Peer Review Process

  1. Each manuscript is evaluated by at least two independent external referees.
  2. In case of manuscripts written in a foreign language at least one of the referees should be affiliated with an institution abroad other than the country the author originates from.
  3. The preferred way for reviewing the manuscripts is a model of double-blind review, i.e. the identities of the referees and the author(s) are not revealed to each other.
  4. In case when other ways of reviewing are adopted, the referee is obliged to sign a conflict of interests statement; conflict of interests is a situation in which the referee and the author: a) are in direct personal relationship (kinship, legal relationships, continuing disagreement); b) superior-subordinate relationship; c) direct scientific cooperation within the last two years before the referee report is written.
  5. The referee report ought to be written and conclude with a clear statement whether the manuscript should be accepted for publication or rejected.
  6. The identities of the referees concerning given publications/journal issues are not given; once a year a complete list of the names of all referees working for the journal is published.
  7. The referees are appointed by the editor-in-chief in consultation with members of the journal's editorial board. If the need arises, the editor-in-chief consults their opinion with appropriate members of the scientific community.
  8. The author of the manuscript is obliged to respond meritorically to all comments and suggestions listed in a referee report.
  9. Rejection criteria for articles submitted to Annales UMCS Sectio N Educatio Nova:
  • Non-compliance with the journal’s profile (scholarly works in the area of humanities: literature, cultural studies, linguistics, art history) or the thematic scope of the given issue;

  • Failure to adhere to the adopted editorial rules (see Editorial Guidelines);
  • Negative reviews: Two negative reviews result in automatic rejection of an article. In the case of a single negative review, another negative review results in article rejection; In particular cases the final decision on text rejection is made by the Editorial Board of the journal;
  • Ignoring reviewer’s recommendations.
