Peer evaluation process

The manuscripts received by the Enletawa Journal are peer-reviewed and follow the evaluation system (double-blind), that is, the identity of both evaluators and authors is reserved to promote the greatest possible independence in decision-making. The evaluated article may have three (3) results: publishable, publishable with corrections, rejected; when this is considered as publishable with corrections, the author is informed, who decides whether or not to undertake to carry them out; if she/he does not do so, she/he must communicate her/his decision in writing to the Editorial Committee. The evaluation process of the article will last a maximum of two (2) months from the date of receipt, and the jurors will have a maximum period of fifteen (15) calendar days to consider its quality.

The editorial committee is in charge of selecting peer reviewers for article evaluation. These must mostly be external to the editing institution and must have no conflict of interest regarding the article to be reviewed. If the reviewer has a conflict of interest with the research the article emerges from or with the mode of financing, he/she must express his reasons to the editorial committee in written form.

Articles will be evaluated using an evaluation sheet containing questions to be answered according to qualitative evaluation criteria, and checkboxes for the qualification of different academic, scientific, and editorial parameters.

The Editorial Committee will be the one who finally decides the publication or not of the articles and the number of editions in which they will be included.
