The author will be continuously updated about the progress of each stage of the process.

In this case, the third and decisive review determines whether the article is accepted for publication. The names of reviewers from the last two issues are published by the editors by the end of each year.

Any requests for reprinting are considered on a case-by-case basis and are carried out through an appropriate license agreement. Articles published in Kultura i Historia are available digitally, from the archive on the journal’s website.
