Review procedure
 
A reviewer will get an e-mail invitation to review an article, with its title and an abstract of the article, and have 7 days to accept or decline the invitation. If a reviewer does not respond within 7 days, the Managing Editor can un-invite him and invite another reviewer.
For a review the reviewer has 3 weeks. If after that time reviewer does not resend the review, the Managing Editor will send him a reminder letter. After accepting an invitation the reviewer downloads the full manuscript, and performs the descriptive review, clearly expressing their own decisions about the manuscript.

A reviewer must select one of four possibilities:
– Accept
– Minor Revision
– Major Revision
– Reject

A descriptive review should include answers to the following issues:
– Is the subject addressed in the article worthy of investigation,
– Is the presented information new,
– Is the conclusion supported by the data,
– Were the materials and methods used adequate (for the problem under investigation) and sufficiently well documented, such that the ressearch could be repeated.

Because the Journal practices Double Blind review, the reviewer cannot sign a review. In the event of a reviewer having questions (minor or major revision) the Managing Editor will send reviews with a decision letter to the author. The author must answer the reviewer point by point and resend a revised manuscript to the Editorial Office. The Author should assign two versions of revised manuscript: one with changes marked in red and one with changes without any color. The Managing Editor, at this stage, has the following options: accept, send for review once again, reject. Finally, the Managing Editor after consultation with the Editor-in-Chief will make a final decision. The reviewing procedures in force at the Journal of Plant Protection Research are consistent with the guidelines of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education on reviewing publications in research journals.
