Manuscripts Review Process
All manuscripts submitted for publication in European Papers will be subject to a preliminary evaluation of the Editors and, subsequently, to a blind peer review carried out by at least two reviewers designated by the Editors.
At the end of the blind peer review, the manuscript may be considered as follows: accepted without any further revision; accepted with revisions; rejected. In case of manuscript accepted with revisions, the Author will be required to amend the text in accordance with the reviewers’ indications. A deadline for submitting the revised version will be established taking into account the nature and quantity of the requested revisions. Upon receipt of the revised version, the Editors will submit it again to the reviewers asking them for a final approval on publication.
The Editors will inform the Author on the blind peer review’s status and outcome. In any case, the acceptance of a manuscript for European Papers will be communicated to the Author before publication.
