The articles submitted for CULTURAL PERSPECTIVES will undergo four stages of peer-reviewing:
The articles submitted until July 15 are assessed by the technical editor in order to ensure that the articles comply with the editing standards. In case the articles do not meet these requirements, the authors are kindly asked to revise their manuscripts by September, 1.
After receiving confirmation of compliance with the editorial standards and being tested for plagiarism (using Plagiarism Detector software), all articles are submitted to a process of double-blind review. Each of the reviewers will send to the editors the following assessment chart and the recommendations for the article reviewed:
1. Theoretical background
2. The methodology/ approach used by the author and its inclusion into the theoretical background
3. Accuracy of the methodology adopted
4. Novelty brought by the empirical background
5. Originality of the empirical analysis
6. Clarity and accuracy of the paper
7. The relevance of the bibliographical references within the theoretical and empirical analyses
During the peer-reviewing process, neither the reviewers nor the authors are in contact at any time. All communication is mediated by the subject editor who collects the review charts from each reviewer, together with the comments made directly on the manuscript (if that is the case). Her role is to further submit these observations to the author(s) with recommendations to make all necessary changes.
The authors will be sent the above chart for their article and they will be notified by NOVEMBER, 1 as follows:
- The paper in its initial form has been accepted;
- The paper will be accepted if the author will take into account the reviewers’ recommendations;
- The paper will be accepted providing that all the assessment criteria are met;
- The paper has been rejected.
The authors who were given recommendations should send their final article by NOVEMBER, 15.
