The Reviewing Procedure

Studia Gilsoniana » For Authors » The Reviewing Procedure

  • Two competent and independent reviewers are appointed by the editorial office to review a submitted article. Two positive reviews are needed before an article may be published. In the case of one reviewer recommending an article for publication and the other rejecting it, a third reviewer is appointed to evaluate the text.
  • When papers are submitted in English and Spanish, the nationality of at least one of the reviewers will be different from the nationality of the author.
  • The double-blind review process is used; therefore, the author and the reviewer will be anonymous to each other.
  • Reviewers are not allowed to make use of reviewed articles before their publication.
  • Authors will be informed of the results of the reviewing process in a timely manner.
  • The ultimate decision about the publication of a submitted paper is made by the Editor-in-chief (once two recommendations for publication have been made by the reviewers).
  • The names of reviewers of particular articles are not disclosed. Once a year the journal publishes the general list of reviewers on its website.
  • Reviews culminate in a definite recommendation regarding publication (see attachment below: ARTICLE-REVIEW-FORM).
