Peer Review Process

After submitting a paper, it will be peer-reviewed.
All our journals are peer-reviewed. Reviewers are appointed by the journal editor.

Peer review has two key functions: 
- To act as a filter and determine the validity, significance and originality of the work to ensure only good research is published. 
- To improve the quality of research submitted for publication by giving reviewers the opportunity to suggest improvements.

The submission process

Each submitted paper is subjected to the following review procedure:
- Preliminarly, the Plagiarism Pevention Office (plagiarismprev@praiseworthyprize.org) checks each submission through the Ithenticate’s CrossCheck software, in order to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts (click here to find out more about CrossCheck for Researchers), comunicating the results of the test to the Editor-in-Chief of the journal only in the case of abnormal percentage of similarity;
- the Editor-in-Chief, if not in conflict of interest, decides for general publication suitability;
- in case of conflict of interest, the Editorial Office invites an Editor (Helper editor) to handle the paper;
- the Editor-in-Chief (or the Helper Editor) invites 3 Reviewers to perform an independent review of the article; 
- the Journal adopts a double-blind peer review: the Reviewers are unaware of the identity of the Authors, and the Authors are unaware of the identity of the Reviewers;
- taking care of the recommendations of the Reviewers, the Editor-in-Chief (or the Helper Editor) decides whether the particular article may be accepted as it is, or it may be revised or rejected;
- the Editor contact the Corresponding Author by email with the editorial decision, Editor comments and Reviewer comments. Authors will be requested to revise their manuscript according to the Reviewers' suggestions, comments and criticisms;
- the revised manuscript must be returned within one month and the review process begins again.
