For reviewers

Each submission first undergoes an editorial review, i.e. an assessment by at least two members of the editorial board depending on the topic of the manuscript. If the topic is appropriate and of sufficient quality, it is sent for peer review. All members of the editorial board have the manuscripts at their disposal for any comments.

At least two independent reviewers assess the article sent in MS Word or a preview PDF file including all supplementary materials (figures/tables) in terms of the originality of the work, the professional level, argumentation and language. The reviewers also focus on the accuracy of the abstract and keywords, the listed bibliography, the quality of illustrations and their relevance and other aspects. The reviewer submits a review form (available for download below) – all objections and recommendations are listed in detail within the form or as comments directly in the manuscript.

Based on the reviewers’ and the editors’ comments and objections, the author of the submission is then requested to revise their manuscript. Along with the revised manuscript, the author also submits their “response to the reviewer’s comments” which briefly states their response to the individual comments by the reviewers (and editors) in the following form: revised / revised, but… / not revised because…

The editors will review the revised manuscript; if there are any disputed issues, they may request cooperation with the reviewers and other members of the editorial board again. The accepted paper is sent for language proofreading by a native speaker. If the reviewers do not recommend a manuscript for publication in the Přehled výzkumů journal, it is excluded from further consideration.
