Editorial Policy 

-Pyrenae publishes articles that reflect and encourage research in all fields of study ranging from prehistory to the beginning of the Middle Ages, as well as aspects related to methodology, theory and historiography ..., with a clear commitment to excellence and innovation.

-Pyrenae includes articles by sources commissioned by its own editors, articles presented by other scholars and research groups, an occasional discussion forum, reviews of recently published works, and the list of doctoral theses and master’s degree dissertations presented in the Secció de Prehistòria i Arqueologia de la Universitat de Barcelona. This list demonstrates the range of academic research being carried out within the Secció.

-Pyrenae is a periodical that appears in printed format twice a year; it can be consulted via this website in its digital Edition or by using any eBook (epup format), or it can be downloaded in electronic format (PDF). The first part of each volume is published in January and the second in July. The journal’s editors respect this frequency.

-Double-blind peer-reviewing. Pyrenae considers that the evaluation of texts is one of the fundamental criteria for its excellence and thus adopts a strict policy of double-blind peer-reviewing, following the ethical and scientific recommendations of the European Association of Science Editors. As part of the review process, the journal’s editors, once the quality of the article has been considered, and after taking into account its subject matter, send it to at least two anonymous reviewers. Final responsibility for the decision as regards the publication of any manuscript submitted to Pyrenae lies in the hands of the journal’s editors, as they are familiar with its readers, its public, dissemination and impact, as well as the journal’s recognition.

-Pyrenae will take particular care not to publish articles that have already appeared in other journals or translations of articles. The journal’s editors request authors not to submit texts of this nature for consideration. In very exceptional cases, the editorial team may consider the publication of a previously published text.

-The opinions and data in all the articles published are the exclusive responsibility of the authors. In no case is Pyrenae or the Secció de Prehistòria i Arqueologia de la Universitat de Barcelona, or the University itself, responsible for the reliability or the authenticity of works published.

-The articles published in Pyrenae can be consulted and downloaded via this website (cf. Archive) or by means of the Revistes Catalanes amb Accés Obert repository.
