Peer Review


Peer review is the independent assessment of your research paper by experts in your field. Its purpose is to evaluate the manuscript’s quality and suitability for publication. Peer review is vitally important for upholding the high standards of scholarly communications, for maintaining the quality of journal, and for support of the researchers who’ve authored the papers.


This journal uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity. To help with this preparation please ensure the following when submitting to Historia i Świat: Submit the Title Page containing the Authors details and Blinded Manuscript with no author details as 2 separate files.

Use the third person to refer to work the Authors have previously undertaken, e.g. replace any phrases like “as we have shown before” with “… has been shown before [Anonymous, 2007]” .
