Peer Review Process


The Editorial Team of the Revista Colombiana de Investigaciones Agroindustriales performs a preliminary review of the manuscripts in order to establish whether they conform to the topics, basic criteria and guidelines stated by the journal. If this requirement is not met, the manuscripts will be rejected.

Once the respective editorial review is completed, the manuscript is sent to at least two referees to judge the quality of the work. The evaluation system adopted by the journal is double-blind (the anonymity of authors and evaluators is preserved).

The evaluators must take into account the characteristics of the manuscript according to the type of contribution (research or review) and its structure through concepts defined by:

Scientific or technological research article: A document that presents, in detail, the original results of completed research projects. The structure generally used contains four important sections: introduction, methodology, results and conclusions.

Review article: Document resulting from a completed research where the results of published or unpublished research on a field of science or technology are analyzed, systematized and integrated, in order to report on progress and development trends. It is characterized by presenting a careful bibliographic review of at least 50 references.

Reflection article: Document that represents research results, from an analytical, interpretative or critical perspective of the author, on a specific topic, using original sources. It is characterized by presenting a careful bibliographical support review.
