All papers submitted for publication in Palimpsest are subject to peer-review. This journal operates a double-blind review process, which means the identities of the authors are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa. Papers deemed suitable are sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper. A peer review template is filled by the reviewers and it consists of rating scales the editor deems most useful for determining scientific merit, originality, and scope of the work, indicating ways to improve it and recommending acceptance or rejection. The editors are responsible for the decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles. The editors’ decision is final.
