Peer review process

Selection system. All the articles presented to the journal shall be submitted to a “double blind” selection process that will be carried out with the help of expert external peer reviewers on each subject. The participation of reviewers will be madead honorem, and we expect it to be assumed as an act of scholarly reciprocity seeking to collaborate in a constructive manner to strengthen (and validate) the research and contributions of other colleagues within the field. In the case of reviews, which are diffusion documents, they may be checked by the editor himself or by other members of the editorial team of the journal. Their publication will be decided based on their thematic and textual coherence, their relevance for the field, or according to the relevance of the proposed discussion.

Profile of the evaluators. The peers of Ingeniería Solidaria are external to the journal and will have at least a master’s level and published production in the area on which they will be asked to review texts.

Evaluators. Journal evaluators are expected to do a detailed and  constructive reading of each article they accept to review, seeking to not only give a recommendation of approval or rejection to the editor, but also enable authors, through their comments, to improve their texts and reflect on the scope, possibilities or shortcomings of their writings. Additionally, evaluators must consider that the texts entrusted to them by the editor are unpublished, and any improper or unauthorized use of the information contained therein would imply a serious unethical conduct. Moreover, the responsibility of evaluating a work, once accepted, cannot be transferred to third parties, especially if this has not been justified or previously consulted with the editor. Finally, any conflict of interest identified by the evaluator after receiving a work that may undermine their independence in the preparation of an opinion must be informed.
