The “Family Forum” Editorial Board follows the reviewing procedure of scientific articles in accordance with “Basic principles for reviewing publications in journals” posted on the MNiSW (the Ministry of Science and Higher Education).

It means that the reviewing procedure takes place with the principles of confidentiality,
that is the author(s) and the reviewer(s) do not know each other’s identity (double-blind review procedure).
The reviewer prepares a written assessment of the article on the appropriate form

The author/authors Reed to refer in details to all critical opinions of the reviewer/reviewers
of the article. The correspondence between the author and the reviewer is done only through the “Family Forum” Editorial Board. All the accepted comments must be considered in the appropriate correction of the
work. In case of observations with which he disagrees, the author prepares clear and explicit argumentation, pointing the disagreement with the reviewer’s opinion.

The article is submitted to be published with two explicit positive reviews. In case of one negative review, there is a need of appointing a third reviewer whose assessment will decide on admission to the publication of the article or its rejection.

Texts of not a scientific character do not require any review and are eligible
to print directly by the Editorial Board.
