Submission Preparation ChecklistAs 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.
- Does your manuscript comply with our "Author Guidelines"? (remember that you can send a proposal to the editor before writing a manuscript. Write to: editor[at]rcommunicationr.org)
- Ensure that you have obtained the necessary permission from coauthors and copyright holders. The reproduction of any illustration, table, figure, or lengthy quotation that have been previously published requires a written permission.
- Ensure you acknowledge all the funding entities.
- Ensure you agree with the production charges that would be paid after acceptance of the manuscript for publication (https://www.rcommunicationr.org/?journal=RCR&page=about&op=submissions).
The philosophy of the journal is to be open and to make all articles accessible. It is our belief that open access is a must in the future of science.
Authors who publish with RCR accept a slightly modified Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported License.
You, as author, retain the copyrights for your paper and you are invited to give the widest diffusion to your article. However, the Review of Communication Research is granted exclusivity for publication. The agreement allows others to share the work with an acknowledgement of the work's authorship and publication in this journal (i.e., citation). We do not want third parties to make a commercial use of the article, unless the authors and RCR agree to grant permission.
The journal will run an open review process as well as a traditional peer review process.
When the manuscript is accepted for publication, it gets a doi number and is available online to facilitate early citation.
The journal posts the published articles to many public repositories for further diffusion and permanence.
You, as author, are permitted and encouraged to post your work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on your website), as it can lead to productive exchanges, as well as earlier and greater citation of published work.
If you have any doubts, please, contact the editor: email@example.com
Many thanks for submitting your work to this journal!
