Reviewing procedure

1. The editorial board of Materiały i Sprawozdania Rzeszowskiego Ośrodka Archeologicznego shall ensure the proper substansive level of the texts, good quality and appropriate choice of the diagrams.
2. All the received articles are initially assessed and evaluated in order to to check if they are compliant with the profile of the journal and if they meet all the requirements provided in the ‘Information for the authors’. If the articles fail to comply with the profile or do not meet the requirements provided in the ‘Information for the authors’ they are returned to their authors together with a letter of explanation.
3. All the published papers are double-bind reviewed ( both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process.).
4. The assessment is made with the use of review template.
5. Every article is assessed by two external reviewers independent of the scientific department afiliated by the author of the article. The names of the reviewers are published on the editorial page of each volume and on the editorial website.
6. Each review is summed up with a clear conclusion stating either about the authorisation for printing (either as it stands or after the changes), or the rejection of the article.
7. The authors of the articles are required to include the reviewers’ remarks or to explain the rejection of the remarks. In case of divergent reviews the aricle may be processed for publication only if it received positive opinion from the third reviewer. In case when both reviewers give their negative opinion, the editorial may reject the article from publication
