instructions for the authors

The author guarantees the factual content of his/her contribution as well as that the contribution (or any of its parts, including figures and plates) is not in violation of Act No. 121/2000 Coll. as amended (Copyright Act).

The editors accept submissions continuously, no deadlines are announced. The second issue is usually dedicated to the results of archaeological projects.

All contributions are assessed by two anonymous reviewers selected by the editorial board. The authors are obliged to rework the contribution according to the reviewers’ comments or, in case they disagree with them from their scientific point of view, state their objections in written form (electronically). The editors operate as mediators between the authors and the reviewers. The results of the reviewing process express the opinion of the editors.

The editor in chief is responsible for the assessment of the scholarly level of the texts, makes recommendations to the editorial board, and makes a final decision as to the texts’ acceptance and the journal’s content composition, including limited acceptance of the non-reviewed contributions. The content composition of the current issue will be discussed during the forthcoming meeting of the editorial board. The board will recommend the selection of reviewers for the individual contributions.

The authors are not paid for their contributions in the journal. The authors will receive one (in case of non-reviewed contribution) or two (peer-reviewed contributions) printed copies of the issue and an offprint in a .pdf format.

After the acceptance for publication, the text is linguistically, graphically, and editorially processed. Before it is send to the typesetting, the author will receive the text via email for the first proofreading. Before printing, the already typeset text is sent to the author for the second proofreading. The texts to be corrected are sent to the authors via email (page proofs).
