Therefore, when submitting the manuscript, Authors are requested to fill in, subscribe and submit to the "Copyright and Consent to Publish" form.

Manuscripts Review Process

All manuscripts submitted for publication in European Papers will be subject to a preliminary evaluation of the Editors and, subsequently, to a blind peer review carried out by two reviewers, of which at least one is external (indipendent), designated by the Editors.
At the end of the blind peer review, the manuscript may be considered as follows: accepted without any further revision; accepted with revisions; rejected. In case of manuscript accepted with revisions, the Author will be required to amend the text in accordance with the reviewers’ indications. A deadline for submitting the revised version will be established taking into account the nature and quantity of the requested revisions. Upon receipt of the revised version, the Editors will submit it again to the reviewers asking them for a final approval on publication.
The Editors will inform the Author on the blind peer review’s status and outcome. In any case, the acceptance of a manuscript for European Papers will be communicated to the Author before publication.

The publication of the results of a scientific research is a highly complex procedure, indeed, which impose to all the subjects involved (Board of Editors and Editorial Committee of European Papers, Reviewers and Authors) with particular rigor and accuracy (as far as Editorial Policies and Board of Editors’, Editorial Committee’s, Reviewers’ and Authors’ duties are concerned, see European PapersCode of Ethics”, adopted in conformity with the COPE Guidelines and Core Practices, and European PapersPolicy Screening for Plagiarism”).

European Papers aims at offering a real and immediate open access for academic work (see European PapersOpen Access Statement”), and, provided that public availability is delayed after the end of the double-blind peer-review, also guarantees the possibility to upload accepted manuscript in pdf format to an institutional and/or centrally organized repository for the Authors (see European PapersAuthor Self-archiving Policy”).
