INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
Scope and policy
Revista Signos. Estudios de Lingüística receives submissions of scientific articles for blind revision. All articles should conform to the formal requirements and should address the fields of psycholinguistics, text and discourse linguistics, or applied linguistics.
Submissions should be unpublished works and should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
The Editor reserves the right not to send for review those manuscripts that do not comply with the Guidelines for Publication and to edit the format of the original accepted.
Manuscripts should be sent as an electronic copy in Word for Windows or equivalent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the manuscript has been received, the author(s) will receive an acknowledgment of receipt where the status of the article is reported or where it is informed that the manuscript will not be sent for review because of incompliance with the guidelines for publication and / or with the fields of specialty.
Review of manuscripts is done by at least two pairs of anonymous reviewers and is followed by their report within four months. The Editor will e-mail the author(s) about the possibility of publishing the manuscript, along with an acknowledgment of acceptance, a report with observations or, if necessary, a report containing the inappropriateness of the manuscript.
To review the manuscript, each of the anonymous pairs receives it as an e-mail attachment, a request for review, a review form, and a copy of the Guidelines for Publication. Once the review has been done, the reviewers will e-mail the reviewing form and will, in turn, receive an online thank-you note.
If the manuscript is accepted with observations, authors should submit the new version within 45 days. In re-submitting your revised version, please say clearly (in a forwarding letter as a separate WORD document) how you have addressed the referees' comments. This should also include what you have chosen to leave out from your revision. The manuscript will be sent for a new review done by the same anonymous pairs, who will report acceptance, with or without observations, or who will deem it inappropriate.
The editorial process will not continue if authors have been notified of the first review and have not re-submitted the manuscript within 45 days.
If the manuscript is finally accepted by the reviewers, authors must send a digital version of the manuscript. Authors will receive acknowledgment of acceptance, where the issue number of the journal and the tentative date of publication will be found.
The Editor reserves the right to include articles accepted for publication in the issue he deems most appropriate.
Authors are responsible for both the scientific content of their manuscript
and the opinions expressed which are not necessarily endorsed by the Editor.
