Peer Review Process

All manuscripts submitted to RAE-EAR go thru the following review process. First, they are assigned to an Associate Editor who quickly determines if the article is suitable to continue the process. If the article is not suited it is returned to the author without further delay. Second, the articles that continue the process are assigned to at least two peer reviewers, who within three months must recommend to the Associate Editor the acceptance of the paper (or its acceptance conditional on minor modifications), suggest important modifications to the paper and postpone the acceptance/rejection decision (aka, revise and resubmit), or the rejection of the article. In all cases each referee prepares a report for the author and, if they consider it necessary, a different one for the Associate Editor.

In the first case, after the author includes the modifications the associate editor of the paper reviews the paper and makes the final decision. In the case of revision and resubmission, the second version of the article is reviewed by the Associate Editor and, if he/she considers it necessary, by the referees. The Associate Editor then determines if the paper is accepted, rejected, or if further modifications are required before making the final decision.

The peer-review process is double-blinded.

The Editorial Board makes every effort so that the first part of the review process, from the article reception until the first decision is communicated to the authors, lasts up to four months.
