The receipt of a manuscript does not constitute an obligation on the part of the Editorial Board to publish it, nor does it constitute a commitment to the release date.
All manuscripts submitted to Perspectivas en Nutrición Humana are peer-reviewed in a double-blind process in which both the authors and reviewers remain anonymous throughout the review. Evaluators are selected based on experience, reputation, and recommendation by their academic peers.
The manuscript evaluation procedure is as follows. When a manuscript arrives to Perspectivas en Nutrición Humana, a member of the Editorial Board analyzes the manuscript to verify compliance with the requirements of the Journal and to assess the quality of the article. The manuscript is then discussed with the Editorial Board, who may decide to reject it based on lack of interest or more specific deficiencies. If there are needed some changes, authors are notified. Manuscripts that meet the requirements of the Editorial Board are sent out for review by two national or international academic peer, who must give a written concept in the established format for this, through the platform Open Journal System. If there is disagreement between the first two reviewers, then the manuscript is sent to a third reviewer. The expert reviewers make recommendations based on academic rigor, whether the manuscript meets the objectives of the Journal, and the overall quality of the manuscript. Finally, the reviewers make one of three conclusions: accept unchanged, accept conditionally, or reject.
Manuscripts accepted conditionally are returned to authors with a letter requesting the authors to make specific changes and to provide an explanation if specific suggestions are not be followed. The authors must send the new version using the platform within 10 (ten) calendar days since the date of notification. After receiving the revised manuscript, the editor inspects the changes and then either accepts or rejects the manuscript.
