Reviews are normally invited by the Editors. However, the Editors welcome
suggestions for reviews considered suitable for the Journal. Be aware that the
topics in the reviews must be numbered
with Arabic numerals.
In order to help the
Editors judge the suitability of a proposed review, authors should submit:
A synopsis including a brief outline of the Review
At least ten sample references;
A summary of the lead author's academic
A statement explaining the relevance of the
topic to be reviewed and a list of the latest reviews published on the subject,
An estimated date of submission. If the text
is already prepared, an authorization for submission will be given after the above
items have been considered by the Editors.
Acceptance of the
synopsis does not guarantee publication of the final manuscript.
If the synopsis is
accepted, the corresponding author will be invited to submit online the
complete text of the review, together with a short CV and a photograph of each author,
inserted in the end of manuscript.
It is quite common,
in reviews, the reproduction of figures, schemes and photos already published
in other works. Even if these materials have been published by the same authors,
copyright permissions need to be given by the editorial office.
