Peer Review Process

Once you submit your manuscript, it will be assigned to a member of our Editorial Board, who will read it and make a decision about whether it is appropriate for Aigne. If the manuscript is accepted it will then be sent to external reviewers through the online Open Journal System, thus guaranteeing anonimity at all times. Reviewers are not identified to the authors unless specifically requested by the referee.

Following our peer review guidelines, the reviewer will read the manuscript and make one of the following decisions:

___    Accept without modification
___    Accept with minor changes
___    Ask for resubmission following major revision
___    Reject

When the reviewer has decided that changes should be made to a manuscript, the author will have the opportunity to prepare a revision within the deadlines specified. The revised manuscript will be sent either to the same reviewers or to new ones, depending on what is deemed appropriate by the editor. The revision should include an explanation of the major changes undertaken.

Once the revision process has ended satisfactorily, your paper will be accepted for publication and your editor will be in contact about the final dates of appearance.
