DOUBLE EXTERNAL BLIND REVIEW FOR PEDAGOGICAL ALMANAC JOURNAL (PROCEDURE)

 

INDEXATION AND REFERENCING

Pedagogical almanac journal has been in publication since 1993 and has been prepared for citation indexing in SCOPUS. For this reason, the first stage of the procedure for acceptance of a certain article for publication is the evaluation and the possible returning of the paper for additional adjustment of the technical parameters of the presented manuscript (length, style, data citation principles, font, transliteration of the Cyrillic alphabet in the Bibliography, etc.) according to the technical requirements of the journal.

 

PROCEDURE FOR EXTERNAL DOUBLE-BLIND PEER REVIEW

The International Editorial Board has enrolled prominent scientists in the field of pedagogical sciences for the implementation of external double-blind peer review of each received paper. The Editor-in-chief erases the name of the author from the text of the paper and from the file properties and consigns the received paper to two of the reviewers. During the evaluation process, they fill in a special review form and in its final part they mark their categorical opinion whether the received manuscript should be rejected or accepted (without corrections, with some necessary emendation and without second review, or second review after the recommended necessary corrections are done). In case one of the two reviewers rejects the paper, it should be consigned for evaluation to an arbitrator whose positive evaluation is a necessary condition for continuation of the procedure.

After the submission of the review forms to the International Editorial Board the Editor-in-chief informs the author of the opinion of the reviewers and, if necessary, provides the final part of the review to the author (Recommendations and overall evaluation) in order to make the needed emendations. The author should return the edited article within two weeks.

The name and the affiliation of the author are added to the text, the pre-press and page data setting is done and the author receives the article to authorize it. This is the last chance for making (some slight) corrections.

The International Editorial Board decides on the final acceptance of the articles for publication. The editors have the right to reject some of the reviewed materials that do not conform to the purpose of the journal and do not meet the above-mentioned criteria.
