Manuscript evaluation

Manuscripts are evaluated by at least two reviewers with the following criteria:

  1. Novelty    
  2. Relevance of findings
  3. Technical correctness
  4. Figures and Tables quality
  5. English correctness
  6. Relevance of the bibliography

A reviewer’s report completes the assessment, detailing the study's strengths and weaknesses in as much detail as possible with the aim of helping the authors to amend their article. The reviewer may conclude that the article should be rejected: in this case, a clear, well-argued explanation will be provided to the authors.
