The editors accept the submitted papers if they are
consistent with both the profile of the journal as well as the requirements set
out in the Information for Authors. The authors of the papers must also follow
the guidelines specified in the Code of Publishing Ethics in the
quarterly “Studia z Polityki Publicznej/Public Policy Studies.”
The editorial team requires that the articles be
developed on the appropriate level in terms of readability, accompanied by
abstracts and keywords.
Only original articles are accepted, i.e., papers not
submitted or not published in a scientific publication.
The author of the paper is obliged to sign an
appropriate statement on the originality of the work.
External review is prepared by two reviewers in the
double-blind peer review process, i.e., after the information about the author’s
identity has been removed. The review form is applied.
If the content of the manuscript allows for the
identification of the author, the reviewer signs a declaration of no conflict
of interest or resigns from preparing a review. Such a conflict is considered
to occur between the reviewer and the author in the case of direct personal
relations, professional subordination, or direct professional or scientific
cooperation in the last two years preceding the year of the manuscript
The author receives the reviews for consultation (yet
without knowing the identity of the reviewers). They are obliged to respond to
the comments presented.
At the end of each year, the journal publishes a list
of scientific reviewers cooperating with the Editorial Board. The names of the
reviewers of individual articles are not disclosed.

The final decision on accepting the manuscripts of the
papers for publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief of the quarterly after
reading the reviews’ content. This decision results from the adopted
assumptions concerning the shape and scientific profile of the journal, its
publication capabilities, publishing ethics, and legal regulations, including
those concerning copyright protection and other provisions of general law.
In the case of receipt of positive reviews and a
decision on consent to publish the paper in the quarterly, the author(s) of the
article are obliged to provide and sign the completed Copyright/Authorship
Statement (example in PDF format - w języku polskim / in English) that will be issued by the Editorial Office.
