The process of publishing articles in the magazine Architecture and Urbanism includes several levels of review. The quality assurance of this process rests heavily on the work of the reviewers or referees, who are responsible for reading materials submitted by publishers and emit their critical comments and recommendations.
Items received are initially evaluated by the editorial board to ensure compliance with the minimum requirements. The preliminary acceptance criteria are:
If passed this preliminary test, the items are sent to two reviewers who must evaluate them as confidential and anonymous, which is known as peer review. This means that the document sent to the arbitrator do not have the names of the authors, their general data nor any information that allow the identification. Neither the referees know the identity of the other reviewer.
The referee should give their opinions on the basis of a model that contains the following:
After receiving the criteria of the two referees, the editorial board reconciles both reports and contacts the authors to let them know the results of the review, in order to make corrections. From that time the author has a month to readjust the article.
In the majority of cases the editors make the final decision confronting the material returned by the author, with reports from the referees, but it may happen that required another round of review.
Referees are renowned professionals active in each of the themes of the magazine and are assessed annually to be ratified or not in their duties in accordance with their participation in the review process. In each issue, the specialists who acted as reviewers are included as part of the scientific advisory board of the journal.
Reviewers must do their work to the attention of the ethical obligations of the arbitrators, which appear within the guidelines for their work (See On the work of the referees). These regulations require the principle of confidentiality and a commitment of not to use the content of the work reviewed, among other important requirements.
The views and opinions of each paper are those of the author.The editorial board does not accept jobs that do not meet publication standards.
