Peer Review Process

Each contribution that is submitted for publication undergoes a process of evaluation. The principle of a double blind peer review is applied in that each contribution is assessed by two experts and recommended for either acceptance, revision or is denied. In this process, the assessors as well as the submitter remain anonymous. The editors in charge select the assessors. If two assessors do not agree, a third appraisal will be ordered.


Publication Frequency

Zwingliana appears once yearly in print and is made electronically available on this website after three years.


Open Access Policy

Zwingliana provides free electronic access to its issues three years after it appears in print.
