1.1. Review of the originals
All original texts received will sometimes be reviewed by double-blind pairs. This implies that the anonymity of the evaluators and of the author or authors is preserved. The evaluation guidelines are as follows:

  • The articles received are reviewed, in the first instance, by the Editorial Committee, which assesses whether it suits the editorial policy of 3Ciencias.
  • In the event that the articles are accepted at the editorial level, they will be evaluated, and they will sometimes be at least two reviews, carried out by two expert evaluators external to the journal assigned by the Editorial Committee according to the content of the articles and the profile and expertise of the experts.
  • Based on these evaluations, the experts send a report to the Council with the results of the evaluations, and the latter decides on the publication of the work once the suggestion of the experts is received. If the author / s specifies to introduce changes in the work, the correction time is 2 months, and count from the day following the sending of the indications. In the event that this deadline is not met, the article will be archived and removed from the process.
  • If the case of the opinions of the reviewers were not unanimous, the Editorial Board will assign a third reviewer to contrast opinions.
  • Ultimately, the Editorial Board makes a decision about the work presented. The result of the decision is communicated to the author or authors in a motivated manner. Finally, it is estimated that the publication time ranges between 2 and 5 months.
