Peer review process

Coodes uses a double-blind peer review system, where neither authors nor reviewers identify with each other, maintaining anonymity on both sides and among the reviewers themselves. The review has a period of between 3 and 4 weeks to send the executive editor his observations and his recommendation (accept sending, publishable with modifications, reevaluable, not publishable). In case the decision of the two arbitrators is divided, the evaluation will be requested to a third referee looking for a consensus in the editorial decision. Subsequently, the executive editor will send an evaluation summary to the author with the decision. In addition, from the same platform can activate the permission for the authors to access the particularized review performed by each reviewer. In case that modifications are required, the author will have a deadline to make them and send a new version. That new version will be submitted to a second round of evaluation. As many rounds will be carried out as required.
