Peer Review Process

THEORIA is a peer-reviewed journal. According to its topic, each paper is assigned by the Editors to the competent area editor. This latter will choose two external referees. They will provide a report on a blind version of the paper and, on this basis, the area editor will make the final decision about publication. We will try to make a decision on every paper within eight weeks.


Publication Frequency

THEORIA is a four-monthly journal (issues in January, May and September).
