AJMP Publishing procedure
All submitted papers undergo a double-blind review, where neither the author nor the reviewers know each other’s names. The procedure itself seeks to answer several questions:
- How does the article contribute to a field or discipline?
- Which elements are particularly valuable to readers?
- How does the author’s methodology fit into the study?
- What is the quality of presented bibliographical entries?
- Does the article qualify for publishing without any further corrections?
- Does the article qualify for publishing with minor corrections? If so, what corrections are necessary?
- Does the article qualify for publishing with major corrections? If so, what corrections are necessary?
- Does the article not qualify for publishing? Please justify your opinion.
