Information to the referees


The participation as a consultant member ad hoc for IPH Magazine happens through invitation and/or indication of the scientific community.
It constitutes a volunteer participation; therefore IPH will not concede any payment. In case of interest, IPH may provide a declaration of participation for the referees for the purpose of résumé qualification.
Referees have total freedom to analyze the texts; however we suggest that the following items receive careful observation:

  1. Adequacy and relevance of the material to IPH's area of expertise.
  2. Clear definition of the core of the study.
  3. Clear definition of the goals of the research.
  4. Appropriate methodology to address the object of the research.
  5. Appropriate and updated bibliography concerning the theme and the object of the research.

Concerning the approval and declination of materials:

(A) Approved without restrictions (straight to publication).

(B) Approved with restrictions (return to the author and then to the same referee for new evaluation before publication until it receives the "approved without restrictions" nomination).

(C) Declined.

Members of the Editorial Policy Committee, the Scientific Editorial Board, Editors and/or Consultants ad hoc cannot participate as authors of scientific articles in the same edition they participate as members, unless the text is part of the magazine's Editorial or is clearly indicated as an institutional text. In case the author wishes to submit a text to double-blind review, he or she must request his or her withdrawn from the board for at least two editions (one before and one after submitting the article), thus guaranteeing the quality and impartiality of the Magazine's evaluations.
