Information for authors

The editorial board's policy is expressed in its preference for scientific articles based on solid reflection, extensive knowledge of the literature on the subject, or empirical analysis.

In keeping with the nature of our journal, interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary articles are especially preferred. Thematically, texts discussing contemporary transformations (transformations - "all and everywhere", in all aspects, dimensions and perspectives - see the thematic declaration preceding the table of contents) are especially desirable. Phenomena, processes, events generating, influencing or accompanying contemporary transformations are of interest to us. Therefore, even narrowly thematic and specialized articles are worth relating to the mentioned issues. We also prefer an issue-based and prospective orientation.

Authors are encouraged to write in simple, clear and concise language, to avoid excessive disciplinary jargon. Texts should be well documented (footnotes, bibliography) - in accordance with the standard adopted in previous issues.

In addition to typical research papers, other forms of expression related to the suggested approach and to the issue of the paper are also acceptable.

Submitted texts are reviewed and opinionated by the Editorial Board and external experts (as required by the Ministry of Science and Education).

Review process

Research articles submitted to Transformation:
