Evaluation, selection and publication

Every original paper received will be sent by the editorial board to at least two readers, who will recommend its publication or not, and may also suggest the introduction of corrections.

The name of the authors will not appear in the copy sent to the evaluators.

Once the reports have been received the editorial board will contact the authors. In case the paper has been approved for publication, the specific date of publication will depend on the configuration of the numbers.

The author will receive a copy of the journal and an electronic copy of his article.

Ethical statement on publication and bad practices

Estudios Filosóficos is strongly committed to guaranteeing the ethics and quality of the articles published following the code of good practices of the Committee of Ethics of Publications (COPE).

Articles are peer-reviewed (double blind peer review). The confidentiality of the evaluation process is guaranteed and the complaints submitted by the authors will be considered.

Texts plagiarized will be removed from the publishing process. By submitting an article to the journal, the authors guarantee that it is original and has not been previously published in another medium.

The article will be evaluated according to its philosophical content, its scientific methodology, its originality and its contribution to the discipline. The editor will communicate to the author the decision of publishing the article (and, if appropriate, the suggested changes) or not, based on the reports of the evaluators. If the article requires major changes, the editorial board will determine whether those submitted by the author are sufficient for publication.
