(Studies in Law on Religion)


The editorial board of Studia z Prawa Wyznaniowego [Studies in Law on Religion] along with the periodical's Scientific Council performs a preliminary assessment of submitted material for compliance with the desired profile and the basic requirements with regard to the research and content quality.

Materials for publication in the subsequent issues are examined by two reviewers who have the status of independent researchers and whose affiliation is different from that of the author's and editor-in-chief's of Studia z Prawa Wyznaniowego. No reviewers are appointed from among the members of the Scientific Council or the editorial board of the periodical. 

In the case of submitting articles in a foreign language, their assessment is entrusted to a reviewer who is affiliated with a foreign research institution (other than the author's affiliation).

When forwarding the material for review, the editor observes the policy of double anonymity (the so-called “double-blind review” whereby the authors and reviewers do not know each other).

Reviews are made in writing and contain unambiguous recommendations of accepting or rejecting the material submitted for publication.

When assessing the material submitted for publication, the following aspects are given priority:

- originality;

- content value;

- sources;

- cited literature and case-law;

- research quality.
