After the manuscript submission deadline is fulfilled, the editors will evaluate if the contribution received is appropriate for the journal before being assigned to one or more of the members of the editorial team in order to find the best reviewers.
SAI has an extended reviewer database that is used for the identification of the most suitable specialists but can appeal to other peer researchers not registered there. The members of the editorial board can be among the reviewers of the annual issue. The referee who does not feel adequate or knows that he/she can not carry out the task within the required time is kindly asked to promptly notify the editorial team.
Each paper is submitted to a rigorous double blind peer-review process, meaning that the author’s name and affiliation are not made public to the referee; in the same manner, the referees’ names and affiliations will not be revealed to the authors. By protecting the identity of the author and the reviewer, the focus will be only on the text and its quality.
The referees must not accept to review articles if they were indirectly and incidentally aware of the author’s name and whether there was a conflict of interest with the author(s).
The reviewers are recommended to make their review on the articles proposed with the clear pedagogical idea that any review must help the author(s) to improve his/her contribution. In case of tie, the final editorial decision is made by the director of the publication after consulting with the editorial team.
The authors are granted the opportunity to revise their manuscript and are request to resubmit their revisions within three weeks at maximum after receiving the notification with the result of the peer-review process.
