The role of Section Editors (or of a Guest Editors) implies the managing of the submitted papers according to the following procedure:
- After the submission, the plagiarism/autoplagiarism and the topic compatibility checks are performed by the Editor in Chief.
- If the plagiarism/autoplagiarism and the topic compatibility checks are passed, the Editor in Chief will send the paper to the “Review” stage; The Section (or Guest) editor must manage the reviewing process (two reviewers will be sufficient; more reviewing rounds are possible) inviting the reviewers and taking the decisions (reject, revise, accept), mainly considering the following parameters:
o Scientific content;
o Paper organization;
o Figures quality;
o Paper pagination (submitted papers must be prepared according to the authors' guidelines using the journal template)
- The Section Editor “duties” have an end with the final decision (Reject, Accept).
