Plagiarism Detection

Peer Review Process

Sinología Hispánica. China Studies Review operates a double-blind peer review process. In order to guarantee the quality of the manuscripts in terms of scholarship and writing, each manuscript will be reviewed by expert reviewers selected for this purpose. To facilitate this process, the journal editor will decide if it is suitable for the journal, authors are requested to ensure that all submissions, whether the first or the revised version, are anonymous. The editor will find and contact two researchers or academics who are experts on the scientific committee or in the related field. They will be asked to read your article and inform the editor if they should publish the article in the journal.

Authors’ names and institutional affiliations should appear only on a detachable cover sheet. Submitted manuscripts will not normally be returned.

The selection of reviewers is under the criteria of the Editorial Board, which also first will examine the manuscripts. This first evaluation includes: (1) Checking the manuscript against plagiarism (Turnitin is the plagiarism detection tool used by the journal), and (2) Checking that the manuscript achieve basic quality standards.
