Review procedure (valid from 2012 r.)

Adopted by “The Studies of Warmia” the rules for reviewing scientific publications are in line with the guidelines of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education:

  1. Each publication (article, dissertation) review two independent reviewers outside the unit to which the author of the publication is affiliated, and from outside the UWM in Olsztyn.
  2. Each foreign language publication is reviewed by a reviewer who is affiliated with a foreign institution other than the nationality of the author of the work..
  3. The review procedure always takes into account the requirement of the so-called double-blind review process (the author and reviewers do not know their identity).
  4. In special cases, the reviewer signs a declaration of non-conflict of interest, which may be expressed in relations between the reviewer and the author of the publication:
    1. direct or personal relationships (kinship, legal relationships, conflict, etc.);
    2. professional dependence;
    3. direct scientific cooperation during the last two years preceding the preparation of the review;
  5. The reviewer completes the recruiting form given by the editors.

 

The main criteria for the approval of articles for the review procedure:

  1. The subject of the article must be consistent with the journal's profile (the editorial office accepts only dissertations in the fields of philosophy, theology, family sciences, law and history).
  2. The article must be well prepared from the formal point of view (logical structure, scientific language, summaries and keywords, scientific apparatus, terminology)..
  3. The author has to refer to a specific scientific problem in the article (recapitulation of the textbook knowledge on a given topic is not sufficient).
  4. If the paper discusses known problems, the author should bring new aspects or points of view of the issues.
  5. If one of the reviews is unequivocally negative, the article is not subject to a further publishing procedure and is rejected. Compatible external reviews are binding for the editor.

"Ghostwriting barrage"

According to the guidelines of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, a "ghostwriting barrage" is in place to counter "ghostwriting" and "guest authorship." Readers should be sure that the authors of the publication present honestly the results of their work, regardless of whether they are direct authors, or whether they have benefited from a specialized entity (natural or legal person). "Ghostwriting" is a case where someone made a significant contribution to a publication without disclosing his or her participation as one of the authors. The "guest authorship" ("authorship") is based on the consideration of a particular person as an author or co-author, even though his or her participation was negligible or not at all. Both attitudes are a manifestation of scientific misconduct.

 

To prevent these phenomena:

1. Editors require to disclose the contribution of individual authors to the publication (including their affiliation and information about who is the author of the concepts, assumptions, methods, etc. used in the preparation of the publication). The author of the article has main responsibility.

2. Any uncovered scientific misconduct will be disclosed, including notification to the relevant bodies (institutions employing authors, associations, etc.).

3. The authors of the publication are obliged to inform the editors about the subjects that contributed to the creation of the publication and about the substantive and financial contributions of the research centers,

4. The editors document all manifestations of scientific misconduct, especially violations of ethical rules in science.

The yearbook "Warmia Studies" consists of the following parts: 1. Philosophy; 2. Theology; 3. Law; 4. Family sciences; 5. History; 6. Reports; 7. Reviews. To assess each text from sections 1-5, two independent reviewers from outside the unit are appointed (more information on the journal's website). Each text is subject to a detailed editorial elaboration in the Publishing House of the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn.

II. Preparation of the text

The author delivers the text to the Editorial Office of "Warmia Studies" by e-mail to the address: studiawarminskie@onet.pl

Preferred text version: Word; font: Times New Roman; font size in the main text: 12; line spacing: 1.5; font size in footnotes: 10. The margins of each printout should have the following dimensions: upper and lower 25 mm, left 35 mm, right 15 mm. Text formatting should be kept to a minimum: paragraph indents, centering, italics. The volume of texts sent to sections 1-5 should not exceed 30,000 characters (including footnotes and spaces), i.e. about 15 pages (according to the above criteria). Reports and reviews should not exceed 6,000 characters (including spaces), i.e. about 3 pages (according to the above criteria).

The submitted text (from sections 1-5) should be accompanied by summaries in Polish and English (each of them up to 1500 characters, i.e. about half of the text prepared according to the above criteria) and key words in Polish and English (from five to seven, placed after the title, before the text of the work).

The submitted text should be accompanied by an attachment bibliography prepared according to the principles of the Harvard style.

A list of abbreviations used in the paper should be attached to the work (according to the formulas given i Encyklopedia katolicka, ed. KUL).

On the first page in the upper left corner of the printout, the author gives his name and his scientific institution, e.g. Jan Nowak, Faculty of Theology, University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn.

On the first page as a footnote (marked "Address/Addresse:") the author gives the title or degree, name and surname, scientific affiliation, mailing address and e-mail, e.g. Address/Adresse: Rev. Zdzisław Kieliszek, PhD, Department of Canon Law and Philosophy, University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, Hozjusza 15, 11-041 Olsztyn, zdzislawkieliszek@onet.pl.

In the main text, when the author is called for the first time, his full name and possibly the initials of the next names should be given before the name. When the individual author is recalled once again, only the first initials of the names should be kept.

The titles of works and other sources referred to in the text should be given in italics, e.g. Critique of pure reason.

Compound or single expressions in foreign languages than the language of the main text should be written in italics, e.g. "The German word Vernunft (reason) has appeared at least since the 18th century as a translation ratio".

Reviewed articles (from sections 1-5) are sent electronically with reviews to the authors. The author should read the reviews, respond to the comments of the reviewers and, after taking them into account electronically, return the text with the revised version to the editors. If the author does not take into account reviewers' comments, it is necessary to substantiate this decision and send it to the Editorial Board in paper or electronic form.

The editors of "Warmia Studies" accepts only previously unpublished texts for publication. Authors of the texts are obliged to submit an appropriate statement confirming the originality of the work.

III. Bibliographic references

In the "Warmia Studies" reference is made to bibliographic references according to the Harvard style. The basic principle here is to give in the text in parentheses the names of the author and the initial of the name, date of issue and page number, e.g.: (Nowak P., 1999, p. 45), (Adamski K., 2015, p. 44-46; Krasiński P.K., 2017, p. 131-133).

Other variants of bibliographic references in the text:

Piotr Nowak (1999, p. 131) so summarized the above thought …..

Piotr Nowak (1999, p. 131) says that: "Thought………”.

In the event that the authors of a given publication are two people, both names are given, separating with the conjunction "and", e.g.: (Wiśniewska P. and Olsztyńska B., 2000, p. 31).

In the case of three authors and more, please give the name of the first one and use the abbreviation "and others", e.g. (Warmiński Z. and others, 2007, p. 23-25).

By referring to several works of the same author published in one year, in order to distinguish them, a small letter 'a', 'b' etc. is added after the date of publication, e.g.: (Krawiec M., 1999a, p. 2), (Krawiec M., 1999b, p. 14) i (Krawiec M., 1999c, p. 1).

In the above case, it should be remembered that in the reference bibliography - which is a list of used literature - the appropriate designations should be provided in the years of publication, e.g.:

1. Krawiec Mikołaj, 1999a, Historia Indonezji, SBP, Warszawa.

2. Krawiec Mikołaj, 1999b, Problemy współczesnych mieszkańców Papui Nowej Gwinei, Azja-Pacyfik: pismo poświęcone cywilizacji regionu Azji i Pacyfiku, No. 13, p. 50-67.

3. Krawiec Mikołaj, 1999c, Szkolnictwo wyższe we współczesnej Japonii, Wydawnictwo UWM w Olsztynie, Olsztyn.

In the reference bibliography, each item is given according to the principle: surname, first name (and subsequent initials), year of publication, title of the work (in italics), publishing house, place of publication (or title of the journal, journal number - simple font), article pages (if it comes from a collective work or a magazine):

1....

2....

3. Edmondson Henry, 2015, Immanuel Kant, transl. Piotr Łęcki, in: Sławomir Popek (ed.), Dzieje filozofii, UMCS, Lublin, p. 47-79.

4. Malinowski Piotr, 2002, Krótka historia teologii, Wydawnictwo Znak, Kraków.

5. Warmiński Piotr T.K., Kształcenie nauczycieli zajęć edukacyjnych „Wychowanie do życia w rodzinie”, www.portaloswiatowy.pl (24.01.2018).

6. Żelazny Piotr, 2002, Trendy we współczesnej teologii, Communio, No. 15, p. 14-38.

In the footnotes (marked with consecutive numbers) additional or supplementary information may appear (digressions, polemics, etc.). In the footnote references to literature should also be prepared according to the Harvard style.

IV. Quotes

Quotations from the Bible should be written in italics (without quotation marks). All other quotes should be enclosed in quotation marks (without italics). Quotations should be checked carefully with the source. Quotes from the Bible according to the Millennium Bible. In case of fragments of poetry or drama, it is necessary to preserve the graphic layout of the original (division into stanzas, indentation of verses). In quotes from prose or from scholarly works it should also keep paragraph indents and distinguish the original. Any changes to the quote and additional distinctions must be annotated in square brackets. All quotes must be accompanied by a bibliographical note. Fragments left in the quotations should be marked with three dots in square brackets.
