All submissions are carefully assessed and undergo the double-blind peer review process with a minimum of two reviewers. The Quality of Life journal follows a new editorial policy that aims to encourage articles that bring original contributions to the international literature in its areas of interest, without downplaying relevant research that aims to foster local, national or regional social development.
