Peer Review Process

The proceedings of EFoC follow the system of 'blind' double peer review which ensures the equal treatment of each submitted text. As a rule, each article submitted for publication is evaluated by two reviewers. A third reviewer is used when the evaluations of the first two differ significantly.

For all submitted papers, the Editorial Board announces and explains to the authors its decision, incorporating the reviewers' comments and indicating possible directions for improvement.

EFoC strictly follows rules of confidentiality, editorial confidentiality, and protection of personal data during the evaluation process of the works. The Editorial Board does not disclose information about submitted papers except to reviewers and authors.

The Editorial Board evaluates the papers on the basis of their scientific content and in no way on the basis of the race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, nationality, or political beliefs of the authors.
