Two independent reviewers from outside the unit are appointed for the evaluation of each manuscript.
At least one of the reviewers is affiliated with an institution of a country other than that/those of the author/authors of the manuscript.
The author/authors and reviewers do not know their identities (so-called "double-blind review process").
Manuscripts are not passed reviewers, who are in the personal or professional relationships with the author/authors.
Referee reports are prepared in written form with a final conclusion containing the decision about acceptance or rejection of the manuscript. In the case of contradictory reviews, the manuscript is given to a third independent reviewer. The final decision on publishing is made by the Editorial Board and Editor in Chief.
The rules for acceptance or rejection of the manuscript are included in Referee Report presented at the website of the Journal.
The names of reviewers of individual publications are not revealed; the list of reviewers is published at the end of each year at the website of the Journal.
This procedure is consistent with the guidelines of the Ministry of Education included in the leaflet "Dobre praktyki w procedurach recenzyjnych w nauce" (Good practices in reviewing procedures in science), Warsaw 2011.
