Editorial Center


Articles submitted for publication in the journal go through a review process that analyses various aspects: content, use of language, and quality. Initially, the Editorial Committee verifies the article's relevance, quality, and compliance with the formatting detailed in the INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS; wording and clarity are also evaluated. Next, proper use of English is evaluated (for articles which are submitted in this language), and the last stage of this general review process is to decide whether to forward the article to peer reviewers or to return it to the author(s) with additional suggestions, in case the article warrants modification before resubmission. The article may also be rejected at this stage, following the comments made in the review process.

After the article has passed this first review process, it then goes on to a "double blind" peer review.  In this evaluation, the peers give their opinion regarding the article's technical quality, its originality, and the text's usefulness. For this evaluation process, we select renowned specialists in the field, who give their opinion impartially and confidentially.  Once their opinions are received, the Editorial Committee determines its conclusions regarding the review process and communicates one of the following decisions:

  • Accepted: The article will be published exactly as it was submitted, without modifications or corrections to the content, except for formatting corrections and after evaluating the proper use of English.
  • Accepted, with minor corrections: The article will be published once the authors make the minor corrections suggested by the peer reviewers. The Editorial Committee reviews the corrected article and checks English usage again (if necessary). The final version submitted by the authors must be accompanied by the Modification guide in Word, both for technical corrections, and for language modifications.
  • Major corrections and a new review: The article must be corrected following the suggestions made; the authors must resubmit the article for evaluation. Then, it will be determined whether the suggested corrections have been appropriately addressed. This new version must be accompanied by the Modification guide in Word (alluding to the paragraph or location where the correction has been made), or, if there is general opposition, this must be stated in an attached letter.
  • Rejected: It is not recommended that the article be published, following the recommendations of the peer reviewers, and after the Editorial Committee’s analysis. The authors will generally be notified of the reason for the rejection, without this implying any further considerations.

Finally, DYNA Journal clarifies that, although in the letter of submission, the authors are asked to suggest possible peer reviewers for their article, this does not oblige or imply that these suggested reviewers will be assigned to that article.

The Modification guide in Word which is required along with the final version of the articles must contain a detailed explanation of the modifications made to the text (both technical corrections as well as corrections related to English usage); these descriptions of changes must be placed next to the paragraph where the reviewer has suggested a correction.

Keep in mind that the final version of the article must comply with the specifications outlined in the INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS;  authors must check the latest version of these Instructions as well as Article Submission Format Model on the Website.
