Article submission guidelines

The procedure of reviewing the articles submitted to the JJP is consistent with the directives of the Ministry of Higher Education and Science of the Republic of Poland.

By submitting articles, the authors agree to the reviewing procedure. Submitted articles are evaluated by the editors from the formal point of view and then distributed to reviewers. The  JJP follows the ‘double-blind review’ procedure, in which the reviewers and authors anonymous throughout the entire process. Each submitted paper is sent to one reviewer specialising in the subject of the paper. The authors are informed about the result of the reviewing procedure.
