Euphrosyne considers independent evaluations of submissions highly important.
When an article arrives at Euphrosyne‘s office, it receives a ‘process number’ by which it is identified during the entire peer-review process. It will then be submitted to a double-blind peer review system. The first round of evaluation is carried out by the members of the Editorial Commitee, who not only examine the content of the article in respect of its subject matter but also checks to see if it conforms to Euphrosyne‘s mission and objectives. The article is either accepted for submission to a referee or rejected if it is deemed either to be outside the scope of subject matter that is suitable for Euphrosyne or if its quality is considered obviously to be substandard. An articles accepted for submission is forwarded for a more demanding review to established scholars who are specialists in the research area of the article.
Each article is sent to two independent and anonymous referees (Portuguese and/or foreign experts), who are asked to classify the article as being publishable, publishable with amendments and improvements, or not publishable. The classification ‘publishable with amendments and improvements’ is by far the most common decision reached. If both peer reviewers agree upon the article’s acceptance or refusal, the editors’ decision regarding publication is made in accordance with one of these recommendations. If the reviewers suggest improvements to the submitted article, the author is invited to revise and resubmit the article. If the two referees disagree, the article is usually sent to a third referee.
Authors are expected to submit original articles. These articles must not be submitted simultaneously to other journals.
The Board and the Editor are responsible for ensuring the quality of the articles. In the case of disagreement between referees regarding a submitted article, the members of the Board and the Editor will discuss the issues involved and make a decision regarding its publication.
The reviewers will assess the articles as objectively as possible and will offer guidelines for revision when necessary.
