2.Evaluation guidelines

JUS only accepts unpublished collaborations with articles submitted in English. It is understood that an article is unpublished when it has not been published in any national or foreign journal and in virtual spaces on the Internet that have the purpose of disseminating scientific work.

The original manuscripts submitted for evaluation are initially appreciated by the JUS Editorial Committee, which will designate an associate editor from the same scientific area responsible for processing the manuscript. In this analysis, the quality requirements for publication in the journal are evaluated, that is, to verify the relevance, coherence and integration of the article in the scientific scope of the journal and to verify if it follows the internal regulation of the journal. After approval by the Associate Editor, he will appoint two reviewers to prepare a report of critical analysis of the manuscript. 

If the decision is in favor of publication, it is up to the Associate Editor responsible to manage the authors' response process to the reviewers and any changes to the manuscript, in accordance with the critical analysis reports. The resulting manuscript version will be sent to the authors for approval of the final version of the document. The final version of the manuscript will later be published in an issue of the journal to be decided by the Editorial Board. The Dissemination Committee will make the proper dissemination of post-publication articles.

If the article is not approved, the Associate Editor will contact the author(s) justifying the reason(s) for which it was not accepted, with the possibility of being approved if the author is willing to make improvements in the aspects where it failed.
