Papers must be submitted via the OJS platform only: no paper sent by email will be accepted. Once submitted, the author will be acknowledged of the paper reception by e-mail. The first phase of the editorial process will evaluate quality and interest of the proposed contribution in consideration of the editorial scope of Revista; and will assess the fulfilment of the stylistic requirements presented in these guidelines. Negative evaluation of these requirement will lead to the exclusion of the manuscript, which will be promptly communicated to the author.
Papers must be submitted anonymously in order to undergo the blind peer-review process. Two scholars among the most eminent experts in the field will review the manuscript. The peer-reviewers will not be members of the editorial committee or its board, but may belong to assessing board. The journal editors will choose the referees in consideration of scientific merits and professional experience. Reviewers will submit a detailed report on the quality, interest, and potential impact of the manuscript, which will be carefully considered by the editorial committee while assessing the manuscript submission. In case of disagreement between the two reports, the manuscript will be submitted to a third referee.
Acceptation and refusal of the manuscript, as well as suggested or required modifications, will be promptly communicated to the author. Inclusion of required modification into the manuscript is conditional to its final acceptation. If considered necessary by the editorial committee, the new version of the manuscript will undergo a further peer-review process before being eventually accepted (or rejected). Authors will be kept appraised throughout the editorial process.
