AMBIENTE & SOCIEDADE PAPER EVALUATION PROCESS
Paper evaluation process is as follows:
(1) Initial Screening: Assistant editors screen the paper for compliance with publishing rules listed online. Within this phase there is no paper rejection, editors only suggest modifications to the authors according to the editorial criteria*. The sooner the author suits its paper to the changes solicited, the quicker the evaluation process will be.
(2) Pre-analysis: The paper will pass through the sieve of the editor-in-chief and assistant editors. Within this stage, some requirements are analyzed, such as relatedness to the scope of the journal, originality, method consistency, and interdisciplinary discussion. There is paper rejection within this phase. Evaluation proceeds without author identification.
(3) Designation: Should the papers be approved at the pre-analysis stage, they will be designated to the associate editors. These are responsible for following up the evaluation and indicate peer referees who will proceed with the paper revision.
(4) Evaluation: In this final stage, the paper is evaluated by a pair of referees using double-blind methodology. In some cases, it undergoes the evaluation of further referees if the decision is tied. It is quite common for the evaluators to suggest a series of adjustments, and again, the sooner the author delivers the adjustments, the faster the analysis process.
Should the paper be approved at stage 4, it will be accepted for publishing in a yet to be determined journal number.
