- Studia Philologica Valentina (ISSN 1135-9560) is an international peer reviewed journal publishing original research contributions on the main filed of Classical Studies and other related disciplines. The publishing criterion for the submissions received is only based on its scientific methodology and results.
- Every contribution received will be reviewed by the editorial board, who make a preliminary reading and a report, consulting if necessary members of the scientific committee, to submit the paper to a double-blind peer review process. The referees won’t have any information about the author, nor the author will know the identity of the referees at any moment. In addition, the two referees will not belong to the same institution as the author nor there will exist any direct relationship between them (coauthors, thesis advisor, members of the same research group…). The article will be accepted if both reviews are positive. In case of discrepancies, a new review will be asked to a third referee. Further information can be read in Ethics & Malpractice Statement
