Policy

Altre Modernità (AM), a six-monthly journal, ISSN 2035-7680, features articles, discussions, interviews, translations, creative works, reviews, and bibliographical information on the cultural production of Modernity. The themes and topics tackled in each issue will take Altre Modernità to areas of the world traditionally perceived as geographically and culturally disparate, aiming at capturing the newness of the cultural paradigms that are taking shape in several places today in order to isolate, subvert, weaken or transcend the monologic discourse of mainstream culture.

AM is dedicated to the study of the peripheries of the world and the peripheries of societies that act as vibrant centres of cultural production, with special attention paid to those aspects of his cultural production that offer alternative models, suggestions and tools for overcoming it. The literary discourse still represents - for Altre Modernità - the point of departure and the unavoidable hub collating explorations in contiguous cultural and artistic fields.

Altre Modernità is an Open Access journal devoted to the promotion of competent and definitive contributions to literary and cultural studies knowledge. The journal welcomes also works that fall into various disciplines: cultural studies, religion, history, literature, liberal arts, law, political science, computer science and economics that deal with contemporary issues, as listed in AM CfPs. Altre Modernità uses a policy of double-blind blind review (in which both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process) by at least two consultants to evaluate articles accepted for consideration. Altre Modernità promotes special issues on particular topics of special relevance in the cultural debates. Altre Modernità occasionally has opportunities for Guest Editors for special issues of the journal.

Altre Modernità publishes at least 2 original issues in a calendar year.

DUTIES OF REVIEWERS

 

CONTRIBUTION TO EDITORIAL DECISIONS

Peer reviewers collaborate with the editor/s in making editorial decisions, and may also assist AM in asking the author improving the paper by means of editorial communications.

 

PROMPTNESS

If a selected referee feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript, or knows that s/he will not be able to submit a prompt review, s/he should notify the editor/s and be exempt from the review process.

 

CONFIDENTIALITY

 

Any manuscripts submitted to peer reviewers must be treated as confidential documents. Discussion or disclosure of their content must be subject to the editor/s’ authorization.

 

STANDARDS OF OBJECTIVITY

 

Reviews must be carried out objectively and using the appropriate multilingual form. Authors should avoid personal criticism. Referees’ opinions should be expressed clearly, exhaustively and supported by appropriate arguments.

 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF SOURCES

 

Any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors should be identified by the reviewers. Previously reported observations, derivations or arguments should be followed by the relevant citation. Reviewers should also inform the editor/s of any substantial similarity or overlap between the article under consideration and any other published material of which they have personal knowledge.

 

DISCLOSURE AND CONFLICT OF INTEREST

Reviewers should not examine manuscripts if they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

 

DUTIES OF AUTHORS

 

REPORTING STANDARDS

Authors of reports of original research should put forward an accurate account of the work carried out as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Fundamental data should be represented accurately in the manuscript. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements are regarded as unethical behaviour and thus deemed unacceptable.

Authors retain copyright and all other rights for materials submitted for inclusion in AM. The Authors should notify AM past or future publications of the his/her contribution to AM.

 

ORIGINALITY AND PLAGIARISM

 

The authors should ensure that their works are entirely original, and that in case they have used the work and/or words of others, these have been conveniently cited or quoted.

 

MULTIPLE, REDUNDANT OR CONCURRENT PUBLICATION

 

Authors should avoid publishing papers describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication, as this amounts to unacceptable, unethical publishing behaviour.

 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF SOURCES

 

Reference to the works of others must always be properly acknowledged. Authors should cite publications that have been influential for the research reported in their manuscripts.

 

AUTHORSHIP OF THE PAPER

 

Authorship should be limited to those who significantly contributed to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the paper. All those who have made other remarkable contributions should be listed as co-authors.

It is the corresponding author’s responsibility to ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are listed on the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the manuscript and have agreed to its submission for publication.

 

DISCLOSURE AND CONFLICTS OF INTEREST

AM authors should reveal in their abstract and manuscript any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretations of the abstract/article. All sources for financial support for the project should be unveiled and inserted in the METADATA information sheet.

 

FUDAMENTAL ERRORS IN PUBLISHED WORKS

It is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor/s or publisher when a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her published work are discovered. The author should then cooperate with the journal editor/s to retract or correct the paper.
