Peer review

The editors of the Journal of Lviv Polytechnic National University, Series of Economics and Management Issues support the world standards of transparency of the review process, therefore this publication practices a double "blind" review of manuscripts.

Articles submitted to the Journal are immediately sent to the review by two independent experts. The reviewer is acquainted with the annotation of the article, after which he agrees or refuses to review the given material. In the event of a failure within a few days, another reviewer is appointed.

In a three-month period reviewers review the material and evaluate its scientific level by completing the "Review Form", which the editorial staff retains in the future.

In the submitted form, reviewers point out their comments and download files with corrections or materials that can be used to refine the article. After filling out the main "Review Forms", experts choose one of the suggested recommendations:

  • Accept the article's manuscript - the submission is ready for publication and is accepted unchanged
  • It is necessary to correct - it is accepted, if the author will take into account the given comments
  • Return to review - the article's manuscript will be accepted or rejected after refinement and re-review.
  • Send to another edition - the subject is suitable for another edition
  • Reject the manuscript of the article - the submitted material does not meet the requirements of the publication
  • See comments - selected in the event that none of the previous recommendations is met

After completing the review process, all relevant information is sent to the author. During the week, the author finishes the article and send a new version. If after this period the article is not returned (or the delay has not been reported to the editor) - the manuscript will be removed and deleted.
