1. Compatibility with the scope of Central European Journal of Sport Sciences and Medicine
2. Elements of novelty and originality
3. Scientific and/or practical value of the article
4. Ethic requirements
5. Abstract depicting the entire article
6. Material and design of the experiments
7. Methodology and statistics
8. Credibility and importance of results
9. Presentation of data (necessary tables and figures)
10. Discussion and interpretation of results
11. Conclusions logically justified by the evidence adduced
12. Selection of up-to-date references
Of these, the main factors taken into account are significance and originality.

The possible decisions include:
Accept after minor corrections
Re-evaluate after major revision

Articles that are often rejected include those that are poorly written or organized or are written in poor English. If authors are encouraged to revise and resubmittheir papers, there is no guarantee that the revised submission will be accepted. Rejected articles will not be re-reviewed. Articles may be rejected without review if the Editor-in-Chief considers the article obviously not suitable for publication.
