The Editor in Chief and the Editorial Board of Opinio Juris in Comparatione are in charge of the decision of publishing the articles submitted to the Journal. In their decisions, they have to follow the policy and the mission of the Journal.
The Editorial staff, coordinated by the Executive Board, provides a first review to examine the consistency of the submission with the Series, the quality of the arguments and of the writing, the internal consistency concerning citation, quotation and paragraph numbering and the proficiency level of the language in which the contribution is submitted. Then, contributions accepted for review will be sent to up to three independent international reviewers suggested by the Editorial Board (according to the subject matter of the submitted work).The selected international reviewers will be asked to carry out the anonymous (double-blind) peer-review process by completing a review form. The evaluation form is then immediately sent to the author.
The acceptance of the manuscripts is subordinated to the implementation of possible revisions required and to the definitive decision of the Editorial Board.
The Editor in Chief and the Editorial Board are in charge of evaluating the manuscripts on the basis of their scientific content, without discrimination based on race, sex, gender identity, creed, ethnic origin, citizenship, or scientific, academic and political position of the Authors.
