“The Studies of Warmia” were founded in 1964. Untill 2010 they were the journal of the theological seminary “Hosianum” in Olsztyn. Up to now we have 47 volumes of “The Studies of Warmia”. In this time the periodical was a very important medium, which enabled the presentation of the effects of the scientific researches of the representatives connected with the local theological center. “The Studies of Warmia” became the journal of the Theological Faculty of the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn from 2011. The scholars from the Theological Faculty as well as from the other universities can present the effects of their inquiries. Every volume has the following sections: philosophy, theology, law, family studies and history. Every periodical has the presentations of monographs and reports from the scientific conferences.

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.
