In order to ensure high quality publications, The Theological Review (in Romanian Revista Teologica) has a double-blinded peer review process. Manuscripts received from authors are first examined by editorial staff (the secretariat of The Theological Review) and are sent to two independent reviewers for peer review.
The following types of contributions are specifically peer reviewed: original research, translations, review articles, translations, collection of essays, conference proceedings. Other works may be peer reviewed at the discretion of the Chief Editor.
The Theological Review possess a consistent list of potential peer reviewers who are well profiled specialists in different domains of theology, history and philosophy from Romania and abroad. The list is permanently updated and enlarged.
The peer review process involves the following steps: (1) manuscripts are initially examined by the editorial team; (2) if selected, they are sent by the secretariat of The Theological Review to two expert independent reviewers for review; (3) the reviewers examine the manuscripts and submit their report to the secretariat of The Theological Review ; (4) the secretariat, based on the reviewers’ report, makes one of the following decisions: (a) to accept the manuscript for publishing, with or without editorial revision; (b) to invite the author to consistently revise his/her work; (c) to reject the manuscript, but indicate that further revision might justify a resubmission; (5) in case a manuscript receives a positive and a negative report, the secretariat may return it to the reviewers for further advice or ask a third reviewer to analyse the manuscript so that a final decision could be met.
