Call for papers

The call for papers is valid for the entire year and has no deadline.

The Journal is organised into two sections: Linguistics and Philology and Literature. Contributions published on the site will be allocated to one of these sections according to topic, following peer-review (see below) and formatting.

As of 1 January each year, submissions for the forthcoming issue of the Journal may be made. Once peer-review and formatting have been completed, each contribution will be published on the website. The annual issue is closed on 31 December. Submissions received after 30 October will be considered for the following year’s issue.

Peer-review process

The double-blind peer-review process, managed through the UniCa Open Journal System (OJS) platform, is employed by Rhesis to evaluate scientific contributions submitted to the Journal for publication.

Once a contribution has been accepted, one or two members of the Steering and Editorial Committees evaluate it to ensure that it is in line with the aims and scientific and quality standards of the Journal. Should the contribution be deemed suitable, the Steering Committee identifies two reviewers, experts in the field of study covered by the contribution, and communicates their names to the Editorial Committee. The contribution is then sent for evaluation. This phase typically takes three weeks.

To ensure the objectivity of the evaluation, the Steering and Editorial Committees undertake to keep the identity of both the reviewers and the author anonymous and ensure that the reviewers are independent of the author.

It is the responsibility of the reviewers to accept and comply with the Journal’s Code of Ethics, as well as to declare any potential conflicts of interest. In the event that a reviewer is unable to fulfil their duties, the members of the Steering Committee will identify an alternative expert.

Reviewers are typically given four weeks to complete their assessment of the contribution and return it to the Journal. The Steering Committee examines the evaluations and, in collaboration with the Editorial Committee, determines whether to accept the article for publication, request further revisions from the author, or reject the contribution.

Should a contribution be deemed unsuitable for publication in the Journal due to failure to meet its standards, lack of alignment with its intended scientific scope, or for other reasons (e.g. plagiarism and/or other violations of the Code of Ethics or other practices contrary to scientific integrity), the Steering Committee may, after consultation with the editor-in-chief, reject the contribution without sending it for external expert review (desk rejection).
