Manuscripts are subject to preliminary review by the Editor-in-chief in order to check their coherence with the subjects of interest of the Review. Subsequently, the manuscripts which appear in the sections «Articoli», «Varietà» and «Note a sentenza» are subject to assessment by referees with the double blind peer review process: the manuscripts which appear in the sections «Attualità» and «Osservazioni a sentenza» are subject to assessment by referees with the blind peer review process, assuring in each cases anonymity of authors and referees.
The evaluation process is conducted by two experts in the subject matter, selected by the Editor-in-chief preferably from who hold or have held the position of tenured university professor in an Italian university or an equivalent position in a foreign university.
The referee reports will take into consideration the following parameters: width of articulation and critical analysis; completeness of sources and bibliography.
On the basis of these parameters, the referees can conclude in their reports that the manuscript is:
a) publishable without changes;
b) publishable subject to changes;
c) to be substantially redrafted;
d) to be refused.
The review process will be made so that each author will receive the decision, if possible, 20 days after submission of the manuscript, drafted according to the editorial guidelines. In case of disagreement between the two referees, the Editor-in-chief may decide that the manuscript is to be published, or the Editor-in-chief, in particular cases, will timely appoint a third referee to evaluate the manuscript.
The Editor-in-chief may decide not to submit to evaluation requested manuscripts or of particularly prestigious authors.
