Peer Review Process

Collegium Antropologicum is journal with anonymous international peer review. Original scientific papers, reviews, professional papers and case reports are sent to two, and preliminary communications to one reviewer. Only favourably rated papers are accepted for publication. The editorial board of the journal reserves the right to make changes to the text in order to comply with standards of journal style and English language.

To facilitate the whole process of peer review but to still keep it anonymous and unbiased authors in Step 1 of the online submission procedure can suggest up to 5 possible reviewers for their paper.


When suggesting a reviewer please keep in mind that they should be recognized scientists in the field of study that your paper is dealing with. The authors should also keep in mind that potential reviewers should be scientist primarily working on renowned institutions outside of author’s country. Suggested reviewers should not be colleagues or collaborators form author’s institution. Authors are kindly asked to refrain from sending us suggestions where all suggested reviewers are from one, usually author’s country. Furthermore, suggestions for possible reviewers should include scientists from different countries and institutions of the world.

Authors are especially warned not to send suggestions of reviewers where all of them belong to the countries of former Yugoslavia.

Please note that submissions that fail to meet these demands WILL BE REJECTED without consideration.

Our intention is to shorten the peer review process but also to retain objectivity and quality of anonymous peer review. Beside the name and affiliation please provide us also with reviewer's address, affiliation and most importantly  EMAIL just as it is outlined in the table in the Step 1 of the online submission procedure.
