Peer Review Process

With a view to providing unbiased evaluation, articles are sent to two independent reviewers in accordance with a double-blind review. Based on the evaluations received from reviewers the editorial board decides whether the article should be accepted for publishing, rejected or returned to the author for revision.

After the reception of the reviewers’ comments, the author is obliged to respond within a time period specified by the editorial board. Failure to meet a specified deadline will be deemed as resignation from publication.

The procedures governing the review process of articles submitted for publication in Copernican Journal of Finance & Accounting meets the guidelines of the Announcement of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education from 2 June 2015 on the criteria and evaluation of scientific journals. The procedure of the review process considers the following rules:

- at least two independent reviewers representing a scientific unit other than the one affiliated with the author are appointed to evaluate the submitted article,

- all information identifying the author (authors) and reviewers is removed and the principles of a double-blind review process are followed; in other cases the reviewer signs a declaration on the non-occurrence of a conflict of interest; a conflict of interest is defined here as any direct personal relationship holding between the reviewer and the author (in particular, such relationships as kinship of the second degree, or marriage), relationships resulting from professional dependence or from any scientific cooperation conducted within two years preceding the year in which the review was made,

- a written review explicitly states the conditions on which an article should be accepted for publication or informs of rejection,

- the qualification criteria and a review form are available at the journal’s website (download the review form here),
