Who will review my article?
At least two people check every manuscript. Most of the time, they are experts on the field who fill-out an evaluation and provide a concept. In case the evaluations of the two reviewers are at variance, a third reviewer will be required. If a manuscript goes through those filters, it might be checked by an editor, and two proofreaders (one for English, and one for Spanish). For further information, visit the section Peer Review Process.
