Since the year of 2014, the Revista Portuguesa de Filosofia introduced a Pre-evaluation system for all articles that are submitted for publication. With the steady increase in the number of texts submitted to the Journal (currently between 200-300 items per year), the Editorial Team was forced to enter a first stage of selection. During the Pre-evaluation Articles are filtered from the state of Accepted and Non-accepted. The state of Accepted leads the text to the next phase which will be the peer review, while the Non-accepted is immediately rejection and the authors informed (with no formal notification with a report). The author whose article has received Accepted classification in the pre-evaluation is not informed of it.
The Revista Portuguesa de Filosofia selects and evaluates the texts received (Accepted in the Pre-evaluation) by peer review, according to the double-blind system of evaluation.
Two referees will elaborate opinions concerning the text proposed for publication and give reasons for its acceptance (with or without revision) or rejection. They will hold in particular regard originality, timeliness and scholarly relevance, adequacy of methodology, consistency of argument, theoretical and/ or empirical grounding, clarity, and correct use of language.
Authors will be notified of evaluation results and the specific recommendations – if any – of the referees. If the text is conditionally accepted, authors should make the suggested revisions by the deadline indicated.
There is no possibility to appeal the result of evaluation.
