Author Guidelines

Submission process

When submitting your manuscript, please make sure it was created using the article template.

  • In case of any problems with submitting an article, please use the Manual for the Author (available soon) or contact the managing editor
  • The author who submits an article is a corresponding author
  • While submitting an article, please include all co-authors
  • The names of the corresponding author and co-authors are hidden from reviewers
  • Once the article is submitted and then accepted by the editorial committee, reviewers are appointed; if the article receives two positive opinions, the author is informed about the reviewing process being successfully completed
  • Then the author should read the reviews and suggest the final version which is presented to the reviewers
  • If the final version is accepted by the reviewers, its content is checked by technical editor and proofread by a native speaker
  • The adjustments are suggested to the author
  • Once the adjustments are accepted, the article is published

If one review is negative and the other positive, the editorial committee can either have it read by the third reviewer or turn the article down.

If the final version receives negative reviews, the author is obliged to correct the article considering reviewers earlier suggestions.

Two independent reviewers outside the University of Economics and Business in Wroclaw make a review with respect to the following rules:

  • The author and reviewers do not know their respective identities (double-blind review process)
  • The review is written on the review form
  • Article assessment is expressed in points
  • If the article can be published in the journal the review should be unambiguous
  • The Editorial Committee decides if an article is to be published in a given issue of the journal.

The submitted article is reviewed with regard to its: originality of the problem/methods, applied research methods, substantive level, degree of compliance of research purpose, selection and use of subject literature, clarity of disquisition (language, quotations, tables, figures), relevance of a research problem, application value.

A review shall be regarded as negative if at least one of the following three criteria of the article assessment fails:

  • Test methods used

Manuscript preparation
