Peer Review Process

Every manuscript submitted to the Editorial Board of the journal is evaluated by two reviewers. The reviewers are selected with reference to the topic of the contribution and their own experience. The process of selecting the reviewers involves consultations with members of the Editorial Board. Attempts are made to find reviewers representing different Lithuanian universities and colleges. When no funding is available for reviewing; Lithuanian researchers in the field of the social sciences are requested to review regular contributions. When special issues of selected conference papers are published; the contributions are reviewed by the members of conference scientific committee.   The final decision is made upon a majority of votes. With reference to every manuscript; the reviewers evaluate the research problem; the extent to which it has been analysed;  definition of the aim; research methodology; relevance of research methods; relevance of conclusions with reference to the title; research problem; results of theoretical and empirical research; relevance of references. If there is discrepancy in the evaluations of two reviewers; the third reviewer  is invited. Authors receive anonymous feedback on their manuscripts and use it for revisions (if they are necessary).

Members of the Editorial Board are responsible for reviewing individual manuscripts and editing thematic issues of the journal. They take part in the Editorial Board meetings to discuss the contents of the forthcoming issues; accepted and rejected articles.
