Aims and Scope & Ethical Statement

Teologický časopis [ISSN 1336–3395] is a peer-reviewed journal issued twice a year by the Theological Faculty of Trnava University in Slovakia. In 2012 the scope of the journal has been redefined so that it now serves as a platform for presentation of theological opinions of diverse Christian denominations on a scholarly level. All aspects of theological issues may be covered with aim to promote a dialogue among Christian denominations active in the post-communist countries of the Central Europe. Articles with an offensive content will not be accepted for publication. 


Ethical Policies for the Journal

Editors and Reviewers

Ecumenical character of the journal binds both editors and reviewers to evaluate submitted manuscripts regardless of denominational affiliation of their authors.

The editor in chief is responsible for transparency with regard to competing interests during the peer review process. Reviewers may be chosen from all relevant academic institutions with exception of that/those with which the author of the manuscript is affiliated. The editor in chief will also make sure that no more than two thirds of authors who publish in the individual issue of the journal come from the same institution.

Editor in chief is responsible for protecting individual data by obeying the laws on confidentiality. 

When plagiarism, duplicate publication, and unethical research is detected, the paper is rejected from publication. If discovered after publication, retraction of the article is considered by editors. In the print issue, a retraction notice will be published in the next available issue while the original text will remain accessible. In the PDF version available on the website of the journal under the tab “Archive” in the main menu, the PDF will be replaced with a version watermarked with RETRACTED. 

The peer review process is confidential. This means that identities of the author are not to be disclosed to reviewers, nor the author is acquainted with the identity of the reviewer.

Neither editors nor reviewers will disclose information about articles under revision without a consent of the author.

Original ideas contained in the reviewing manuscript are not to be used for a personal benefit of the reviewer. 



Manuscripts submitted for publication must result from author’s own research while all other material which is not original to the author must be properly cited.

Articles should contain an objective discussion of the results presented therein as well as a clear statement of their contribution to the most recent scholarly debate.

If the author discovers an error or inaccuracy in the manuscript after its submission, it is his/her responsibility to inform a member of the Editorial Board with whom he/she will consult a solution to the problem.  

Authors are expected to participate in peer review process, and to provide retractions or corrections of mistakes if needed.

It should be clearly stated in the submitted manuscript if results presented therein are based on the research enabled by a funded research project. Information should contain the name of the project as well as the identity of the grantor.  

No manuscript submitted to the journal can be submitted to another journal or a book at the same time.


Access to Research Published in the Journal

Teologický časopis is an open access journal (OA), and therefore does not charge authors an Article Processing Charge (APC). Academic research presented in articles submitted to the journal is available online so that anyone, anywhere, may read and build upon this research.

Individual issues of Teologický časopis are archived electronically (files in PDF format) on the journal website so that they may always be easily accessible by readers and authors even if the journal is no longer published.
