Review process

JURA* is a double-blind peer-reviewed academic journal.


All submitted papers enter a first editorial evaluation followed by a peer-review.

The peer-review process respects the originality of the research papers, but it includes changes based on the reviewers' observations in order to preserve the high scientific quality of the publication.

The review process includes the following stages:

1. An initial editorial screening of the topic suitability and paper originality (up to one month).

2. In case of acceptance, the paper is sent for external evaluation to two scientific referees (up to 3 months).

3. After the final revision of the paper, if the peer-review is positive, the paper enters an English proofreading process and the editing for publication (up to 2 months).

4. After its final acceptance, the paper publication takes place in one of the following two issues of JURA (up to one year).


In the view of a second paper submission by the same author/s, each JURA published paper enters a post-publication evaluation considering its citing in other Clarivate Web of Science publications. So that, citing their previously published JURA papers in other Clarivate Web of Science journals is one of the conditions for the same author/s to be considered for publication again in JURA.
