Peer Review Process

All articles are examinated by one of the editors upon receipt. Before review, all manuscript submited to Acta agriculturae Slovenica are checked with the plagiarism prevention software to detect instances of overlapping and similar text. Afterwards the authors are usually asked to correct or change the article. After the articles have been corrected they are sent to two anonymous reviewers. The reviewers receive an article with the author’s name and affiliation, and the author receives the review(s) without the reviewer’s names. If the reviews do not require the article to be corrected or augmented, the review will not be sent to the author. Papers with major corrections are subject of a second review. If the size of the text fails to comply with the provisions for publication, the author shall allow the text to be appropriately modified according to the judgment of the publisher. The article may be rejected for publication by the reviewers or by the editors.
