Svět literatury is a peer-reviewed journal. Manuscripts submitted to the journal are all considered for publication. After the initial assessment of its appropriateness of content and form (see Submission Guidelines) by the editors, the manuscript is subjected to double-blind peer review process: it is anonymously reviewed by two independent readers. The readers evaluate the manuscript in terms of its originality, its meeting of the scholarly standards, its contribution to the respective field of research, and its overall quality. On the basis of the reviewers’ recommendations the editors decide whether the manuscript will be accepted for publication or rejected. The editors can also ask the author to make changes to the manuscript as suggested by the reviewers. The final responsibility for all editorial decisions rests with the editor-in-chief.
