The submitted papers are subject to pre-evaluation by the Editorial Board. The purpose of pre-evaluation is to determine whether a manuscript complies with the journal policy. The Editor-in-Chief sends manuscripts approved by the Editorial Board to two experts in relevant fields. Each manuscript is accompanied with a reviewers’ evaluation form, which contains questions meant to help referees cover all aspects that should be taken into consideration in order to decide the fate of a submission. In the final section of the evaluation form, the reviewers must include observations and suggestions aimed at improving the submitted manuscript; these are sent to authors, without the names of the reviewer, and the authors are required to make necessary corrections. The author decides about accepting the reviewers’ suggestions and informs the Editorial Board about decision.
If the decisions of the two reviewers are not the same (accept/reject), the Editor-in-Chief may assign additional reviewers. The choice of reviewers is at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief.
The journal Demografija does not charge APCs (Article Processing Charges). Submission, peer review and publishing procedures are free of charge.
