Editorial policies

The topic of each issue of the journal is established by the editorial board with the advice of an International Scientific Committee. The editorial board appoints one or more editors for each issue. The editors can be chosen either among the members of the editorial staff or among external scholars. Thus each issue of the journal is supported by the scientific supervision of an expert on the subject in question. The journal adopts a peer-review process using double-blind refereeing (see Code). To find out the modalities of the blind review process please see this page. The papers published by Lo Sguardo are divided into the following categories:

Articles:

This category indicates the scientific papers produced and submitted only by invitation. All contributions of this section are subjected to a double peer blind review.

Contributions: 

This category indicates the scientific papers produced and submitted in response to the call for papers published in each issue of the journal. All contributions of this section are subjected to a double blind peer review.

Interviews: 

This category indicates interview essays and interviews with authors of significant works and with leading figures in the contemporary philosophical panorama.

Texts:

Under this category are published first Italian translations of texts of great significance from the theoretical and scientific point of view (for example, excerpts from significant scientific works recently published or articles of great relevance for the scientific community not yet published in Italian).

Reviews: 

This category indicates reviews, notes, and discussions of scientific publications. We distinguish “thematic reviews” (reviews of books treating the same topic of the issue they are published in) and “athematic reviews” (reviews of books whose topic is different from the one treated in the issue they are published in).
