The peer review process is designed to assess the validity, quality and the originality of articles for publication. Its purpose is to maintain the integrity of science by filtering out invalid or poor quality articles.
Acta Marisiensis Seria Historia uses double-blind peer 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:
- Submit the Title Page containing the Authors details and Blinded Manuscript with no author details as 2 separate files.
Information to help prepare the Title Page
This should include the title, author’s name and affiliation, and a complete corresponding address including telephone and e-mail address.
