Peer review

All contributions will be initially assessed by the editor-in-chief and the managing editors for suitability for the journal. This includes fact-checking the content, spelling and grammar, writing style, and figures. Papers that appear to be plagiarized, are ghost-written, have been published elsewhere, are outside the scope of journal, or are of little interest to readers of Hungarian Geographical Bulletin may be rejected. Papers deemed suitable are then typically sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper. We use a double-blind review process, which means the identities of authors and reviewers are not known to each other. The review process is supervised by those members of the editorial board who are familiar with the topic of the paper. Papers are rejected or accepted based on the peer reviews and editorial board’s decision.
