Reviewers' Guide

 

The Review process is divided into six steps:

Step 1

The Reviewer has first to indicate to the Editor whether s/he will undertake the review. The decision should be made after reviewing the submission's Abstract, by clicking on the archive name in Step 3.

If unable to do the review. The Reviewer who is unable to do the review clicks on "Unable to do the review" which leads to a standard email to the Section Editor informing the reasons for her/his unavailability (time, competing interests etc).

If able to do the review. The Reviewer who is able to do the review clicks on "Will do the review", which leads to a standard email to the Section Editor informing the acceptance, and the System will communicate the Section Editor and the Author that the review is underway.

Step 2

The Reviewers' Guide has been prepared by the Editorial Board to ensure publicity in the Review process, documenting it as much as possible for Reviewers and Authors.

Step 3

The submitted file will be available for download by the Reviewer at the On-line Submission and Tracking System link. The file should be saved in her/his computer, in a specific folder, so that it can be easily found. These substeps should be executed by using a widely known word processor, such as Word and OpenOffice. The manuscript can be printed out or read on the screen. The Supplementary Files may be useful for the reviewing process, for they may consist of data sets, research tools, source texts, assessment forms, among others.

Step 4

The Reviewer clicks on the Review icon and is presented with two Review text-boxes where the Review can be either entered by hand or pasted. The Reviewer may enter or paste partial reviews into these boxes, saving the content each time s/he makes a change in the text. The Editor may share parts of the Review with the Author, provided that s/he follows possible restrictions imposed by the Reviewer.

Step 5

The Reviewer has the option of uploading files for the Editor and/or the Author to see and, if approppriate, complement the Review. These files may be a Reviewer-annotated version of the submission or some relevant data or other materials that will assist the Editor and/or Author. It will be at the Editor's discretion whether these files are shown to the Author or not, but Reviewers can certainly comment on this in the Review (Step 4).

Step 6

The Reviewer must select a Recommendation for the submission from among the following options: Accept, Revisions Required, Resubmit for Review, Resubmit Elsewhere, Decline Submission, See Comments. When the Reviewer clicks on 'Submit Review to the Editor', s/he is directed to a prepared email to the Section Editor, so that the Editor can see the Recommendation, the saved Review and any uploaded files. The email can be edited by the Reviewer before sending.
