Peer Review Process

The Editor checks if the submitted material conforms to the editorial line of the journal. If it is, the article is submitted to a peer review system, using at least two (02) reviewers or external evaluators, so that within a maximum of fifteen days they express their opinions (according to the "Opinion"), recommending the acceptance or rejection of the article. If the article does not conform to the editorial line, the Editor reserves the right to send a report to the author to change or redo his article, in whole or in part, the authors having to start the process of sending their work again. In the worst case, the manuscript is rejected and communicated to the authors, attaching a report with the reasons for the refusal. The names of the reviewers are kept anonymous to the author (s) throughout the process. Although, to facilitate arbitration, authors may submit a list of four (4) possible reviewers, specialists in the subject matter, with their respective e-mail addresses.
