The Editors accept papers throughout the calendar year. All papers submitted to the Journal are subjected to a thorough peer reviewing process. The prerequisites for accepting articles for publication is to prepare the work in accordance with the requirements of the Journal and to obtain positive reviews.
Before submitting a paper, an Author must prepare it according to the Guidelines for Authors.
After logging into the system, an Author must attach:
- his / her details (name and surname, affiliation and current e-mail address)
- paper title
- paper in Word format
- paper in PDF format
- become familiar with the provisions regarding ethics in publishing. By submitting an article to the journal, Authors automatically declare that the work is consistent with the principles against ghostwriting, guest authorship and plagiarism.
Each article submitted to the Journal is initially verified by the Editorial Office in terms of the Journal's requirements (topics and correctness of manuscript preparation in accordance with the Guidelines for Authors). If the initial verification indicates that the article presents a flagrantly low linguistic or meritorical level, the Editorial Office may decide not to accept the article for processing. If the article violates the requirements of the Journal, but the violation is not considered flagrant, the author is asked to verify the article and resubmit it.
Having met the preliminary conditions, each manuscript is subject to identical procedures:
I. REVIEW PROCEDURE
All the papers (in PDF format) are sent to Reviewers. The Journal Reviewers are specialists in composite materials, materials engineering and related sciences (Reviewers are always selected from other institutions than the Authors of the paper).The decision to appoint a reviewer belongs only to the Editor.
The reviewers for particular papers are appointed by the Editor-in-Chief (himself or having sought the opinion of the Section Editors) depending on the detailed topic of the submitted paper. Each Reviewer is asked to prepare an opinion on the paper on the standard Review form (available for Reviewers online in electronic format).
Reviewer before commencing work should become familiar with and act in accordance with the principles of ethics for the Journal. The Reviewer must guarantee:
- an objective opinion
- no conflict of interests (no personal or professional relationships with the paper Authors)
The Reviewer can present his / her comments in a descriptive form and classifies the paper as: accepted in the present form, in need of minor revision, in need of major revision or rejected. The Reviewer also has the right to request the paper to be submitted to him / her again after revisions for repeated review and acceptance.
The Author (or Co-author – named as the contact person to receive correspondence) receives reviews (without the Reviewers’ names) in PDF format.
Where a revision is required, the authors are required to respond in detail to the Editor's, Editorial Office's and Reviewer's comments (by sending to the Editor) and to make corrections to the manuscript. In cases of dispute (including possible rejection of the manuscript) or at the author's request, the decision is taken by the Editors (with the final decision belonging to the Editor-in-Chief), who can appoint further reviewers if necessary.
If the review is positive or the paper is submitted after corrections according to the Reviewers’ and Editor's remarks, the paper is referred to a further editorial procedure.
Special rights of the Editorial Office regarding reviews:
- In exceptional cases, when the Editor-in-Chief considers the review to be unreliable or violating the adopted ethical principles, the Editorial Office reserves the right not to use such a review and not to send it to the Authors of the reviewed manuscript.
- If the review includes requirements to cite specific publications authored/co-authored by the person preparing the review, the Editorial Office may decide to modify the version of the review sent to the Authors of the reviewed manuscript, by blackening the bibliographic descriptions of the publications.
II. EDITORIAL PROCEDURE
Each paper is proofread by a specialist native speaker of English. After proofreading the Author receives the corrected paper for acceptance of the corrections, remarks and suggestions of the proofreader.
After the language proofreading and acceptance thereof by the Author, technical proofreading is done by the technical proofreader, then the text is typeset and formatted and all the papers submitted to the particular issue are subject to final technical proofreading.
(In case of any doubt arising during technical proofreading or typesetting and formatting of a particular paper, the Coordinating Editor contacts the Author again).
Finally the whole issue goes to press and after its publication the particular papers are made available online (in PDF format) on the Journal website.
The order in which the papers are printed in the particular issue / publishing year depends both on the date of submission to the Editors and on how fast the paper undergoes the whole procedure as described above.
Submitting an article to the Journal is tantamount to expressing consent to publication in both paper and electronic form. The corresponding Author of the article receives (free of charge) the printed version of the Journal Issue, in which the article appeared. The electronic version is available without restrictions (free of charge to all readers).
By submitting the manuscript, the Authors automatically agree to the processing of the personal data provided by the Editors and Publishing House.
No honorarium will be paid. The journal does not have article submission charges.
The ethics rulesThe ethics rules for the Composites Theory and Practice journal are based on the Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors issued by the Committee for Publishing Ethics (COPE).
EditorsAn editor of a reviewed journal is responsible for making decisions which articles should be published, and in addition be responsible for all publications in the journal. By making these decisions, an editor may be guided by the editorial policy of the journal, as well as the legal requirements for libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. An editor may communicate with other editors or reviewers when making a decision about publication.
An editor should evaluate manuscripts for intellectual content and follow the COPE guidelines for withdrawing articles. The editor shall not disclose any information about the manuscript he considers to anyone except the authors, reviewers and potential reviewers, and in some cases - members of the editorial board, as deemed appropriate.
Unpublished materials contained in the submitted manuscript cannot be used in the editor's own research. Valuable information or ideas obtained as a result of evaluation of the work must be confidential and cannot be used for personal gain.
The editor undertakes to ensure that advertising, reprinting or other commercial revenues do not affect editorial decisions. The editor should strive to ensure a fair and proper review process. The editor should require all colleagues to disclose relevant conflicting interests.
ReviewersReviewing helps the editor in making editorial decisions, and through editorial communication with the author, can also help the author improve the manuscript.
Any invited reviewer who does not feel competent to review the research reported in the article or knows that its timely execution will be impossible, should immediately notify the editor so that alternative reviewers can be contacted.
All manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown or discussed with other people unless permitted by the editor.
Reviews should be processed objectively. Personal criticism of the author is unacceptable. Reviewers should clearly express their views using appropriate supporting arguments.
The reviewer should also draw the Editor's attention to any significant similarities or overlaps between the manuscripts under consideration and any other published data about which he has personal knowledge.
Privileged information or ideas obtained as a result of the assessment must be confidential and cannot be used for personal gain. Reviewers should not judge manuscripts in the event of a conflict of interest, including those resulting from competitive cooperation or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, a company or institution related to the manuscript.
It is considered unethical to include in a review a requirement or suggestion that authors cite publications authored/co-authored by the reviewer.
AuthorsAuthors reporting the results of original research should provide a detailed description of the performed work and an objective discussion about its significance. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.
Authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works and if they have used the work and/or words of other people, that they have been quoted appropriately.
The author should not publish manuscripts describing basically the same research in more than one journal or original publication. Parallel submission of the same manuscript to more than one journal is considered as unethical publication behavior and is unacceptable.
Proper recognition of the work of others must always be granted. The authors should also cite publications that influenced the inspiration and determined the nature of the submitted work.
Authorship should be limited to persons who have made a significant contribution to the concept, design, performance or interpretation of the results of the submitted manuscript. All those who have made a significant contribution should be listed as co-authors. If there are other people who have participated in certain aspects of the research project, they should be listed in the Acknowledgments section.
The author for correspondence should ensure that all the relevant co-authors (as defined above) are listed and no inappropriate co-authors are included in the list of authors of the manuscript. He/she must also ensure that all the co-authors approved the final version of the article and agreed to submit it for publication.
All authors should disclose in their manuscripts all financial or other conflicts of interest that can be interpreted as affecting the results or their interpretation in the manuscript. All sources of financial support for work should be indicated.
When the author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his own published work, it is the responsibility of the author to immediately notify the editor or publisher of the journal and to cooperate to withdraw the article or to publish an appropriate errata.
Publisher confirmationIn cases of alleged or proven scientific abuse, fraudulent publication or plagiarism, the publisher, in close cooperation with the editors, will take all appropriate measures to clarify the situation and change the article. This includes a quick errata publication or, in the most severe cases, complete withdrawal of the paper.
