9. Review process

All articles published in the Principles and Methods of Assessing the Working Environment quarterly are reviewed by two independent reviewers in accordance with the principle that the Reviewer and the Author do not know each other’s identity (“double blind” reviews). If one of the reviews is negative, the article is sent to a third reviewer. Two negative reviews result in the article being returned to the Author.

The editorial staff of the journal reserve the right to conduct linguistic editing of a submitted article. Once the editorial staff have finished editing the text, the article, together with the reviews, is sent to the Author, so that he/she can make the modifications and make additions as suggested by the reviewer(s) and the editorial staff and approve the article for print.

Authors are required to respond to reviewers’ comments and send the editors of the quarterly information about whether or not the comments have been acknowledged and implemented accordingly. The Author’s reasoning is communicated to a thematic editor, who decides if the Author’s explanations are sufficient. The decision to accept the article for publication is made by the editor-in-chief in cooperation with thematic editors. All reviews are kept at the editorial office of the Principles and Methods of Assessing the Working Environment quarterly.

The rules for reviewing contained in the “Reviewer sheet” and the list of reviewers cooperating with the editorial staff of the quarterly are available on the publisher’s website ( The list of reviewers cooperating with the Editorial Staff is also published in each issue of the quarterly.

Each Author receives a copy of the Principles and Methods of Assessing the Working Environment quarterly featuring his/her article.
