Author Guidelines

Articles submitted for publication in ordinary issues of this journal are first scheduled for presentation as oral communications on the occasion of the cultural assemblies which are held bi-annually by the Division (Classe) of Physical, Mathematical and Natural Sciences of the Accademia Peloritana dei Pericolanti. Contributions from scientists outside the Academy are also welcome. However, papers whose authors are non-members should be formally endorsed by either an ordinary or corresponding member of the Academy [ordinary members of the Science Division are listed here; a list of corresponding members is available here; a short curriculum vitae of each member can be downloaded from here]. Following the oral communication, each manuscript will be peer-reviewed by, typically, two referees. Once the evaluation process has been successfully completed, the manuscript will be eventually accepted for publication as an open-access article on the understanding that it has not been published elsewhere or submitted to another journal.

Exceptions to this rule are papers containing material disclosed at conferences, meetings or workshops held under the scientific patronage of the Accademia Peloritana dei Pericolanti, whose proceedings are published as supplements of the journal. In such cases, the Guest Editors of the supplement have the authority to accept submissions of the participants to the scientific event even if they are not members of the Academy, with no additional endorsement. Similar rules apply to special issues of the journal whose contributions are formally invited by the Editors of the journal.

There are no page charges for submission, processing or publication.


Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. Original research papers can be submitted to this journal by any member of the Accademia Peloritana dei Pericolanti (APP). The manuscript may naturally be co-authored by non-members as well. In this case any co-author who also is an APP member may act as "corresponding" author. If none of the authors is an APP member, a paper may still be submitted to the "Articles" journal section but it should also be formally endorsed by an ordinary or corresponding member of the APP Science Division. Before submitting their paper, the authors should then contact an APP member and ask her/him to read the paper and endorse it. Authors are invited to specify the name of the endorsing APP member in a cover letter to the Editor (or in the section "Comments for the Editor" at the bottom of the submission page). Authors should be aware that their manuscript will not be processed for peer review until the Editor receives an explicit endorsing statement from a member of the APP Science Division. This latter condition does not apply to "invited" papers such as those hosted in the section "Lectures and Colloquia" or in special issues of the journal, and to contributions submitted for publication as proceedings of scientific events held under the scientific patronage of the Academy.
  2. Upon submitting their manuscript, the authors declare that the paper has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration. Exceptions to this rule are colloquium papers delivered as invited talks.
  3. The corresponding author contextually declares that, for papers coauthored by scientists from various institutions, all authors are familiar and agree with the contents of the manuscript. The Editorial Committee reserves the right to contact these authors to confirm this in case of doubt.
  4. The authors declare to be aware that the unacknowledged use of another person’s ideas, even unpublished, as well as the copying or paraphrasing of a text composed - and, possibly, published elsewhere - by another author yet presented as if it were one’s own work is plagiarism. The authors underwrite that, except where specifically acknowledged, no parts of the submitted manuscript (including tables and/or figures) have been copied from other authors or sources as well as from papers previously submitted for assessment by the authors themselves, and that any source employed in the manuscript, any paragraph or portion of text which has been excerpted from a scientific publication, the Internet, or other sources of information has been duly placed in quotation marks and correctly referenced in the footnotes and/or in the bibliography.
  5. Authors are invited to upload their manuscript as a self-contained PDF file with no specific typographical format (preprint layout). Once accepted for publication, the manuscript should be typeset by the authors in LaTeX.
  6. Authors are also invited to provide the names of up to three potential referees with the appropriate technical expertise, although the Editorial Committee will not necessarily approach them. Their email and postal addresses, phone and fax numbers should be provided as fully as possible. Authors may email this information to the Editor.
