Evaluation process

The proposal is submitted to a preliminary evaluation by the Editorial Board in order to determine whether it fits in the thematic and editorial policy, as well as if it complies with the norms of the REVISTA del CELSA.

The articles that pass successfully the preliminary evaluation are sent, after deletion of the data of the author(s), to two external experts. The names of the reviewers will not be revealed. Once a year, a complete list of reviewers of a given issue will be published on the website of the Journal.

During the evaluation process, the identity of both, the authors and the reviewers (according to the double-blind review process principle) will be kept secret. The review is made in an application form specially created for these purposes that contains the clause where the reviewer clearly indicates his/her recommendations for acceptance or rejection of the proposal. The Editor-in-Chief  makes the final decision on publishing the paper.

The evaluation process is free.

The principles governing the evaluation procedure correspond to internationally recognized standards recommended by the Polish authorities (Communication of the Polish Ministry of Science and Education on the Criteria and Form of Evaluation of Scientific Journals issued on 29 May of 2013).
