Review Process

The works received are reviewed by the editorial team, which checks if the article meets the formal criteria and the scope of the journal. If these criteria are met, the editors assign the review of the article to two external peer reviewers through the "double blind peer review" system. In case of discrepancy, the editors will assign a third peer reviewer.

Once the article has been reviewed, each external reviewer submits an evaluation report in which s/he recommends accepting the article, making changes and improvements or rejecting the manuscript. At this point, the decision is sent to the author/s. If the peer reviewer requires the author/s to make minor or major changes, a new version of the work including all the recommendations must be submitted. The editorial team, according to the initial assessments made in the aforementioned reports, will evaluate the revised version of the manuscript.

The peer reviewers play a central role in guaranteeing the quality and integrity of the journal. The peer review process depends largely on the trust and voluntary participation of the academic community and requires that all those involved act in a responsible and ethical manner. PPSR invites its reviewers to follow the guidelines published in the HEC’s Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers and referred to in our Ethical Guidelines.

Proofreading. The authors themselves will do the revision of the proofreading within the period indicated by the Editors. In the case where the author does not respond within the stipulated period, the Editorial Team will carry out the revision.

Responsibility: PPSR will not be responsible for the ideas and opinions expressed in the published works. The full responsibility will be of the author/s.
