The review process for texts submitted to Psychology of Language and Communication
All submissions are sent out for assessment (to three reviewers) in a double-blind review process, i.e., the identities of authors and reviewers are not revealed.
Reviews assess the following aspects of a text:
Presentation of the research problem in the context of the literature (assessed as being unsatisfactory, satisfactory, exhaustive);
Clarity and logic of reasoning (assessed as being unsatisfactory, satisfactory, excellent);
Procedure of research and analysis of empirical material (assessed as being unsatisfactory, satisfactory, excellent);
Language correctness and formal aspects (assessed as being unsatisfactory, satisfactory, first-class).
A review must end with an unequivocal conclusion as to whether the submission should be accepted or rejected for publication:
the manuscript should be rejected, it should not be published in Psychology of Language and Communication (when a manuscript is strongly incompatible with the periodical's profile the reviewer may suggest that the author submit it to a different periodical),
the manuscript should be returned to the author(s) with suggestions regarding necessary corrections (to be followed by a review of the corrected text),
the text may be accepted as long as corrections are made, without the need for a further review,
the text may be published as is.
Only texts with three positive reviews (i.e., approved by three reviewers) are accepted for publication in Psychology of Language and Communication.
The journal is intended to serve as a forum for discussion on various aspects of psychological research on language and communicative processes. We hope that Psychology of Language and Communication will contribute to a mutual sharing of experiences by psycholinguists in diverse centers in West and East.
