Peer review process

No sooner the text is received, a member of the Editorial Board makes a first quick look at it to ensure that the paper meets the basic requirements to be published. In that case, he/she e-mails to the author to confirm the reception of the submission. Then the work is sent for peer review to two senior legal historians who are selected in accordance with the subject of the research. The author and the reviewers are unknown to each other. The Editorial Board member notifies the result of the peer review to the author, which might be i) positive; ii) positive, but with recommendations for some amendments; and iii) negative. If one review was positive and the other one negative, the paper is sent to a third reviewer, who makes the final decision. The whole process does not take longer than two months.
