Peer Review Process


1. Editorial Board reviews submissions for compliance with the profile of the journal and appoints reviewers. Editors may consult the Advisory Board on their decisions. Editors and any editorial staff of the journal treat received manuscripts for review as confidential documents and do not disclose any information about submitted manuscripts to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher. Manuscripts considered by the Editors to be inappropriate for Anglica Wratislaviensia may be declined without review. Editors of Anglica Wratislaviensia who submit their manuscripts for publication in the journal are subjected to the publishing procedures described above. The reviewers cannot have their work published in the same volume as the one containing the paper/s they have evaluated.

2. All articles, including review articles, are sent to two external reviewers, preferably one from Poland and one from abroad. Reviews are prepared in compliance with the requirements of the double-blind peer review model. Editorial Assistants remove the authors’ names and metadata. Reviews have a written form and use the English language. The review template includes a questionnaire as well as an open section where the reviewer may make further suggestions. The review is concluded with a clear statement of acceptance or rejection.
3. Conflicting opinions. If two conflicting opinions are issued by reviewers, the article is declined. However, its author may apply to the Board of Editors to have the article reviewed by a third referee. His / her opinion is decisive.

4. Articles accepted for publication are sent to the authors who introduce necessary changes. Any difference of opinion is resolved by the Editorial Board which is entitled to the final decision. The recommendations of reviewers are advisory to the Editors, who accept full responsibility for decisions about manuscripts. The author may be asked to write a reply to the reviewer’s comments.

5. Revised Manuscripts. When a revision is requested after peer review, the authors must return the revised manuscript promptly: 14 days is allotted for minor revisions of Articles, 30 days for major revisions of Articles. After the allotted time, a revised manuscript will be handled as a new submission and will be given a new receipt date.

6. Articles accepted for publication are sent to language editors and technical editors at the University Publisher’s.

7. The list of reviewers is published on the periodical’s homepage six months after publication.
