Peer review process

Review Process

The peer-review process of the publications for Philosophy and Canon Law is the following:

The Editorial staff rates a proposed paper, and decides whether to consider the paper for review or not.
After the preliminary acceptance, the paper is sent to the referee of the 1st level.
Next, the paper is sent to the referee of the 2ndlevel.
The both above-mentioned referees are not affiliated with the author’s institution. Thus, the rules of the double-blind review process are applied.
The reviews are prepared in writing according to the format provided by the journal.
After the positive evaluation done by the two referees, the article is forwarded for the publishing process.
It can happen that the author would be asked to make some changes in the paper or accept the changes made by the Editorial staff.
