The procedure of reviewing at the Virtual Economics
Each paper submitted to the VE is evaluated by the Editor-in-Chief according to the following criteria: 1) the paper’s sufficient contribution to knowledge; 2) its high potential to attract the interest of an international audience. Each pre-selected paper is evaluated by at least two independent Reviewers. The double-blind review process is applied. It means that neither the Author(s) nor the Reviewers know each other’s identities.
