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.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- 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.
Authors have moral rights (perpetual, inalienable, non-transferable, inalienable, unseizable, and imprescriptible prerogatives as creators of the work), patrimonial (benefits in money or kind for the use or dissemination of the works, which can be assigned, transferred, or negotiated) and related rights. For example, prohibit or authorize the disclosure of the work, oppose its reproduction, transformation, or adaptation, require that your name appear each time the work is disclosed, etc., including intellectual property, mechanisms designed for the legal protection of intellectual production, creative effort, and innovation capacity. Therefore, it is important that actors in the production and dissemination of science through scientific journals, especially authors, evaluators, and editors, regularly consult the World Intellectual Property Organization (http://www.wipo.int/portal/en/), which regulates services, policies, information, and cooperation on intellectual property.
It is important to mention some recommendations for the scientific community regarding authorship, copyright, and intellectual property:
- Know, respect, and share copyright (moral, patrimonial, and related).
- Know and comply with current national and international legislation regarding authors' rights.
- Cite the works and authors consulted, under international standards of citations and bibliographic references, stating all the elements that allow locating the publication to which they refer for the consultation and support of readers.
- Prepare a bibliography, list of references or literature cited in detail, citing all the material consulted clearly and reliably, and under the rules.
- Submit manuscripts and publish articles in reliable scientific journals, where the ethics of scientific publication prevail, and bad publication practices are combated. To learn more about this section, it is suggested to review the Ethics Committee in Publications, located in the "Code of Ethics" section.
- The authors must respect the intellectual property rights of third parties if the materials used in the development of the article are not their property. Therefore, they must have the necessary authorizations to reproduce photographs, illustrations, graphics, tables, maps, and diagrams, among others. Furthermore, authors should avoid fraudulent conduct in the research and publication process, which occurs when data or conclusions are published that were not generated by experiments or observations but by invention/fabrication or falsification/manipulation, including the modification or omission of crucial data or results. ArTeS adheres to COPE code (Code of Conduct and Best Practices Guidelines for Journals Editors, Committee on Publication Ethics).
