Information for authors

Guidelines for Authors

  • Only original research articles that have not been submitted to any other journal or publisher are accepted.
  • An article may be submitted in either Polish or English; it must be written in an impersonal form.
  • Articles should be no longer than 30 pages (Times New Roman, 12-point font, 2.5 cm margins, 1.5 line spacing).
  • Articles should be clearly separated into parts, such as an introduction, chapters/sections, and an ending (conclusions, summary).
  • References should be cited in the body of the text, not in the footnotes. Examples:
    (a) Management of natural resources exploitation is based on both economic and ecological principles [Goleman, 2009].
    (b) A similar micro approach based on simple Mincerian equations was used earlier by Prasad [2003] for Germany.
    (c) The inclusion of A.C. Pigou's theory of externalities into neoclassical analysis [Pigou, 1941, 1943, 1947] resulted in including the social costs or benefits of the aggregate supply.
    (d) For a discussion of rationing rules see, for example, Tirole [1988: 212-214].
  • As the journal is printed in black and white (with tones of gray), please ensure that no other colors are used in any charts or diagrams.

The procedure for qualifying an article for publication

  • Articles are qualified for publication on the basis of a peer review process.
  • Articles are reviewed by at least two reviewers who are experts in the subject matter covered by the article.
  • The review process is conducted according to a "double-blind" principle-neither the reviewer nor the author are aware of each other's identity.
  • In the event of discrepancies in the evaluation of an article by two reviewers, the article is referred to a third reviewer for a conclusive review.
  • Reviews are in writing and contain a clear conclusion as to whether or not the article can be accepted for publication.
  • Articles are reviewed in accordance with uniform evaluation criteria adopted by the Editorial Board and set out in an article evaluation form.
  • Articles are evaluated on the basis of the following criteria:
    - suitability for a magazine of this type,
    - original content,
    - contribution of new insight into the subject of research,
    - factual accuracy.
  • Reviews form the basis of the Editorial Board's final decision on whether or not an article will be accepted for publication; on each occasion, such a decision is made after a discussion.
  • Editorial Board decisions end with one of the following conclusions:
    - The article is academically irreproachable and qualifies for publication.
    - The article requires some (minor) corrections and will qualify for publication once these are made.
    - The article requires significant (major) corrections and needs to be re-reviewed once these are made and before it can be qualified for publication.
    - The article does not qualify for publication.
  • If reservations are expressed with regard to an article, its authors are expected to take these into account in a new version of the article.
  • If the authors are unable to take the reservations into account, they should make a case in writing, explaining why.
  • If major reservations are expressed with regard to an article, the new version of the article will be re-reviewed by one of the reviewers who evaluated the original article.

Additional guidelines for authors of articles accepted for publication

  • Accepting an article for publication requires the disclosure of the author's identity and affiliation. You should also provide the author's email address to respond to any letters from readers. This version should include any acknowledgements or information about the sources of financing the research (e.g. "statutory research", NCN grant, etc.).
  • The article should be emailed in Word format to: gospodarka.narodowa@sgh.waw.pl

Other information (ghostwriting etc.)

  • The magazine has a procedure in place to prevent ghostwriting (a situation in which someone who has made a significant contribution to an article did not disclose his or her role as one of the authors or his or her role was not listed in the acknowledgments contained in the article) and guest authorship (a situation in which someone is listed as the author or co-author of an article even though their role is minimal or nonexistent). Any case of ghostwriting or guest authorship will be disclosed and an appropriate procedure will be launched, including the notification of the appropriate authorities.
  • The Editorial Board declares that the printed version of Gospodarka Narodowa is the primary version of the magazine.
  • The list of article reviewers is published annually in the last issue of Gospodarka Narodowa of the year (No. 6).
