Guide for Authors

The Pressburg Economic Review (PER) only accepts original research papers in English that have not been previously published nor are under review in other academic journals.

By submitting papers for publication, authors automatically agree to assign the copyright.

PER uses a double-blind review process to ensure the quality of contributions. It means that reviewers and the identity of the reviewer and author are obscured throughout the assessment process and vice versa.

PER editors will remove the authors ‘ names and associations to ensure that the manuscript is ready for double-blind peer review. However, authors could take further, non-mandatory steps to ensure that their manuscripts are appropriately prepared for reviewing in a way that does not establish their identity:

  • Remove any information from file names and document properties that may reveal your identity;
  • Use a third party to refer to works by previous authors, e.g., where applicable, remove such phrases as “we have proved before” and replace them with “… it was proved that” [Anonymous, 2016] “;
  • To ensure that the identity of the author is not revealed also in the reference list, do the following: “[Anonymous, 2016]” Details removed for the double-blind review process;
  • Contributions published by the author can be referred to in the text as follows: “‘[Anonymous, 2016]”.
  • It is not necessary to remove important self-citations, but make sure to limit to them only with papers relevant to the reviewers of the submitted paper;
  • Make sure that the numbers do not include any identifier related to affiliation;
  • Remove references to funding sources;
  • Remove acknowledgments.

The two-stage review process usually takes from 6 to 8 weeks. The manuscript may be returned to the author to avoid unnecessary delays. This decision is made in the author’s best interest to avoid wasting valuable time. The Editorial Board may reject a paper and return it to the author without being submitted to the reviewer, or before the full review, if the editors conclude that the manuscript is not suitable for the journal, especially if the paper is inconsistent with the journal’s objectives and scope or does not follow the style requirements presented in the author guidelines.

PER release schedule:

№1 – March; №2 – September;

PER occasionally organizes special issues to highlight new directions of research once a year.

Plagiarism policy

Plagiarism and its types

Plagiarism is when someone else‘s ideas, findings, methods, or words are used in the paper with or without consent without appropriate citation or reference to the original author and source. Plagiarism is defined as the copying of large sections of a manuscript from previously published sources. Self-plagiarism occurs when an author uses a large part of his own previously published work without properly citing it. Self-plagiarism can take many forms, from publishing the same content in multiple journals to editing a previously published article with new data.

Types of plagiarism

The Pressburg Economic Review is considering the following types of plagiarism:

  1. Using the same material from another source without editing the text, grammar or concept is considered complete plagiarism. Intentionally using sections of another author’s paper;
  2. Using text copied from the Internet;
  3. Using elements of another author’s article such as figures, equations, illustrations, tables, photographs, which are not commonly known, or intentional use of whole sentences without appropriate reference;
  4. If the article submitted to the Pressburg Economic Review was previously published in another language, authors must mention the title, date of the original publication, and journal, as well as the copyright notice. The chief editor may accept such a translated publication to draw the attention of a larger audience;
  5. If the author copies content from another paper, he must also include it in the references. Otherwise, the author must completely rewrite the phrase and use his own language;
  6. Self-plagiarism is defined as using large parts of one’s own copyrighted work without citing the original source. The whole self-plagiarism occurs when an author republishes a previously published paper of the same author in a new journal without translation. Publications based on the author’s own copyrighted work (for example, listed in the conference proceedings), where the exact reference to the previous publication is given, is not considered self-plagiarism. Such reuse of the content does not necessitate the use of citation marks to define reused text but does require citation of the source.


Anti-Plagiarism measures

The Pressburg Economic Review is strongly opposed to any act of plagiarism in any form. It is anticipated that the manuscript submitted by the author(s) to the Pressburg Economic Review is an original and unpublished paper that is not under review elsewhere. The Pressburg Economic Review does not accept plagiarism, including the duplicate publication of the author’s own work (s) in the same language, in general, or in part, without appropriate citation.

Anti-plagiarism software is used to cross-checked for plagiarism all articles submitted to the Pressburg Economic Review. If plagiarism is detected at any stage of the article creation process, the chief editor will notify the authors and ask them to rewrite the content or cite the sources from which the content was copied.

If plagiarism is identified after publishing a paper in the Pressburg Economic Review, the journal will conduct a preliminary investigation. The Pressburg Economic Review will contact the Copyright Institute and funding agencies if plagiarism is detected. If unethical behavior is discovered, the Pressburg Economic Review will issue a statement mentioning the plagiarism and providing proper references to plagiarism sections of the material, which will be linked online to and from the original article. The article containing plagiarism will also be clearly marked on each page of the PDF paper. Depending on the extent of plagiarism, the paper can also be formally withdrawn.
