Scientific validation

Proposals and manuscripts submitted to Universidade Católica Editora (UCP PRESS) are evaluated by the editorial team based on their experience of more than 20 years of academic editorial work. All UCP PRESS publications also require a rigorous peer review, carried out by the coordinators of the various collections or at the initiative of the editorial team.

The decision to publish is generally based on the opinions of at least two independent reviewers. The reviewers are experienced academics who are asked to respect the ethical guidelines for peer review developed by the COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics)   in its current version, ensuring the integrity of the academic research published by UCP PRESS.
