Rassegna Iberistica was founded by Franco Meregalli and Giuseppe Bellini in 1978. Each issue publishes articles, notes and reviews, divided between the Spanish-American, Luso-Brazilian, and Catalan linguistic and cultural areas. Rassegna Iberistica is an interdisciplinary project and accepts contributions covering all aspects of Iberian and Ibero-American culture. The journal welcomes a wide range of theoretical and critical approaches, and is strongly committed to present the work of talented and innovative young scholars in the field. The journal publishes articles (30,000 characters without spaces), notes (15,000 characters without spaces) and Book Reviews (6000 characters without spaces, including bibliographic data and number of pages of the work reviewed, without footnotes). All articles are subjected to double-blind peer-review. Please, submit articles to the Managing Editor: Margherita Cannavacciuolo (margherita.c@unive.it). The journal, ANVUR fascia A, is indexed in Dialnet, MLA, MIAR, IBZ Online, and International Bibliography of Book Reviews in Scholarly Literature in the Humanities and Social Sciences (IBR), and Latindex.

Ethical Code of Rassegna iberistica

Rassegna iberistica is a peer-reviewed scientific journal whose policy is inspired by the COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) Ethical Code. See the Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.

Publisher responsibilities  

The Publisher must provide the Journal with adequate resources and the guidance of experts, in order to carry out its role in the most professional way, aiming at the highest quality standard.

The Publisher must have a written agreement that defines the relationship with the owner of the Journal and/or the Editor-in-Chief. The agreement must comply with the Code of Behavior for Publishers of Scientific Journals, as established by COPE.

The relationship among the Editor-in-Chief, the Editorial Board and the Publisher is based on the principle of publishing independence. 

Editors responsibilities 

The Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board of Rassegna iberistica alone are responsible for the decision to publish the articles submitted.

Submitted articles will be sent to at least two reviewers. Final acceptance presumes the implementation of possible amendments, as required by the reviewers and under the supervision of the Rassegna iberistica Editors.

The Rassegna iberistica Editors and Editorial Board must evaluate each submitted paper in compliance with the Journalʼs policy, i.e. exclusively on the basis of its scientific content, without discrimination of race, sex, gender, creed, ethnic origin, citizenship, or the scientific, academic and political position of the Authors. 

If the Rassegna iberistica Editors and Editorial Board notice (or receive notifications of) mistakes or inaccuracies, conflict of interest or plagiarism in a published article, they will immediately warn the Author and the Publisher and will undertake the necessary actions to resolve the issue. If necessary, they will withdraw the article or publish a recantation. 

Authors responsibilities


Authors must follow the Guidelines for Authors to be downloaded from the Rassegna iberistica website. 

No multiple submissions

Authors must explicitly state that their work is original in all its parts and that the submitted paper has not been previously published, nor submitted to other journals, until the entire evaluation process is completed. Since no paper gets published without significant revision, earlier dissemination in conference proceedings or working papers does not preclude consideration for publication, but Authors are expected to fully disclose publication/dissemination of the material in other closely related publications, so that the overlap can be evaluated by the Rassegna iberistica Editors. 


Authorship must be correctly attributed; all those who have given a substantial contribution to the design, organisation and accomplishment of the research the article is based on, must be indicated as Co-Authors. The respective roles of each co-author should be described in a footnote. The statement that all authors have approved the final version should be included in the disclosure.

Conflicts of interest and financing

Authors, under their own responsibility, must avoid any conflict of interest affecting the results obtained or the interpretations suggested. The Rassegna iberistica Editors will give serious and careful consideration to suggestions of cases in which, due to possible conflict of interest, an Author’s work should not be reviewed by a specific scholar. Authors should indicate any financing agency or the project the article stems from. 


Authors must see to it that all works consulted be properly quoted. If works or words of others are used, they have to be properly paraphrased or duly quoted. Citations between “double quotes” (or «angled quotation marks» if the text is written in a language other than English) must reproduce the exact wording of the source; under their own responsibility, Authors should carefully refrain from disguising a restyling of the source’s wording, as though it was the original formulation. 

Ethical Committee

Whenever required, the research protocols must be authorised in advance by the Ethical Committee of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. 


When Authors find a mistake or an inaccuracy in their own article, they must immediately warn the Rassegna iberistica Editors, providing all the information needed to make the due adjustments. 

Reviewers responsibilities


By means of the peer-review procedure, reviewers assist the Rassegna iberistica Editors and Editorial Board in taking decisions on the articles submitted. They are expected to offer the Authors suggestions as to possible adjustments aimed at improving their contribution submission. 

Timing and conflicts of interest

If a reviewer does not feel up to the task of doing a given review, or if she/he is unable to read the work within the agreed schedule, she/he should notify the Rassegna iberistica Editors. Reviewers must not accept articles for which there is a conflict of interest due to previous contributions or to a competition with a disclosed author (or with an author they believe to have identified). 


The content of the reviewed work must be considered confidential and must not be used without explicit authorisation by the author, who is to be contacted via the editor-in-chief. Any confidential information obtained during the peer review process should not be used for other purposes.

Collaborative attitude

Reviewers should see themselves not as adversaries but as advocates for the field. Any comment must be done in a collaborative way and from an objective point of view. Reviewers should clearly motivate their comments and keep in mind the Golden Rule of Reviewing: “Review for others as you would have others review for you”. 


Reviewers should report any similarity or overlapping of the work under analysis with other works known to them. 

Authors who publish with this Journal/Series agree to the following terms:

  1. Open Access publishing is at no cost. Therefore, the Publisher (ECF) charges a fee of 8€ (+VAT) per page (2000 characters, spaces included) for each article or monograph, after acceptance. This fee applies for Journals/Series or series affiliated with Institutions or Research entities not linked with Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.
  2. If the Journals/Series or series is affiliated to Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, publication fees are met by the single Departments on the basis of specific arrangements between the Departments and ECF.
  3. In any case, Authors’ institutions – and not individual Authors – will be charged.
In case of an article of monograph with particular features or complex content (non-western languages, non-standard graphic elaborations, etc.), Authors’ institutions may be charged with extra fees, to be determined by ECF.

To find out more, please contact Edizioni Ca’ Foscari’s editorial staff at ecf@unive.it

Every article published by ECF was accepted for publication by no less than two qualified reviewers as a result of a process of anonymous reviewing (double-blind peer review).

The reviewers are independent of the authors and not affiliated with the same institution.

The Journal’s/Series’ Scientific Director guarantees the proper execution of the peer review process for every article published in the Journal/Series. The evaluation is conducted in accordance with the following criteria:
Revision policies for the different sections:

  • Complete volume/issue: subject to peer review
  • Monographs/essays/articles: subject to peer review
  • Introductions, prefaces: no peer review
  • Reviews: no peer review
  • Editorials: no peer review
For a complete description of the process, please see: Scientific Certification of the Works Published by ECF
