Manuscript Review Process and Review Policy
Double-blind review is used by this journal. It means that both the reviewer and author are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process.
Manuscripts submitted first go through an initial screening by the editorial team.
The editor-in-chief resp. the editorial board first tests several aspects of the scope of the subject, its apparent scientific validity, its current significance, its relation to the previous publication, the appropriate references, and its length.
We have a strong sense of responsibility to support the scientific community in all areas of research and publishing ethics. All new submissions to our journal are automatically screened by using anti-plagiarism control software.
After having cleared the initial screening, the manuscript is sent to one or more peer reviewers.
The reviewers are professionals selected from the field and subfield of Business, Economics, Management and Quantitative Methods to fit the profile of the scientific journal.
The submitted manuscript will be sent to the reviewer(s) without the name and affiliation of the authors. Reviewers will remain anonymous to the author(s) throughout the evaluation process.
The Editorial Board ensures that reviews are objective and meet high scientific standards. The selected peer reviewers have a good track record of producing high-quality reviews. If the objectivity or/and quality of the review does not meet the required standards, the Editorial Board will appoint additional reviewers.
The journal editor receives recommendations made by peer reviewers whether the manuscript should be accepted or rejected (with or without revisions).
The editor of the journal takes into account all the feedback received from the reviewers and makes a decision on whether to accept or reject the manuscript.
The following are the most common decisions:
- accept without any changes
- accept with minor revisions
- accept after major revisions
- reject the paper
Reviews should be completed within 4-6 weeks.
The Acta Oeconomica Universitatis Selye will not accept manuscripts to be reviewed if they are under consideration to be published in other scientific journals or manuscripts with contents that have been substantially published elsewhere.
As peer review is a crucial process of publishing, the final decision on whether to accept or reject the submitted manuscript is the responsibility of the journal’s editorial team and the Editor-in-Chief.
