INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS

 


The Journal of Physical Education and Sport (JPES) promotes OPEN ACCES - OPEN PEER REVIEW SYSTEM and selects the best manuscripts for publication.

(total transparency and collaboration between author and reviewer, if there are non-compliant elements.The final decision is taken by the editor based on discussions and clarifications authorreviewer, and based on the final report on the manuscript)


Editor-mediated review
- editorial pre-selection of articles
- final decision The editor decides whether the article should be accepted, and formulates change requirements for the authors

 

The editorial staff requires that all manuscripts that are sent for publication to be evaluated.
A reviewed manuscript will be subject to one of four possible outcomes regarding publication in JPES.
1. Initial rejection of the manuscript by the editing committee without further review (due to severe deficiencies in writing/content, theme)
2. Acceptance without modifications
3. Acceptance with minor modifications
4. Acceptance only after major modifications

The decision will be communicated to the respective author(s) in a strictly anonymous form. During the peer-review process, the reviewers will evaluate elements from the Evaluation Protocol that is provided below, which makes direct reference to having published a manuscript that is considered an original article. 
1.    Originality of the investigation                                             20 points   
2.    Scientific topicality                                                               15 points   
3.    Applicability to current practice                                           15 points   
4.    Design quality of the study                                                 10 points   
5.    Quality of the disclosed results                                           10 points   
6.    Clarity and depth of the discussions                                   10 points   
7.    Clarity of the conclusions                                                    10 points   
8.    Accuracy of timely quotes and the bibliography                   5 points   
9.    General language quality of the manuscript                         5 points   
On the basis of these considerations from the Evaluation Protocol, all manuscripts will be given a maximum number of points: < 50 points will result in rejection, >70 will result in publication, and 50-70 points will require some punctual modifications to the article before acceptance/rejection is decided.
