The author may decide, where appropriate, to divide the REFERENCES section into several sections with citation criteria other than the general ones: e.g., include a Webography or a list of Primary Sources (ancient, medieval) whose order does not have to follow to the instructions given in previous paragraphs.

Editorial Quality

  • The peer review process is rigorous in order to ensure the quality of the content published in the journal. We except the authors to revise their texts following the suggestions of the referees. If the authors do not perform such reviews and do not submit comments back, the manuscript will be definitely rejected.
  • Some manuscripts may be of excellent quality, but be poorly written in English. This may be the case for authors whose native language is not English. In this case, we could request the authors to re-write the article completely, independent of the final punctuation the article may have obtained. We have an editorial service that can be hired by the authors to improve the writing expression of the article.
