Guidelines for Reviewers
Papers published in the Acta Historica Tallinnensia must meet certain criteria relating to audience, technical content, and presentation. All paper submissions will be refereed in a double-blind peer review process by at least two reviewers with expertise in the relevant subject area. A double positive result means acceptance, a double negative rejection means rejection, and mixed response the involvement of a third referee, whose vote will be final.
The review form is designated to help reviewers evaluate manuscripts submitted to the Acta Historica Tallinnensia. If revisions are recommended, reviewers should be as specific as possible in describing changes and should indicate which changes are recommended and which are obligatory.
The reviewers are asked examine the manuscript soon after receiving it and return the review as soon as possible (but no later than 4 weeks after receiving the paper). If they cannot meet this term, other reviewers will be sought.
Reviewer confidentiality. The editors of Acta Historica Tallinnensia never disclose the names of reviewers to authors, unless it is required by the reviewer(s). Reviewers should regard a submitted manuscript as a confidential document. They should not use or disclose unpublished information in a manuscript except with the permission of author(s). Since there is no direct communication between author(s) and reviewer(s) concerning a manuscript, that permission can only be obtained via the editors.
The review should be returned to the editor-in-chief (firstname.lastname@example.org).
