Publication Process

The stage before starting the editorial process consists of reviewing the manuscript to verify that it belongs to the scope of the journal and that it complies with the instructions for authors. When these conditions are met, the Editorial Committee sends the manuscript to the next stage of the editorial process. When these conditions are not met, the manuscript is returned to the corresponding author, informing him/her of the situation. Indeed, given the high volume of manuscripts for publication, we are only able to edit those that fully comply with the editorial policy and instructions for authors. 

Once these preconditions have been verified, the editorial process begins. The manuscript is considered as "received" and the date of receipt of the manuscript is recorded. At this stage, the manuscript is sent to a minimum of two referees or reviewers, in a double-blind system. The referees evaluate the manuscript according to the guidelines provided by the journal. The referees' response may be: publish with minor modifications, publish with major modifications or not publish. The referees' observations are evaluated by the Editorial Committee, which informs the corresponding author in writing of the decision to continue or not the publication process. When the manuscript is "accepted", the Editorial Committee sends the corresponding author a letter of acceptance of the manuscript, indicating the type of modification required. Within a maximum period of four weeks, the corresponding author must return a modified version to the journal, so that the Editorial Committee can analyze the corrected manuscript. Papers are published in order of date of acceptance.

A contribution may be rejected by the Editorial Committee at any stage of the publication process. Papers published in BOSQUE are licensed under the Creative Commons Chile 2.0 license.
