Peer Review Process

All manuscripts submitted to RHSM, except for book reviews, are evaluated through a double-blinded peer review (by a Peer Review Committee) based on the evaluation guidelines approved by the Scientific Council.The Peer Review Committee is comprised of both local and international renowned specialists with extensive research experience.Once reports from the blind reviewers are received, the Editorial Staff will decide whether a manuscript is approved or rejected for publication through the following statements: 

  1. Approved for publication.
  2. Approved for publication with modifications of certain aspects indicated by reviewers.
  3. The article is rejected for publication.

If reviewers request some corrections, the author will have twenty working days to make the necessary changes. If this deadline is not met, the publication of the paper will be subject to the decision of the Editors depending on the editing times of the Journal. In addition, it must be noted that the approval of a manuscript does not imply its immediate publication.The General Editor of the journal will acknowledge receipt of the manuscripts within fifteen working days from their reception.This review system implies that each article is evaluated by two members external to the Editorial Board. The reviewers will have thirty working days to evaluate the paper. In case of split decision, a third reviewer will be consulted.Authors are requested to attach a summary curriculum vitae and a declaration of originality to the manuscript.
