Reviewing procedures and list of reviewers

Evaluation and review procedures

Manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has not been already published, that the submission has been approved by all of the authors and by the institution where the work was carried out and that all contributors are bylined in the article.

The Journal follows a double-blind review procedure, with each article subjected to two independent reviews. The reviewers are chosen from external institutions (listed below) and/or the extended PAM Editorial and Advisory Boards (in the latter case only one reviewer can be a member of the extended Board). An effort is made to select reviewers for their research specialization. The reviewer evaluates manuscripts based on topic significance and relevance, originality of research, methodology, quality, and clarity of the presentation. Timeliness and scholarly integrity are valued traits of all reviewers for PAM. Conflicts of interests should be reported to the Editor in Chief.

Reviewers are asked to complete reviews in an interactive pdf file and return it, by e-mail, within a 21-day period or inform the Journal’s Secretary about difficulties with meeting the deadline. Reviewers are welcome to mark-up the manuscript or write-up their comments separately if they consider it essential. If a reviewer does not feel competent to evaluate the paper, s/he is kindly requested to indicate an alternative reviewer.

Reviewers will recommend to the editors whether to accept a paper substantially as is, with modifications, return for rewriting and another round of reviews, or to reject it altogether. Reviewers can call for another round of reviews, if there are major changes suggested. If two reviewers disagree fundamentally, a third reviewer is invited to evaluate the manuscript. Contributing authors receive a comprehensive review including the remarks of both external reviewers plus editorial and language editing suggestions. The final decision regarding acceptance is always with the editors.

The average time for completing the review process is from 4 to 6 weeks.
