First review round: 2.9 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

Motivation:
I am very satisfied with the editorial process of the journal. The editor was very helpful and responded very quickly to some questions I had regarding the editorial process. The turnover was very fast. I have received the comments of the peer-reviewers three weeks after submission. The comments were constructive in nature and helped me finesse the manuscript. It was accepted shortly after I had submitted the manuscript after the suggested revisions. Once the article was published online, I was notified via email, containing all the information and an active DOI, the same day. In addition, the editorial team was very meticulous and took great care to ensure that the final layout would be approved by the respective author and that all information was correct prior to publication—something that does not usually get consulted with manuscript authors. Overall, I would highly recommend this journal to my fellow academics in the field of security studies.

Aims and Scope

The Revista Científica General José María Córdova (ISSN: 1900-6586 / e-ISSN: 2500-7645) is an interdisciplinary journal directed to military and strategic studies. The RCGJMC publishes original research articles that explore theoretical and empirical approaches to the study of power and its legitimate use for national interests. Its objective is the construction of a strategic culture that articulates the available means with the ways and national capabilities to achieve the leading ends of the State. In the Latin American and Caribbean region, the RCGJMC is a bellwether that converges multiple academic perspectives and professional experiences to contribute to the consolidation of democracy and defense of human rights.
