  3. Sending of the manuscript without the author’s name to the evaluators.
  4. Receipt of the evaluation with the evaluator’s recommendations. The recommendations may be the following: Accepted as submitted; Accepted on the condition that the revisions signaled by the evaluator on this sheet are made; Rejected.
  5. If both evaluations are negative, the manuscript is not accepted for publication.
  6. If there are discrepancies between the assessments of the evaluators, the manuscript is submitted to a third evaluator who is selected in the same way as the previous ones. The decision to publish is based on the majority opinion of the evaluators.
  7. Sending of a letter to the author with the anonymous evaluations and informing of the decision to publish or not publish according to the evaluations.
