1. Submitted manuscripts are reviewed in accordance with the recommendations of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education included in Good Practices of Academic Review Procedures (Polish title: Dobre praktyki w procedurach recenzyjnych w nauce), which may be accessed on the Ministry’s website.
  2. The manuscripts submitted to Insurance Review that have been initially approved by Editors are sent for a review by experts in a given field.
  3. Reviewed manuscripts are evaluated by two independent of authors reviewers ( i.e. not affiliated with the same institution as the author) in a double-blind review process, which means that both the other reviewer and author(s) identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa.
  4. Each manuscript is reviewed by at least one third-party reviewer who is not a member of Insurance Review’s Programme Board or the Editorial Team.
  5. The reviewers assess the manuscript for its compliance with the criteria included in the review form. Based on this assessment, the reviewers decide on the further course of action:
    1. the manuscript is accepted for publication in the unaltered version,
    2. the manuscript is accepted for publication subject to the author(s) acceptance of changes and suggestions made by the reviewers,
    3. the manuscript is returned to the author(s) for a re-write and will be re-submitted for a review,
    4. the manuscript is rejected.
  6. If the reviewers express conflicting opinions on a manuscript, the Editorial Team appoints the third reviewer (also in compliance with the requirements of a double-blind review) who resolves how to proceed with the submission.
  7. Authors receive an anonymous written review.
  8. The list of reviewers is published annually after the notification of the last issue in a given year, on the Insurance Review’s website.
