Statement Policy Review

Peer Review Process and Editorial Decision

All submitted manuscripts by the authors will be read by the editorial staff. If the results of the manuscript evaluation by the editor do not comply with the author guidelines, the manuscript is immediately returned to the author. If the manuscript complies with the author guidelines, it will proceed to the double-blind peer review system. The editors then make a decision based on the reviewer’s recommendation, with several possibilities: rejected, requires major revision, needs minor revision, or accepted.

The Editor in Chief has the authority to decide which articles will be published in the Sovereign: International Journal of Law.

Review Process:

  • The author submits the manuscript;
  • Editor’s evaluation [some manuscripts are rejected or returned before the review process];
  • The double-blind review system;
  • Editor’s decision;
  • Confirmation to the authors.
