Focus and Scope

Working Papers, shall be a permanent platform of discussion and comparison, experimentation and dissemination, promoting the achievement of methodological action-research goals. Working Papers, published in electronic open access with a peer-review process and the manuscripts are accepted in several languages (English, French, Italian, Spanish).

Peer Review Process

The Working Papers Series of the ICSR Mediterranean Knowledge uses the double-blind peer review process: both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. The two anonymous review sheets are sent to the Author for the final adjustments. In case of conflicting evaluations, the article is sent to a third reviewer for the definitive decision: the prevailing choice (acceptance or rejection) is the majority.
