Peer Review Process

In order to publish an academic text in Księgarnia Akademicka Publishing, it is necessary to for it to be accepted in the two-stage academic review. The manuscript is first submitted for internal review, consisting in the evaluation of the Publishing Director and the editorial team during the editorial board meeting. After taking into account the results of this stage and consulting experts, if necessary, the Publishing Director takes the decision regarding the publication of the manuscript.

If the first reviewers approve the text, it is then submitted for external review, which consists in evaluation by two independent experts in a given field. In this regard, different peer-review models are adopted – from double-blind review, blind review to peer review. If necessary, the Publisher will help in finding a suitable reviewer. The entire review procedure is carried out following the Publisher’s ethical principles (see, more broadly, Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement).
