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.

  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

Before submitting the manuscript, please ensure you carefully read and adhere to all the guidelines and instructions to authors provided by the LiC formatted template [download]. The template provides you with all necessary information and examples (titles, citations, references…) to write your paper, and can also be properly used as a template to write in before submitting it to LiC. You may also read the document with screenshot that will guide you the procedure on how to submit the manuscript:

Your formatted manuscript will then be turned into and visualised as (i) the camera-ready LiC format (see the articles contained in LiC 36(1) as appropriate examples); (ii) XML format. Readers can choose the format in which they will access to the contents of the Journal: (i) they can download the whole issue, (ii) one single article, (iii) or the PDF automatically generated by the OJS system.
