Peer review process

(These peer review rules are effective since January 2007)
The editor of E-Logos sends copies of an author's work to reviewers (researchers or scholars who are experts in the field) by e-mail. There are two reviewers for a given paper, who are not from the same institution as author of the reviewed paper and are not members of editorial board. These reviewers each return an evaluation of the work to the editor, including noting weaknesses or problems along with suggestions for improvement. Reviewers' evaluations usually include an explicit recommendation of what to do with the manuscript or proposal, chosen from a following list: a) Accept, b) Reject, encourage revision and invite resubmission, c) Reject. The referees' negative comments and suggestions are eventually send to the author. The editor, usually familiar with the field of the manuscript then evaluates the referees' comments, her or his own opinion of the manuscript, and the context of the scope of the E-Logos journal, before passing a decision back to the author, usually with the referees' negative comments and suggestions. Reviewers remain anonymous to the authors.
