Arbitration or peer review process
Arbitration or peer review process

Any article received for publication will be submitted to an initial evaluation by its Director, verifying the originality and quality of the work, compliance with the redaction rules, and the pertinence of the subject.

The Journal Director is entitled to reject an article when it does not correspond to the subject and scientific perspective of the journal, when the writing norms are seriously violated, or if their quality is manifestly inferior to the required scientific standards.

If the Journal Director considers the work in principle admissible, he will inform the Editorial Council, who will carry out a new substantive examination. In case of confirming the admission, the council will send it to two referees or specialists (external) for its consideration, who can be members of the International Scientific Council, or other external experts, according to the needs and availability.

The evaluation will be anonymous. If the reports of the specialists are favorable, the Editorial Council will decide its publication. Otherwise, it will opt for rejection. If minor modifications have been suggested, the author will be asked to enter them.

The author will receive the results of the reports in a timely manner according to the criteria of relevance or timeliness of the subject, redaction, originality, argumentative and conclusive soundness, and use of bibliographic sources, among other criteria.

Once the publication is approved, the article will enter the editing and publication process.

The essays, comments of jurisprudence and reviews do not require arbitration. Only properly scientific articles are subject to evaluation by peer reviewers.
