3. Based on the opinions of scientific reviewers, the editor-in-chief (or executive editor) and an issue editor(s) make a decision whether to accept a paper as it is, send it to the author(s) for minor or major revisions or reject it. Moreover, in the decision making process the opinions of a statistical editor and a language editor are taken into account. Template of review sheet is here.

Budapest Open Access Initiative

 Journal is accepted in response to the growing demand to make research free and available to anyone with a computer and an internet connection, a diverse coalition has issued new guidelines that could usher in huge advances in the sciences, medicine, and health.

The recommendations were developed by leaders of the Open Access movement, which has worked for the past decade to provide the public with unrestricted, free access to scholarly research—much of which is publicly funded. Making the research publicly available to everyone—free of charge and without most copyright and licensing restrictions—will accelerate scientific research efforts and allow authors to reach a larger number of readers.

The recommendations are the result of a meeting organized by the Open Society Foundations to mark the tenth anniversary of Budapest Open Access Initiative, which first defined Open Access. The recommendations include the development of Open Access policies in institutions of higher education and in funding agencies, the open licensing of scholarly works, the development of infrastructure such as Open Access repositories and creating standards of professional conduct for Open Access publishing. The recommendations also establish a new goal of achieving Open Access as the default method for distributing new peer-reviewed research in every field and in every country within ten years’ time.

Translations of the recommendations have already been made in several languages, with more to follow. 

For more on the recommendations, please see the press release as well as a blog post by Peter Suber which provides additional background on the Open Access movement.

Requirements for authors

Ladies and Gentleman

We would like to invite you to send copyright articles to the “Journal of Quality in Sport”. This journal has been created of Annual International Scientific Conference "Quality in Sport", organized by the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń (Faculty of Economic Sciences and Management). The journal remains interdisciplinary, where each article is written on the basis of sport issues as well as ways of achieving quality in sport. Due to the fact that founders of the journal belong to the community of scientists representing economic sciences, leading theme tends to be managerial and economical. However, taking into account that achieving quality in sport depends also on research in other fields of sciences, the Scientific Committee, invites you also to write in fields of law, medicine, pedagogy and psychology.
