Publishing Process

Authors interested in publishing in Cuadernos de Lingüística Hispánica must take into account the following aspects when applying for an article:

Originality. The journal seeks the publication of original works not yet published by other means. A work that is translated from another language is not considered original.

Copyright. The journal allows authors to retain copyright to their articles. However, for Cuadernos de Lingüística Hispánica, the submission of an article indicates that the author(s) certify(s) and accept(s) that:

The ideas and affirmations consigned by the authors are their responsibility and do not necessarily interpret the opinions and policies of the journal, nor do they necessarily respond to the opinion of its editor or of the Pedagogical and Technological University of Colombia.

The reception of an article does not imply the commitment of the journal Cuadernos de Lingüística Hispánica for its publication.

Its reproduction and citation for academic purposes are authorized, explicitly indicating the source.

In addition, to regulate the relationship between the contents of the journal and its readers, the articles will be published under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial, No Derivative Works 4.0 (CC BY-NC-ND) license

Code of Ethics. Cuadernos de Lingüística Hispánica adheres to the “Guide to good practices for journal editors” and other ethical guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), as well as the provisions of Habeas Data-Statutory Law 1266 of 2008, for the management of personal information in databases. Authors must avoid incurring unethical publishing behavior that compromises the quality or veracity of the results of the manuscripts they submit to the journal.

Peer Review. In the process of publishing the journal Cuadernos de Lingüística Hispánica, once the original article (manuscript) has been received, the Editorial Committee will define whether it meets both the technical standards established by the journal and the relevance, scientific and writing quality. Likewise, this will be reviewed by a plagiarism detector software, to determine its originality. If the document complies with these standards, it will be subject to review and evaluation by reviewers specialized in the particular thematic area, under the "double-blind" system, that is, throughout the evaluation process the identities of both the authors and the reviewers are concealed. Once their evaluation has been completed, the reviewers will send their opinion through the journal's portal. The evaluated article may have one of these three results: publishable, publishable with adjustments, or not publishable. When this is considered publishable with adjustments, the author is informed, who decides whether to commit to making them, and will communicate her/his decision in writing to the Editorial Committee

Simultaneous submission. The authors should not simultaneously submit the same manuscript to another journal, since this potentially compromises the originality and rights of a manuscript. The submission of the manuscript must be done strictly, following the rules for authors.

Use and Dissemination of Articles. It is essential that the authors, if they are researchers and university professors, actively participate in the dissemination of their articles among their students and colleagues in the area. The authors can get involved in dissemination strategies so that part of the scientific knowledge in their articles is communicated more pleasantly and its understanding and assimilation by a broader public is facilitated.

    Roles and management of the journal

It is of special interest to the journal that all its collaborators (authors, reviewers, editors, and publishing professionals, among others) work with principles that promote and guarantee scientific integrity in all phases of the communication of scientific knowledge, ensuring that the manuscripts published in the journal transmit reliable, reproducible knowledge that helps both the advancement of science and the solution of problems in the area, with a real impact on professional practice.

Likewise, the journal will ensure that ethical practices permeate the entire operation of the journal, following COPE in one of its core practices on journal management.

Ethics and evaluation process

One of the first verifications that the journal will carry out when receiving a manuscript submission is to check its originality and its probable similarity with other works already published through an anti-plagiarism software.

If the inappropriate use of other works protected by copyright, of works already published, the fabrication or manipulation of data, or any other type of unethical conduct is detected, the journal may reject the submitted manuscript.

Also, if the authors involved in an incident that violates ethics or scientific integrity do not provide a satisfactory clarification, the journal, in the future, will not receive or process any submission from them again.

Ethical dilemmas

The journal Cuadernos de Lingüística Hispánica will follow the procedures suggested by COPE and its flowcharts, in the face of evidence of bad practices or ethical dilemmas in the manuscripts received or published.

Corrections and retractions

The journal may make corrections or retractions of works already published. Corrections will proceed when minor, but important errors are identified, that is, errors that do not greatly compromise the results of an investigation or its contents, but that may give rise to misunderstandings. It could also be errors in the information of the authors or another type of error associated with the bibliographic information of the article.

On the other hand, retractions will occur in cases where a serious problem is identified in an article, which compromises its results, reliability, or originality.

Therefore, each case will be studied by the editor and his/her team, and the pertinent actions will be taken, also following the COPE recommendations.

Ethical aspects of submission

Some ethical aspects associated with the submission or application of any manuscript are described below:

Statement of authorship, conflicts of interest

Authors must submit their manuscripts with a statement of authorship and originality. Likewise, they must present a conflict-of-interest form, duly signed by all the authors. Both documents must follow these journal templates:

Declaration of authorship
Conflict of interest

Also, it is requested that at the time of submission they submit a signed license, which may require updating once the article has been approved, if any modification was made to the title, as a result of the peer review process.

Petitions, complaints, complaints, and claims

The contributors or readers of the journal can get in touch with the editorial office through its official email (cuadernos.linguistica@uptc.edu.co), to present to the Editor in Chief any type of request that provides clarity on any process associated with the manuscripts submitted or published, or to file a complaint, claim or potential risk about ethical problems in any work.

All requests will be processed, offering a probable answer timeline, according to their nature or complexity.

 

Peer Review Process

Manuscript evaluation

The journal Cuadernos de Lingüística Hispánica evaluates the submitted manuscripts through a "double-blind" peer review system, which means that the identity of both the authors and the reviewers is reserved throughout the process, with the purpose that the evaluation is as independent as possible and maintains its scientific focus.

To offer clarity to our authors, below, we explain the stages of the journal evaluation process:

Editorial review and desk rejection

All manuscripts submitted to the journal go through an editorial review that consists of 1) a similarity review of the manuscript in an anti-plagiarism software; 2) a review of compliance with the minimum submission criteria and the interest of the topic for the journal.

If in any of these two aspects a problem is identified in the manuscript, the journal will notify the authors, either suggesting adjustments or corrections or discarding the submission of the manuscript.

Manuscripts that successfully pass this phase or those that do not present any problem will go through the peer review process.

Reviewers’ selection

Once a manuscript passes the editorial review, the search or selection of peer reviewers begins. The journal selects reviewers based on a review of the candidate's profile, in which academic training is combined (mainly reviewers with a Linguistics doctorate or specialty are sought), recent publications of books and articles, the research activity of the potential reviewer, and her/his H index. Also, they must not have a conflict of interest with the document object of the evaluation. If the Editorial Committee is unaware of this, the reviewer must state in writing if she/he has a conflict of interest with the research in which she/he is involved with the research which frames the article or with the funding institution.

Manuscript reading

The reviewers who agree to evaluate the manuscript do an in-depth review of its contents to establish, in general terms, its scientific rigor (conceptual and methodological aspects, results, etc.) and some aspects related to its presentation and writing.

Peer review outcome

Each time the journal completes an evaluation cycle ¾usually involving two or three reviewers for each manuscript¾, the editor reads, consolidates, and submits the concepts with a verdict on likely acceptance or rejection. The consolidated concept can suggest slight modifications, deep modifications, and approval without modifications or rejection.

The final approval of the manuscript, in the case of the request for corrections, will depend on the verification of the reviewers of the corrected version and the acceptance of the editor.

Evaluation Form

 

There is an instrument for evaluating the articles in which it is stipulated: the scale of assessment, the minimum passing score, the typology of the articles (i.e. research, review, discussion), aspects of content and aspects of form with their respective criteria assessment and scoring ranges.

 

The reviewer has the possibility to accept, reject or approve the article with modifications. The journal ensures the confidentiality of the names of the reviewers and the partial and total results of the evaluation.

The article accepted with observations, according to the reviewers' criteria, will be returned to its author(s) so that they can make the pertinent corrections. Once received, it must be delivered back, with the adjustments, to the reviewers to verify the improvements.

Corrections

Authors will have the opportunity to make a round of corrections to their manuscripts. In the event of an insistence on the part of the reviewers or the Editor on the insufficiency of the adjustments, the article may be rejected.

Finally, the correction times will be defined according to what the editor suggests and agreed with the authors. In any case, the period may not exceed one trimester; Once this period has expired and if corrections are not delivered, the manuscript will be rejected.

Peer review average time

The peer review process is complex due to the specialization of some topics and the work overload of many researchers who, in addition, also act as reviewers or editors for several journals. To this is added that the process is carried out ad honorem. However, the journal will work on rigorous monitoring of all its processes, to provide quick answers to its authors, in a matter of weeks or a few months.

On average, a full peer review cycle for a manuscript will take about four months. When divergent opinions arise between two reviewers, the article will be sent to a third reviewer, to resolve the controversy.

Access

Post-publication

Post-publication is a new term that can be used to refer to the processes of diffusion, dissemination, and appropriation of scientific work, after its online publication. The journals develop policies, protocols, and strategies of scientific communication to stimulate the consultation of their contents and reach the specialized public to which it is mainly directed, but also the general public that can benefit or have some type of impact due to the results of an investigation.

Below are some key aspects of access to the journal and the uses of its contents.

Its purpose is not commercial but scientific and seeks to provide a service to the scientific community in linguistics, by disseminating, disseminating, and offering scientific knowledge validated by peers.

Editorial Production

The production brings together a series of scientific editing professionals (copyeditors, designers, layout designers, proofreaders, translators) who help the manuscripts, before being published, to reach their best possible version. Production comprises the following stages:

Copy Editing

In copy editing, the approved manuscripts are intervened to correct aspects of writing, syntax, and spelling, in addition to fully adapting them to the journal's guidelines. Each manuscript goes through three readings (in its originals, in its diagrammed version, and the final proofs) to try to prevent errors.

Layout

The layout is the stage in which the manuscripts are adapted to the layout of the journal and its editorial conventions. It seeks that the texts have uniformity, the same graphic identity and that they contain all the necessary information so that it can be easily identified and retrieved online.

Markup

Nowadays scientific journals offer several reading formats online or on devices. Also, due to the protocols of the platforms or systems in which they are published or indexed, they must carry out technical intervention processes on the files of their published articles so that they are properly registered and later retrieved by search engines.

Translation

The journal publishes the metadata of its articles (titles, abstracts, and keywords) in two languages. For this, each text will be reviewed by a professional translator, to guarantee the quality of the translations and the proper use of specialized terms for the area.

Interaction with Authors

In the copy editing phase, in the layout phase, in the translation of metadata, and in the preparation of the final files with the different formats handled by the journal, the authors have the opportunity to interact and review their text. Usually, in each of these phases, some corrections imply clarification by the authors or their revision, before moving from one stage to another.

Authors are requested to be diligent and thorough in reviewing the proofs of their manuscript, to guarantee the integrity of the contents and finish the edition as soon as possible, and thus make the final text available online for readers to consult.

Production Times

The times of a production process are variable, according to the complexity of the manuscript and aspects associated with its graphic features. However, a manuscript, including the interactions with the authors, must be edited in an average time that can range from 8 to 15 days. This means that the complete publication of an issue of the journal can be carried out over 3 or 4 months.

Post-publication

Post-publication is a new term that can be used to refer to the processes of diffusion, dissemination, and appropriation of scientific work, after its online publication. Journals develop scientific communication policies, protocols, and strategies to encourage consultation of their content and reach the specialized public to which it is directed, mainly, but also the general public that may benefit or have some kind of impact from the results of a research.

Below are some key aspects of access to the journal and the uses of its contents.
