Peer Review Process

Manuscripts are reviewed by members of the Editorial Board, appropriate referees, and the Executive Editor. The final decision to accept or reject a manuscript is made by the Executive Editor, who will inform authors on acceptance, revision, or rejection of manuscripts. The Executive Editor will send manuscripts for review to appropriate Associate Editors. These Associate Editors will obtain 2 reviews of each manuscript. Reviewers are responsible for critical evaluation to determine whether or not a manuscript meets scientific and literary standards. Where reviewers disagree, the Associate Editor will review the manuscript before recommending acceptance or rejection of it to the Executive Editor, who will be responsible for editing the manuscript. The Associate Editors may also choose to return to the author those manuscripts that require revision to meet format criteria before the critical review. Manuscripts found inappropriate for Phyton will be released to the author by the Executive Editor. Associate Editors must obtain a manuscript reviewed within 2 months. Authors will also have to complete the revision within a 3-month-period. Revisions not returned within 3 months are considered terminated. Authors who consider that their manuscript has received an unsatisfactory review may file an appeal with the Executive Editor, who will review the manuscript.

Periodicity of this Journal is one volume per year, released in December.

The revised version must be accompanied by a separate file containing the responses to each of the questions raised by the reviewers. In addition, all changes made in the text, tables and/or figures of the re-submitted manuscript must be highlighted using an intense, primary color (e.g., red, yellow).
