Writing Guidelines

The journal primarily publishes scientific articles, the paper should not exceed 60.000 characters. All submitted articles should report original, previously unpublished, theoretical and empirical research results. A paper can be submitted electronically to the editorship (fai@econ.muni­.cz) in MS Word (.doc or .docx). Paper template is available here: Template

Only papers in which the structure meets the general requirements for the structure of a scientific paper are accepted for the review: the text should include an introduction defining the analyzed topic and originality of research, a review of literature and methods, an analysis of the issue, the contribution to the current state of knowledge, the discussion of the results, and a summary with clear formulation of the conclusion. All sources should be continually cited in the text and stated in the list of references.

Peer Review Process

Submitted paper is concisely assessed by the journal editor who checks whether it is in accordance with the focus of journal and if it satisfies the general requirements of a scientific paper.

For every contribution two two-page reviews will be provided. The reviewers are unaware of the identity of the authors, and authors are also unaware of the identity of reviewers. The reviewers are experts in the field the paper is focused on. They are asked to fill in the review form which contains 12 criteria, space for additional comments, reviewer’s re­commendations (to publish the paper in its present form or to modify or to reject the paper) and space for comment to the editor only. The standard review process lasts from two to six weeks. This period can be extended in extra ordinary circumstances depending on cooperation with reviewers.

The editorial board will decide against or in favour of the acceptance for publication on the basis of reviews. Editors may accept articles for publishing conditionally and request that reviewers' remarks are incorporated.

For more information on the authors' and reviewers' duties see Publication Ethics.
