Paper Submission and Publishing Process:

The editor should screen the submitted manuscripts to make sure that all the files have no identifying information on the authors and that the article has not been published elsewhere. Then, in a time period of 15 days maximum from the date of reception, the editor will assign it to two external evaluators that will carry out a blind review of the article (double blind peer review). Over the review period of the article, both the names of the authors as well as the evaluators’ will be anonymous. The editor may reject it because it is not dealing with the subject matter for the journal or because it is clearly of a low quality. When you submit your article you will receive a submission acknowledgement letter within one or two working days. Any manuscripts out of the journal’s scope or containing plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, would be rejected.
Editor check all the reviews done and contrast the reviewers’ notes with the content of the article before sending decisions and reviewers comment to authors. If reviewers do not carry out their duty correctly, editors will delete them from the list and send the article to another reviewer or to a member of the editorial board to carry out a fast-track review of the manuscript.
The result of the evaluation will be sent to the authors in a maximum period of 3 months from the date of reception
