IPS Peer-Review Policy


IPS adopts a system of double-blind peer review. The process is based on two main stages. In the first stage, the journal's Editorial Board reviews submitted manuscripts and proposals: only manuscripts of sufficient quality that meet the aims and scope of IPS will be reviewed.

All manuscripts accepted for review and publication are then submitted to double-blind peer review, which implies that each manuscript is shared (in full anonimity of the author(s)) with at least two anonymous reviewers, previously selected for a pool of independent academics, scholars and experts appointed because of their specific expertise and academic or practice record.
