In order to ensure high-quality publications, HERMES runs a careful review process. All submitted manuscripts are assessed through a double blind review process by two external referees.

The referees assess the manuscripts for relevance, originality, appropriateness of the selected literature, theory and methods, quality of the analyses, documentation of claims and conclusions, argumentative logic and coherence, and readability.
