The articles published in REA undergo a double-blind peer review. The international relevance of the data to be published and the significant contribution to the advancement of knowledge are major requirements. Submissions are first evaluated by the Editor and by the members of the Editorial Boards. If the manuscript is considered suitable for publication, it is sent to at least two reviewers. The peer review process is double-blind, whereby both referees and authors are kept anonymous. If the reviews are positive, but the manuscript requires to be revised and resubmitted, the author is expected to submit the revised version.
