Instructions for Reviewers 
  

As peer-review journals, we perform the quality control
for submitted manuscripts by refereeing process.
Without the knowledge of specialists we could not fulfill our mission. 

We are very grateful to our Reviewers for their effort and time spent
on evaluating manuscripts for Journal of Plant Protection Research.
 

DOUBLE-BLIND PEER REVIEW

This Journal uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process.

GENERAL EXPECTATIONS 

While preparing the reports, we ask our Referees to:

- comment on originality of presented work, how it presents in most recent
  literature on a topic discussed,
- evaluate authors' approach to discussed problem,
- evaluate reliability of obtained results and correctness of withdrawn conclusions,
- comment on artistic and technical aspects of paper,
- give the final evaluation of paper, inform us whether we should consider
  it further and what should be done in order to make it publishable (if it is possible),
- give us an idea of possible impact that the paper might have.

Please note that accepted papers will undergo language editing by native English speakers.

Incorrect grammar, style or punctuation should not be the reason to reject a paper if its content warrants the publication from the scientific point of view and is readable for the Reviewer.

CONFIDENTIALITY 

Please, do not distribute copies of the manuscript or use results contained in without authors' permission. However, please feel free to show it to knowledgeable colleagues and to consult them about the review. Suggestions for alternative referees are helpful to the editors and would be appreciated. 

SPECIFIC EXPECTATIONS

Research Papers

manuscripts submitted to JPPR should:
1. Contain original work - which is not published elsewhere in any medium
    by the authors or anyone else, and is not under consideration for publication
    in any other medium.
2. Be focused on the core aims and scope of the journal - as scientific journals,
    we publish research results from all fields of plant protection.
3. Be clearly and correctly written - should contain all essential features
    of a complete scientific paper, should be written in a clear, easy to understand
    manner, and be readable for a wide audience of researchers in the field.

Rapid Communications
 
should meet the key standards listed above and additionally should report high quality new work of such importance that merits urgent publication, and should be likely to make significant impact on the current research in the relevant area.
If however a contribution is not justified to be handled via rapid channel it may be considered as a research paper, probably after expansion or revision.

All reviews for JPPR should be accurate scientifically, should describe the most relevant and recent contributions, the subject matter should be discussed competently and the choice of citations should be adequate and should not overlook important contributions of other workers.
