 Peer-review process

Firstly, the Editorial Committee reviews all papers, checking for completion of all the instructions criteria. All articles must comply with our ethical standards (based on COPE standards) and, at the end process, authors must sign a Statement of originality and authorization for the publication. If not all criteria are met, the author(s) will be dully informed.

After the initial revision, the Editorial Committee send the papers to our external peer review academics, who evaluate the papers’ scientific and academic quality. At least one academic will fill the Journal review form. Neither the author identity nor the other peer review identity is revealed to any of the peers, to fulfill the requirements of the double blind peer review procedure. Once partners submit their corrections, the Editorial Committee choses either to accept with adjustments, to accept fully or to reject the papers.

The Journal’s Editorial Team notifies the author of its decision after a maximum period of three months after submission. Once the papers are accepted and corrections made, the articles are then subject to form revision, which will always accept each author’s style and will never correct content.

The review process and the publication generates no cost at all.
