In the case of research papers, the Journal uses a double blind peer review process; the referees who examine papers with a view to possible publication are not aware of the names of the authors who submitted the manuscript. The article is brought to the attention of experts chosen from the scientific board; each work is sent anonymously to avoid possible conditionings. The editors may decide not to submit to any referee articles that don’t fall within Journal’s Aim or do not satisfy the academic standards of the field. The judgments of the referees will be sent to the author even in the event of non-conformity of the article.
