Author Guidelines

Submission is free, so anyone can send a paper that will be revised according to the journal’s rules. Articles submitted for consideration may not exceed 40,000 characters (including spaces) in length, including references, abstract and keywords. The abstract (maximum 1500 characters, including spaces) must be also provided in English, as must the five keywords. Abstracts in English and articles in English must be written/edited by a native speaker to qualify for publication.

Languages accepted: Italian, English (preferred).

The journal accepts original articles that have not been published elsewhere and have not been simultaneously submitted to other journals for consideration.

Prospective authors must first register on the website and then login to upload their submissions to the journal’s online platform.

The paper MUST BE ANONYMOUS (also the filename), the authors name and affiliation must not appear near the title, on the references or their biographical notes.

All submissions are subjected to a double-blind peer review process.

Peer-review process: As soon as submissions are received, they are sent to two anonymous reviewers who have been selected based on their specific areas of expertise and research interests. Within 30 days, the reviewers will send their reports on the submission to the coordinator of the peer-review process, providing one of three possible ratings: A ("approved"), B ("approved with amendments"), C ("not approved").

As a result, the paper will be: (A) sent to the editor for publication; (B) returned to the author with recommended changes - once the changes have been made, the paper will be eligible for publication; (C) rejected.

Papers that do not meet the journal’s editorial standards will be rejected without being sent out for peer review.
