prepared to sign the copyright agreement on behalf of all the authors.

    The author delivers a signed copyright agreement and authorship declaration no later than after the paper’s initial acceptance.

    Ethical Standards & Plagiarism Policy

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

    • Editors are expected to act in a balanced, objective, and fair way, without prejudice or discrimination on the 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 and authors 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 publication is identified; to maintain records of data associated with the manuscript, and to provide access to these data if requested.
    • The Editors will not accept a subsequent manuscript of the same author until the publication process has been completed for a previously submitted manuscript. Publication of the text in the journal is considered the completion of the process. In case of publishing several works of the same author, it can be done no more frequently than one paper per year for maximum two papers. Considering each following manuscript is individual, and usually entails several years embargo for publishing in the journal, dependently on a given country regulations, e.g., next publication possible in a next parametric period.
    • Submitting a manuscript in the Editorial System requires accepting the journal’s policy and ethical standards and complying with them at each stage of paper evaluation.
    • The publication in the Polish Political Science Yearbook is free of charge. The journal does not have article processing charges, editorial charges, or printing fees. The publishers and our donors cover all costs of publishing the PPSY. Authors, other individuals, or institutions may participate in publishing costs but it does not influence the editorial process and content assessment in any way.
    • 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 to initiate an investigation – all allegations are taken thoughtfully and treated in the same way, until a successful decision or conclusion is 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

    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.
