Article Submission Guidelines

From RTDA 31st edition on, we have come across the terms, using double blind peer review. All articles should be submitted using OJS online system.

All submitted articles will be immediately read by the Editorial Board for a formal review in order to verify RTDA editorial policy and will be analyzed by an anonymous reviewer, which could be able to reject them, in advance, whether they do not comply with the requirements and directives for process. In case they do not present any a hindrance related to the editorial policy, the articles approved by the Editorial Board, it will start a scientific evaluation procedure.

When the scientific evaluation procedure begins, all the articles are sent to the editor-in-chief, who verifies whether they are deemed appropriate to RTDA’s editorial line (including the work’s extent). Once this formal screening has been done, each article will be forwarded to two reviewers (with PhD in tax law) of the Editorial Board, who will be in charge for a qualitative evaluation of content, not identifying themselves. Delivery deadlines by the reviewers will be up to 20 days, extending further 20. Each reviewer will be able to read only two articles every six months using double blind per review. At platform OJS, there will be registered when the article is posted and the date the article has been released with the reviewer’s feedback to the author. The evaluation stage is ready as soon as the peer review process is done by the submission and comments sent to RTDA. In this context, the evaluation and comments (with no identification) will be sent to the author just to be aware, or wishing to add the comments suggested, which could be bound or not by magazine’s approval. Papers should have no more than 20 pages, but this guideline is not absolute, meaning that the Editor-in-Chief would evaluate whether the length of an article is appropriate for the subject.
