Procedure with submitted articles
All papers submitted to the journal undergo a routine detection of plagiarism through the iThenticate service
All the articles submitted to Financial Theory and Practice are first evaluated by the Editor-in-Chief who can, but does not have to, initiate the double-blind peer reviewing process. The Editor-in-Chief quickly informs the authors about the standing of the article: rejection by the Editor-in-Chief or initiation of the peer-reviewing process. After the peer-reviewing process the Editor-in-Chief decides and informs the authors upon the next steps: revision of the article in accordance with peer-reviewers’ suggestions or rejection of the article.
The form for the peer review of the articles submitted to the journal is available here
