Focus and Scope

Warsaw University Law Review thoroughly analyzes all submitted papers. Our selection process consists of several stages. Each piece is evaluated, with respect to its substance and as to its compliance with the Citation Guide, by at least two editors. The said analysis is primarily focused on the detection of plagiarism and other forms of unfair usage of intellectual property. Subsequently, papers are subject to debate in the forum of the entire Editorial Board. As a result, selected manuscripts are accepted for the double-blind review procedure. Our of concern for the highest quality of published papers, Warsaw University Law Review does not omit any of the above-mentioned stages. Hence, please understand that our selection process takes time.

Factors such as Author’s race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, political beliefs or affiliation remain irrelevant for the assessment. Papers are being evaluated in terms of their originality, scientific value, transparency of the discussed issues, topicality of the presented research and compliance with the Citation Guide. An editor does not disclose any information related to submitted papers to persons who are not participating directly in the publishing process. An editor strives to eliminate all manifestations of plagiarism and ghost-writing. In case of an infringement of the Editorial Policies, author has an opportunity to respond to the charges brought against him within 14 days. If no reply is received within the prescribed period or the received replica raises serious doubts, Editorial Board sends relevant information to the institution in which the Author is affiliated.

All persons who have made a significant contribution to an article must be listed as co-authors. Person submitting the article should disclose the scope of contribution of each individual author to the creation of the work and make sure that all co-authors agree to the publication of the text in the form in which it was sent to the Editorial Board.

Peer Reviewer’s Duties

The content of the review may affect the final form of the paper under consideration. To be successfully implemented into a paper, any changes suggested by the Peer Reviewer must be conclusively approved by the Author.
