Peer Review Process

The selection process of works to be considered for publication involves an evaluation by the Editorial Committee and reports from ad hoc experts, double blind as described below.

The original manuscripts submitted for evaluation are initially assessed by the Editorial Committee of SEMIN-CIEN. AGRAR.. In this analysis, quality requirements for publication in the journal are evaluated, among which: scope; adherence to the journal’s standards; text quality; theoretical foundation; up-to-date literature; methodology coherence and precision; contribution and relevance of results, discussion about the observed data, figure, and table presentation; originality; and consistency of conclusions.

If the number of works worthy of merit is higher than the capacity of evaluation and publication by Semin: Cien. Agrar., a comparison between the submitted manuscripts is performed. Those found to have greater potential to contribute to the scientific advancement are analyzed by at least two scientific advisors, who are ad hoc experts in the subject area of the manuscript, without author(s) disclosure. The manuscripts that are rejected according to the above criteria are sent back to the authors
