Peer Review Process
All articles are examinated by the editor upon receipt. Afterwards the authors are usually asked to correct or change the article. After the articles have been corrected they are sent to anonymous peer-review. The reviewers receive an article without the author’s name, and the author receives the review(s) without the reviewer’s names. If the reviews do not require the article to be corrected, the review will not be sent to the author. If the size of the text fails to comply with the provisions for publication, the author shall allow the text to be appropriately modified according to the judgment of the publisher. The article may be rejected for publication by the reviewers or by the editors.
Geografski vestnik is published twice a year (two issues per volume).
