I'm not sure if my manuscript falls within the scope of the journal or if it fulfils the journal's requisites, how long will take to have an answer from the editors?
Upon submission, manuscripts undergo cursory inspection in the editorial office for compliance with the instructions to authors. Manuscripts that do not meet the requisites for publication (please refer to the author guidelines) will be typically rejected within 7-20 days, depending on the time of the year. Manuscripts that pass this fist step will be assigned to the corresponding Editor-in-Chief, who may then reject or allocate them to one of the twelve Section Editors, depending on the topic.
Not at all.
- I am registered in the system but I cannot start the submission process
- I want to change my password
- I want to change my profile (personal data and roles)
The first assessment usually takes 2-4 months. Manuscripts are accepted within 9.5 months on average.
A revised manuscript will retain its original date of receipt only if it is received within three months of the date of return to the author. Revised papers returned after this interval will be treated as new submissions. Papers will not be accepted until all required minor changes have been incorporated into the document. the revised manuscripts will be uploaded to the Editorial Manager system (www.inia.es/sjar) of the journal.

After the authors have submitted the final version of their manuscript and it has been accepted for publication, it enters into the copy editing process. However, there is usually a waiting period of several weeks before this begins. Authors will be contacted when the copy editing process has begun.
