Reviewing procedure

The article is subject to a review in consistence with the "double blind review process". 

Articles submitted to the Journal of Geography, Politics and Society are peer-reviewed by two independent reviewers. The reviewers and the authors do not know each other’s identity, in consistence with the "double blind review process". The Reviewer and the Author must not come from the same academic establishment. An article is published after two positive reviews. In case of one positive and one negative review, at the article Author’s request, the editors allow a possibility of appointing a third reviewer, whose opinion will be conclusive.

In case of controversial content of the article, the editors allow publishing the article in the Author’s version, but they reserve a right to include a comment.

Reliability of science is one of its qualitative foundations. Readers should be guaranteed that authors of publications present the results of their work in a clear, reliable and honest manner regardless of the fact whether they are the direct authors of publication or they took benefit of specialized help (natural or legal person). Openness of information on any party contributing to preparation of a publication (content related, material, financial, etc. input) is proof of ethical attitude of a research worker and of high editorial standards and that is an indication of both good practice and social responsibility.

The editorial office reserves the right to make technical corrections without discussing them with the Authors, unless the Author of the article explicitly indicates that all alterations must be consulted with him/her. The final decision about accepting the article for publication is taken by the Scientific Editor (in the case of a subject issue) or the Editor-in-chief (in the case of a regular issue).
