RBGI Peer Review Process

The evaluation is carried out blindly by peers (double blind peer review), with an Editorial Board and an Advisory Board to assist in the publication's editorial policies. Preliminarily, the articles are evaluated by an editor to verify the suitability of the article with the journal's editorial line. The evaluation is carried out by at least two reviewers: according to the reviews, the editor may request the evaluation of a third party.

The final acceptance of the articles will depend on the following criteria:

  • Reviewers' recommendations;
