The editor assigns two reviewers for each article, according to the principle that the author and reviewers do not know their identity (double-blind review process). The principle also respected is that the reviewer can not come from the research center represented by the author of the article.

Each review is made in writing on a "review form" that includes an evaluation of the article and a reviewer's request for admission, conditional admission, or non-release of an article.

The reviewer considers:

  • images whether the subject of the article fits the context of the journal’s profile,
  • images if the scientific standard of the article corresponds with the generally accepted criteria of discourse within the discipline of social sciences,
  • images if the paper is original, revelatory and written in precise and clear language,
  • images if the arguments and conclusions are documented and embedded in the paradigm of empirical and theoretical social science’s methodology.

If the article does not meet these criteria, the editorial staff may not accept it for publication. At the end of the review process, the author of a submitted article is informed by email as to the the result and, if accepted, the estimated date of publication of their work. In case of one positive and one negative review, the editorial shall direct the article to a third reviewer.

The author is obligated to formulate a written answers to the review, which determines whether and to what extent he or she adapted to the comments from the reviewer or present arguments for not adhering to them.
