Peer review process

Manuscripts received by the editors undergo double-blind reviewing. Reviewers are given manuscripts which contain no reference to the authors' surname(s), and the authors have no access to the identities of the reviewers.

The review should include the following issues:

  • Does the article manifest a scientific approach and does it correspond to the profile domain of the publication?
  • Do the results presented display verifiable originality?
  • How logical is the material in the article?
  • Is the usage of terminology accurate?
  • Is the list of sources set up correctly?
  • Are the conclusions of the article consistent with the content?

The conclusion about the possibility of publishing the manuscript in the publication:
- the article is recommended for publication: "without comments", "with minor comments (without re-reviewing)", "with significant comments (there is a need for re-reviewing)";
- The article is not recommended for publication.

Reviews are verified in accordance with the established patterns in the institution where the reviewer works.
With respect to rejected articles, the editorial office sends a substantiated communication of rejection to the author. The text of the unfavourable review is sent to the author by e-mail or by regular mail.
An article which has not been recommended by a reviewer for publication shall not be accepted for re-examination.
The existence of a favourable review is not in itself sufficient to authorize the publication of the article. The final decision regarding the suitability of printing the article is taken by the editorial board.

After the editorial board decides on the admission of an article to the publication, the responsible secretary informs the author about it and indicates the estimated publication time. The original reviews are stored in the editorial office of  "Psychological Perspectives"
