Special Issue. Balance of Decentralization in Ibero-America after after four decades

Selection process:  Submitted papers undergo an initial assessment to verify their thematic relevance, format, structure, and readability. 

Evaluation process: All papers must undergo blind peer review, which involves:

Manuscript review by reviewers

  • Two external reviewers send their evaluation of the paper to the Editorial Committee.
  • The Editorial Committee consolidates the reviewers' suggestions and forwards them to the author.
  • In cases of controversy in the evaluation results, the Editorial Committee selects a third reviewer to make the final decision.
  • The entire evaluation process is conducted through double-blind peer review; that is, authors do not know who their reviewers are, and reviewers do not know the authors of the article.
  • Based on the evaluations, the Editorial Committee decides whether:
    • The article is accepted.
    • The article requires minor revisions before acceptance (authors must make the corrections as indicated in the document).
    • The article is rejected.

Publication process: Papers undergo a final review by the Editorial Committee, who verify that all authors have provided the requested information and assess the compliance of the articles. If new observations arise, the articles are sent back to the authors for respective corrections.

The Editorial Committee of the Revista Iberoamericana de Gobierno Local reserves the decision on the order of publication of articles and the issue in which they will appear.
