Information for Authors

Submissions will be sent to two referees for assessment, following a blind peer-review policy. In case of disagreement, a third report will be decisive. If the paper is accepted for publication, the authors may be asked to consider the suggestions made by the referees and to bring it into line with our style sheet. The contributions, in its final form, will then go through copyediting, layout, and proofreading. Once published, the authors will receive a copy of the issue in which their work is included.
