Peer Review Process

Documents submitted to Revista Ingeniería - Journal of Tropical Engineering are subject to an initial editorial screening followed by a peer-review process. For the second, all reviewers are selected from context that avoids academic endogamy. In spite of the latter, the editorial board may request reviewers suggested by authors to perform the review process.

After a positive decision, which takes place approximately 30% of the time during 2015, authors are contacted in order to perform the changes, suggestions and modifications from the reviewers and in some cases a second review is necessary. After a general agreement, manuscripts are sent to production to be published in digital format. A selection of manuscripts is published in printed form and only after editorial acceptance, a manuscript can be considered "in press". 

All documents submitted to the journal will be archived according to institutional policies. Also, authors are reminded that submission to this journal simply constitutes a request for initial review process and thus, the journal is not obliged to publish the research.
