Reviewing process

Cadernos de Fraseoloxía Galega applies a double-blind peer review process to all the contributions in which the reviewers do not belong to our editorial board. As stated before, the deadline is March, 1 (any delay must be duly justified). Articles submitted before the deadline that meet the minimum criteria to be published will be anonymized and sent to two reviewers that are expert in the field who must issue a report on:

A contribution will be published if the two reports are positive. If just one of the reviews suggests its publication, then the contribution will be sent to a third reviewer, whose assessment will be considered irrevocable. If the reports recommend the publication only if it is modified, authors must undertake the suggested changes within ten (10) days, if possible. Also, if authors wish to make an statement against the suggested modifications, the same time limit applies. Once the modified contribution has been received, the Editorial Board will agree on its publication or its final rejection. Editors may make slight amendments to the submited contributions with the sole purpose of correcting typographical or linguistic errors.
