Peer review

Received contributions will be submitted by the Editorial Board to blind reviewers for judgment. The author will be notified within three months of whether his/her work has been accepted for publication and, whether it will be necessary to make any changes. In the case of a negative response, the author will be given an anonymous summary of the reviewer’s decision. The evaluation process is suspended during the month of August.

Peer-reviewers will evaluate the article according the following criteria:

  1. relevance of the text to the scientific field of IUS 11 (legal discipline of the religious phenomenon, ecclesiastical law, canon law, history and systems of Church/State relations, history of religious institutions, religious comparative law, law of confessional pluralism, etc.: cf. Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research, Ministerial Decree of 7 June 2012 No. 76);
  2. critical knowledge of doctrine and related jurisprudence;
  3. methodological correctness;
  4. clarity in exposition;
  5. originality.

Evaluation of the article can lead to the following results:

  1. publishable, subject to potential modifications according to the journal’s editorial criteria;
  2. publishable after making a few indicated corrections;
  3. publishable only after adequate re-elaboration (the reasons for which are to be justified);
