Peer Review Process Manuscripts submitted to Vadyba/Journal of Management are subject to peer review to maintain the standards of the journal, promote rigorous research within the fields and to offer authors constructive feedback on their submissions. Vadyba/Journal of Management has a ‘double blind’ review process: Authors are not told who reviewed their paper, and referees do not know the name of the authors whose papers they review. The peer referees’ identity remains unknown to the authors. Manuscripts are sent out for review electronically, and all correspondence takes place in the journal system or via e-mail. Although the peer review process is accelerated by the use of electronic communication, traditional, high-quality peer-review standards are applied to all manuscripts submitted to the journal. Peer reviewers are asked to give their opinion on a number of issues pertinent to the quality and suitability of a paper, and to judge papers on grounds of originality and importance. We pride ourselves on providing constructive and formative feedback to authors. Reviewer Guidelines Reviewers of the journal are asked to consider the following points during their evaluation:
  • Does the paper have clear aims and objectives / research questions that can be achieved within the scope of the journal paper?
  • Does the paper make a contribution to knowledge?
  • Is the work suitably grounded in the literature to justify its contribution and frame the analysis/evaluation? Is the research/evaluation methodology justified, clear and appropriate? (Including ethical
  • considerations / approval where appropriate)
  • Does the analysis/ evaluation have a clear flow and logical argument?
  • Does the analysis/evaluation link to an appropriate discussion and conclusions?
  • Is it presented in a way which is suitable for the journal’s international audience?
Peer reviewers will have five possible options, for any paper:
  • Accept manuscript (i.e. no need for any revision).
  • Accept after revision (i.e. accepted if the author makes the requested revisions).
  • Revise and resubmit (i.e. accepted or rejected after revisions have been made – paper will be sent out for another peer review round).
  • Reject manuscript (i.e. if the manuscript is not sufficiently developed for publication).
  • See comments (i.e. if the reviewer cannot choose from any of the above).
In addition, papers may be returned to authors by the Editors prior to review, if judged to be out of scope, out of the limits of the word length guidance or not sufficiently prepared for publication. To facilitate rapid publication, authors are given a maximum of 6 weeks for revision. After 6 weeks, revised manuscripts will normally be considered new submissions.
