After ten years of editorial commitment, Pólemos begins its New Course renewing graphics and offering content in digital format, through a website fully renovated. Since 2016, with the opportunity to adapt to international standard evaluation, the biannual journal employs a bilingual website, in English and Italian. Pólemos also renovates the Scientific Committee and welcomes renowned as well as young scholars. Such a structural renovations aim at national scientific evaluation, and indexing on internationally acknowledged evaluation indices.
The contributions published in various Sections – re-shaped for the new course – are subjected to blind and peer reviewing procedures, as worldwide adopted by academic communities. The manuscripts received for review are treated as confidential and anonymous. The double revision, also anonymous, is entrusted to scholars of competence external to Pólemos’ scientific committee and performed by scientific standards. Referees express assessment with the help of clear and documented arguments, taking into account prerequisites set by Editors. The double appraisal obtained by reviewing manuscripts is transmitted anonymously to Authors only, and is not used in any way for personal gain.
The material on Referees evaluation is stored in a private archive, maintained by the Editorial Board. The archive is accessible only to Pólemos’ Director and to the National Agency of the University Evaluation and Research (ANVUR). Pólemos publishes each year, in the second issue, the list of Referees.
