Revision Procedure

The writings submitted for publication in the section "Articles" are subject to a revision procedure which complies with the standards in use for scientific publications at international level and which are accepted by major citation databases.


The Director assigns the job to one member of the Editorial Board, who then takes responsibility and, with the Director, makes a preliminary assessment of the manuscript’s potential for publication. The work passed through for assessment is sent anonymously to two scientific reviewers with recognized expertise in the topic, selected by the Editorial Board, and they will express their overall assessment and an analytical opinion, both of which will be communicated to the author confidentially, to be revealed only to the Editorial Board of the Journal.


The author will also receive suggestions as to the piece’s suitability for publication in line with one of the following four designations:

a) acceptable for publication in its current version.

b) acceptable with minor revisions.

c) potentially acceptable after substantial revision.

d) not acceptable for publication in the journal.


The editorial board’s decision regarding the manuscript’s suitability for publication is sent to the author along with the comments of the reviewers
