The journal publishes previously unpublished articles. The authors commit not to submit to other journals simultaneously. However articles based on original results available online in an open archive in the form of a working paper may be submitted.

Articles must conform to the instructions for authors available on the journal’s website and sent in an anonymized version to be forwarded to the reviewers.

Proposed articles are to be sent via e-mail as indicated on the contact page.

Within 30 days, the editorial board will appraise the admissibility of each proposal according to the scientific criteria applying for articles in the humanities and social sciences, as well as according to the criteria of aesthetic quality and the contributions’ artistic nature (images logbook, film script, etc.). The editorial may reject, without forwarding them to the reviewers, all articles not meeting the editorial line of the journal or the content of the section in which it is to appear.

Each proposal appraised positively will undergo a double-blind evaluation procedure carried out by a member of the editorial board and an external reviewer selected by the editorial board. The reviewers will make use of the evaluation grid available on the journal’s website. The coordinator of each issue, who is a member of the editorial board, will write up a synthesis of the opinions expressed on the article. The author revises his or her contribution taking into account the recommendations of the reviewers by indicating the amendments requested

At the end of the revision process, which may include several phases, the contribution will be accepted or rejected.

The evaluation will be closely followed up by the editorial committee, and the ensuing editorial work will be conducted in collaboration with the editor and the editorial secretary.

Authors and members of the committee commit to highlighting any errors that may have gone unnoticed before publication, so that they may be corrected within a reasonable time.
