Guidelines for reviewers - reviewing procedure

Materials submitted for publication are subject to a review process in line with international science standards and current guidelines of the Minister of Science and Higher Education.

Reviews are made by independent reviewers selected in such a way as to prevent a conflict of interest between the author and the reviewer, according to the double-blind review formula. In the case of studies in English, it is possible to submit the manuscript for review by at least one reviewer from outside Poland.

The reviewer gives an opinion on the text content, paying attention to the aspects of the views presented in the text, their significance for a given discipline of knowledge, the justification of theses and the ability to use the existing literature.

The opinion of the reviewer is made in writing and ends with a clear conclusion – the text has been accepted for publication, requires corrections or has been rejected. The Editorial Board may ask the author to take a position on a negative review, and forward the text to the next reviewer for verification.

Reviews formulated in the Review Form for an article in "Nieruchomości@” quarterly.

In order to counteract ghostwriting and guest authorship, which are a manifestation of scientific misconduct, the author or co-authors submitting the text to the Editorial Board are required to determine their contribution to the publication, and to inform the editorial team about the sources of funding for the research, the results of which are presented in the work. Any found cases of ghostwriting and guest authorship will be documented and disclosed, including notification of relevant entities (institutions employing the authors, scientific societies, associations of scientific editors, etc.).

The contribution of each author in the preparation of the work is determined by the following categories:

  1. manuscript preparation;
  2. data collection;
  3. data interpretation;
  4. literature compilation;
  5. financing.
