Author based financing
understandable that publishing of PEC costs some amount of money.
Scientia Socialis is a self-supporting Publisher that does not receive
funding from any institutions/government. The
costs of producing a journal include managing peer review and editorial
control, technical support, distribution, marketing etc. This is the main reason that
PEC use an author based financing system. The authors are
not charged for getting their papers reviewed - so if your manuscript is
rejected then you pay nothing. Only the manuscripts accepted for publication
will be invoiced for article processing charge. It is obvious, that the
acceptance of a paper does not depend on article processing charges. The
acceptance is based only on the results of peer-review procedure.
Submission of a manuscript implies; that the work described has not been published before (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, or thesis) that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that if and when the manuscript is accepted for publication, the authors agree to automatic transfer of the copyright to the publisher.
Peer Review Process
Each paper is reviewed by the Editor in Chief and, if it is judged suitable for publication, it is then sent to at least two referees for blind review. Neither the Editor nor the reviewer will impose his or her personal biases on authors. Every effort is made to ensure that all manuscripts receive constructive, objective and speedy appraisals. A special review form is prepared for the reviewer. Based on the recommendations, the Editor in Chief decides whether the paper should be accepted as is, revised (improved) or rejected. The process described above is a general one. This process may vary depending on certain circumstances. The review process usually takes around 2-3 weeks.
Publication Ethics Statement
PEC is committed to maintaining high standards through a
rigorous peer-review together with strong and transparent ethical policies.
