The proposed articles are sent to two members of the Review Committee, formed by external evaluators, or not, to the Cuban Society of Stomatology. In the event of a discrepancy of opinion between the two reviewer pairs initially convened, a third reviewer will be invited with a criterion of opinion. The decision of approval, revision or rejection is communicated by the section editor or editors to the author. In case of rejection, the section editor sends the results of the evaluation form to the contact author with the suggestions of the peer reviewers regarding the improvements that could be applied to the article. If accepted, the article goes through the editorial format review and the Advisory Committee.
