Peer review procedure

With the exception of the contributions included in the editorials, and some occasional essays, all articles – whether invited, in response to a call, or autonomously submitted – undergo a double-blind peer review process. The final decision on publication is taken by the Editorial Board, on the basis of the peer review results. 

When submitting an article, authors are requested to place their name and affiliation on a separate page. Self-identifying citations and references in the article text should either be avoided or left blank when manuscripts are first submitted. Authors are responsible for reinserting self-identifying citations and references when manuscripts are prepared for final submission.

The Board is committed to communicate to authors the results of the review process within four months from the article’s submission.
