Recenzní řízení

Submitted manuscripts are initially reviewed by editor-in-chief and some other members of the editorial board for intrinsic quality, contribution to debate and suitability for the journal.  Some submissions can be rejected or be returned with the recommendation to revise and resubmit at this stage, accompanied by comments. Papers that receive a balance of favourable reviews and are considered a high priority for space in the journal will be refereed by specialists in their subject matter.  At this phase, the reviewing process is also anonymous: the authors´ names are always concealed from the reviewers´ and reviewers’ names are always concealed from the submitting author.  Authors are then sent all the accumulated comments, which may contain suggestions for minor or more substantial revisions.


Decisions on manuscripts will be taken as rapidly as possible. Although Cargo aims to provide authors with a preliminary response within two months of submission, the increasing demands on the time of our specialist peer reviewers will sometimes result in longer turnaround times.

Text citations in relation to surrounding text and punctuation Recent literature has examined long-run price drifts following initial public offerings (Ritter 1991; Loughran and Ritter 1995), stock splits (Ikenberry, Rankine, and Stice 1996), seasoned equity offerings (Loughran and Ritter 1995), and equity repurchases (Ikenberry, Lakonishok, and Vermaelen 1995).

Fiorina et al. (2005) and Fischer and Hout (2006) reach more or less the same conclusions.

As Edward Tufte (2001: 139) points out, “A graphical element may carry data information and also perform a design function usually left to non-data-ink.”
