Peer Review Process

Anales del Jardín Botánico de Madrid will confirm receipt of all original manuscripts received.

The Editorial Board may reject an article without evaluating if it does not adhere rigorously to the guidelines, both formal and content, or if its contents do not fall within the scope of the journal.

After this preliminary analysis all articles will be submitted to an external review according to the double-blind peer review process in which at least two external referees will participate, appealing to a third party if necessary. Those referees should be prestigious researchers specialized in the subject. The anonymity of both the author and the reviewers will be maintained, however, the lists of external reviewers who have collaborated with the journal in previous years will be published periodically, with prior authorization.

Authors will be notified on the acceptance or definitive rejection of the article.

Dates of receipt and approval will be indicated in each published article.

The Editorial Board, attending the external reports, will be in charge of making the decision on whether to reject or accept each article.

In any case, it must be a FAIR repository (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable), preferably in open access.

There are several repositories destined to conserve and disseminate concrete data such as results of surveys, observations, interviews, simulations, automatically collected data, samples, models ... If necessary, authors can consult the Registry of Research Data Repositories re3data taking into account that each repository has its own deposit rules.

If the author has deposited datasets in a repository, he should mention it in the article providing a brief description of the type of data deposited, the name and URL of the repository, the identification code and the data of the license for use and distribution. This information must be included at the end of the article, immediately before the bibliographic listing, under the heading "Data availability".
