For reviewers

Economic and Political Thought publication review procedure

  1. The Editorial Board appoints at least two independent reviewers, i.e. specialists who are not Lazarski University employees, to evaluate each publication.
  2. One of the two reviewers shall be an employee of a foreign research centre.
  3. The reviewing procedure is a so-called double-blind peer review process, i.e. follows a rule that an author and re viewers do not know their identity.
  4. Reviewers submit written declarations of non-existence of a conflict of interests in their relations with the authors of articles being reviewed.
  5. A review must be developed in writing and provide an unambiguous recommendation to accept a manuscript for publication or decline it.
  6. The above procedure and rules of reviewing are published on the Economic and Political Thought website.
  7. The names of reviewers of particular publications are not revealed. However, the name of the reviewer of each quarterly issue is publicised.


The above procedures and reviewing principles conform to the directives of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education.

Ethical standards for reviewers

All reviewed works should be treated as confidential documents. They cannot be shown to or discussed with third parties who are not authorised members of the Editorial Board.

All reviews are made anonymously; neither does the Editor reveal information on authors to reviewers.

Objectivity standards 
Reviews should be objective. Derogatory personal remarks are inappropriate. Reviewers should clearly express their opinions and provide adequate arguments. All doubts as well as critical and polemical comments should be included in the review.

Conflict of interests and its disclosure
Confidential information and ideas arising as a result of a review must be kept secret and cannot be used for personal benefits. Reviewers should not review works of authors if there is a conflict of interests resulting from their close relationship.
