Basic rules and ethical standards for publication in the journal Vojenská história:
- Authors submit texts to the Editorial Office only in electronic form. The maximum length of the text is 72,000 characters. Authors are obliged to follow the instructions for the preparation of articles.
- Editorial Office will reject all articles that show any signs of plagiarism
- Authors are obliged to draw attention to articles on the relevant topic that have already been published.
- Authors are required to list citations (references), according to the ISO690 principles, which are specified in the specific guidelines for authors. They are fully responsible for the correct and accurate citation of the literature and sources used. They are obliged to indicate their professional affiliation (place of work, address, e-mail contact) and the source of financial support for the research, if any, from which the paper was created.
- Authors are obliged to immediately notify the Editorial Office of the journal of any serious mistakes or inaccuracies in the paper and to correct or rectify any mistakes brought to their attention not only in the review process but also if they are found to have made mistakes themselves.
- Authors are obliged to incorporate the reviewers‘ comments free of charge. In the case of a multi-authored work, the name of the lead author and the extent of each author‘s work shall be indicated for the purposes of the distribution of author‘s fees. In all papers, the author warrants that the publication of the work does not violate current copyright laws.
- Authors submit an original, previously unpublished paper for consideration. They may not submit for publication the same paper that has already been published elsewhere, or is under simultaneous consideration in another journal, unless it has been substantially revised or supplemented, both factually and interpretatively. In the case of a supplemented paper, information on the revision and extent of the supplementation, with a specific indication of where the original paper has already been published, should be given in the note to the paper. Issues raised are discussed in accordance with the guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics Resource Kit ("COPE") published at
- All studies and editions of documents in the journal Vojenská história are subject to peer review. The Editorial Office of the journal will check that the paper meets the basic criteria, is consistent with the focus of the journal, and has the required essentials. Subsequently, the paper, without the author‘s name, is submitted to the Editorial Board, whose members decide on the possibility of publishing the study and select one or two reviewers. Each reviewer will write his/her own review report, in which he/she will comment on the quality, originality and scientific contribution of the paper to the problem addressed.
- The review process is strictly anonymous, i.e. the names of the reviewers and authors are not known to each other ('double blind peer review'). Reviewers of studies are selected from among experts in the subject or field. The review reports must be objective and confidential, provided only to the authors and the Editorial Board as a basis for the final decision on publication. Personal criticism is not permitted. The anonymity of the review process is the responsibility of the Editorial Office.
- The reviewer must indicate in the review report whether he/she recommends publication, recommends publication after minor modifications, recommends revision and reconsideration, or does not recommend publication.
- The author is not obliged to incorporate reviewers‘ comments that the author considers irrelevant or erroneous. However, the author is obliged to inform the Editorial Office in writing of this fact and to provide written justification as to why he/she does not consider it appropriate to follow the reviewer‘s recommendations. If the reviewer does not accept these arguments and insists on incorporating his/her suggestions, the Editorial Office may, in agreement with the chairman of the Editorial Board, have another review report prepared and the final decision on publication will be made on the basis of the results of the vote of the Editorial Board.
- The Editorial Office of the journal Vojenská história archives the review reports for a period of 5 years.
- The Editorial Office will acknowledge the acceptance of the paper to the authors within 7 days. After checking whether the formal requirements have been met, the Editorial Office will notify the authors whether they accept the text for review or not. After the review process is closed, the Editorial Office informs the authors of its results. The length of the review process shall not exceed 2 months; in case of doubt and the need for an additional review, this period may exceed 2 months and the Editorial Office is obliged to inform the author thereof.
- The Editorial Office is responsible for ensuring that there is no conflict of interest in the preparation of the journal. The Editorial Board decides on authors‘ complaints by vote.
- If there are findings that call into question the results presented in an article already published, the Editorial Office will inform the authors of the findings. If the Editorial Board considers these errors to be more serious, the Editorial Board will decide to publish information about these findings in the next issue of the journal.
