Evaluation Process

Empirical researches and theoretical studies will be double-blind refereed. Every contribution received for publication is firstly considered by the Director as to its pertinence to the scope and aims of the Series and then assigned to two anonymous referees for review. Referees are selected by the Editorial Board in view of guaranteeing maximum competence of the referees and fairness in the reviewing process. In case of conflicting reviews, the paper will be sent to a third referee. The outcome of the referral is determined by a majority choice.  Evaluation process will end within one month of receiving the contribution.
