Peer Review Process

Social Inclusion has a fast yet rigorous single-blind peer-review process. After an in-house pre-sceening of the manuscript, we carefully select experts in the topic to review and evaluate the submission. We collect at least two reviews from high qualified scholars before sending it for decision to the Editor-in-Chief or one of the Editorial Board members. The usual deadline for a reviewer to submit the report is two weeks. The manuscripts are evaluated according to the originality, scientific soundness, interest to the readers, clarity of presentation and English language level.
