Peer Review Procedure

  • Two independent reviewers are appointed to assess each publication. In case of contradictory article reviews, the Editor may appoint a third reviewer.

  • The reviewers assess the paper in a custom review form, which allows the assessment to be complete and comparable. The review form is available for inspection on the journal's website.
  • The reviews are the product of a double blind review process, in which the identity of the author(s) is concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa.

  • The Editor sends the reviewers a digital version of the article, with all author data (i.e., first and last name, address, institutional affiliation).

  • The Editor sends the author(s) the reviews with all reviewer data removed and a decision:
    • Accept for Publication in the Submitted Version,
    • Accept For Publication once changes requested in reviews are applied,
    • Rejected.
    AThe author should apply changes suggested by reviewers and editorial board within two weeks from receiving the reviews.

  • The list of reviewers who continuously cooperate with ""Problems of Social Policy"" is public and available on the Journal's website.
