About the periodical

ABOUT THE PERIODICAL

Rocznik Integracji Europejskiej [Yearbook of European Integration] is an academic periodical of the Faculty of Political Science and Journalism at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. The first issue was published in 2007. The principal objective of the periodical is to provide a platform for the presentation of research into the processes of European integration. The Rocznik is also a forum for the exchange of opinions among researchers dealing with European studies. Successive issues of the Rocznik include the results of surveys conducted in the following thematic areas: law, internal politics, economy, foreign policy, security, defense, society and culture. Every effort is made to ensure the selection of texts providing the possibility of a confrontation of the research methods, concepts and theoretical approaches applied.

Each issue of the Rocznik includes reviews and discussions. The Editorial Board points out significant publications on European integration that have emerged on the publishing market.

The authors encompass Polish and foreign researchers from a variety of academic institutions. We prefer texts written in congress languages. The authors are requested to read the guidelines for authors. Texts written in the English, Russian and German languages are linguistically verified by language editors of the periodical.

The Editorial Board endeavors to ensure a high standard of papers. After initial, formal verification, all papers are reviewed. They are sent to external reviewers collaborating with the Editorial Board. Publication is conditional on a positive assessment of the reviewers and the approval of the Editorial Board to include the paper in a successive issue of the Rocznik. We apply procedures to eliminate such practices as ‘ghost authorship’ and ‘guest authorship’. Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statment are described here.

We have the pleasure of informing you that the Rocznik Integracji Europejskiej has been accredited by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education. Authors are awarded 20 points for publishing an academic paper in our periodical.

The journal is indexed in Index Copernicus database. Full versions of articles published in the journal are available on the PRESSTO platform, in the AMUR repository and in the CEEOL, BazHum, CEJSH, PBN Pol-Index, EBSCO, World Cat reference database.
