Peer review process: description



All papers received will be submitted to a double blind peer review process. The Editors may discard some manuscripts from the outright due to notorious low quality or disadjustment with the journal’s scope.


Taking in consideration its subjects, the papers passing this preliminary screening will be submitted to two referees for external scientific evaluation, always chosen by their recognized expertise. Proposals ensuing from formal invitations by coordinators of thematic dossiers or from the Editorial Board are submitted to review by the dossier coordinators and the coordinator of the Editorial Board and by, at least, an external referee on a double anonymity basis. In order to ensure anonymity, referees are presented every two volumes.


After evaluation, the referees will produce reports about the works reviewed, by which the papers can be

a) accepted with modifications or corrections

b) approved as they are

c) rejected from the start.


In case that the papers proposed are accepted but in need of modifications or corrections, the Editors will return the manuscripts to the authors, together with the referee’s reports and all the suggestions, recommendations and comments therein.


To secure impartiality during the review process, all papers, as remitted to the referees, will be anonymous. Moreover, the referees’ identities will not be known, neither by the rest of the evaluation panel, nor by the authors.


The final decision concerning the publication of papers belongs to the Editorial Board, having the referees a consultative role.
