Editorial Guidelines
  • listLista delle norme redazionali

    This handbook describes the main editorial guidelines adopted in the journal. For special cases and further indications (such as the list of permitted abbreviations), please refer to the complete editorial guidelines of the Edizioni Ca’ Foscari:

    https://edizionicafoscari.unive.it/media/pdf/pubblicare-con-noi/ecf_norme_en.pdf


    I. Composition of the text

    The journal publishes articles (40,000 characters with spaces), notes (10,000 characters with spaces) and book reviews (5,000 characters with spaces, including bibliographic data and number of pages of the work reviewed, without footnotes).

    Formatting the Word file: limit formatting to what is strictly necessary, adopting 12 characters and avoiding small caps, special styles and line spacing other than 1. A particular case is constituted by long text citations. The use of bold is allowed for titles.

    Dates, numbers, measures

    The numbers must be indicated in abbreviated form omitting the parts that do not change (except for the so-called ‘teens’, 11-19). For example: 1960-5, 270-1, 256-70, 311-18 (n.b.), 1,000, 120 × 240 cm; 5 March-7 May; il Eighteenth Century; the Thirties.

    Citations within the text

    If less than 10 words in length, they remain in the body of the text in double quotation marks (“ ”). Lines are separated by the sign |. If longer than 10 words, the citations must be:

    • without quotation marks
    • detached from the body of the text by means of a simple white line before and one after
    • indented 1 cm to the left of the main text body
    • ended with a full stop.

    Quotation within quotation: single high quotation marks (‘...’) within double quotation marks (“ ”).

    Source citations should be in the original language. The translation of the quoted text, if necessary, follows immediately, in brackets and in round characters.

    Omissions in the body of the quotes are marked with ‘[...]’.

    Foreign words and translations

    If not included in the Treccani dictionary (http://www.treccani.it/vocabolario/), they must be written in italics. Transliterations are also italicized. Relevant translations go between round brackets immediately after the term. Example: Totenmal (funerary monument).

    Emphasis

    High quotation marks (‘’) can also be used to highlight a ‘concept’, highlight the precise meaning of a ‘term’, signal the ‘idiomatic’, ‘metaphorical’ or ‘improper’ use of a word.

    Titles

    The titles of literary, pictorial, sculptural, photographic, cinematographic, theatrical, musical, etc. works are italicized with capital letters.

    Trait d’union

    • Use ‘-’ in lists and in cases such as: John Pope-Hennessy, 1960-67, May 2-June 5
    • Use ‘–’ to introduce parenthesis and bring sentences into direct speech (e.g. in dialogues)
    • Do not use ‘-’, but use the comma to distinguish the surnames of authors in the Abbreviations in the footnotes, and the semicolon to separate each group Surname-Name in the final Bibliography.


    II. Bibliographic references

    Abbreviations in the footnotes.

    Write the author’s surname, the year of publication and the page number preceded by a comma only. This abbreviation refers to every occurrence, avoiding the use of idem, ibidem, and similar expressions.

    Examples:

      Rossi 2010, 25-7
      Rossi 2010, 234 fn. 23 [footnote 23]
      Rossi, Bianchi 2010 [coauthors]
      Rossi, Bianchi, Verdi 2010 [coauthors]
      Rossi et al. 2010 [more than three authors]
      M. Rossi 2010, G. Rossi 2010 [authors with the same surname]
      Rossi 2010a, 2010b [more works by the same author appearing in the same year]
      Rossi 2010, 2011 [more works by the same author, but published in different years]
      Rossi, s.d., 34 [undated work on the title page and in the imprint]
      Rossi, forthcoming [to be published soon]; Bianchi (oral communication)
      BSI 1985 [= ‘British Standards Institution’, similar abbreviations are to be found in the final bibliography]
      Rossi 2008, 2, 2: 630 fn. 15 [= ‘volume’ 2, ‘tome’ 2: ‘page’ 630, ‘footnote’ 15]

    If an edition or a translation of ancient, medieval or early modern texts is cited, at the first occurrence a unique topological reference is provided (e.g. book, chapter, paragraph; song, verse, verse, etc.) and declare the edition or translation used; in subsequent citations the univocal topological reference is sufficient. To indicate in an abbreviated form the edition or translation of similar texts, reference is made to the name of the publisher/translator, rather than that of the author.

    For the citation of works of Greco-Roman antiquity, refer to the abbreviations contained in the dictionaries compiled by Henry George Liddell and Robert Scott (A Greek-English Lexicon. Oxford, 1996, http://stephanus.tlg.uci.edu /lsj/05-general_abbreviations.html) and by Luigi Castiglioni and Scevola Mariotti (Il vocabolario della lingua latina. Turin, 1966 and subsequent editions), italicizing the abbreviation relating to the title of the work.

    Examples:

      Tuc., Hist., 7, 3, 18 [= book 7, chapter 3, paragraph 18]; Piccirilli 1985, 107
      Verg., Aen., 1, v. 127 [= book 1, line 127]; Calzecchi Onesti, 20
      Mk 1,17 [= the Gospel according to Mark, chapter 1, line 17]

    For the items of dictionaries and encyclopedias, the surname of the author of the form and the date of publication are indicated. Example: Rossi 2004, 7. To which in the final bibliography will correspond:

    Rossi, M. (2004). s.v. “Bianchi, Antonio”. Enciclopedia degli autori italiani. http://www.enciclopediaautoriintaliani.org/articles/antonio-bianchi.

    For manuscripts, the conservation institution and the fund are indicated in abbreviated form. Page numbers are not preceded by abbreviations; the column ones are instead introduced by ‘col./coll.’ and the paper ones by ‘c./cc.’, which is the abbreviation to be adopted if the paper sheet is bound; ‘fol./foll.’ is the abbreviation to be preferred if the sheet is loose. In the latter two cases whether the number of paper or sheet refers to the front and/or the reverse is also indicated. The use of the abbreviation ‘ms’, where superfluous, is omitted. Example: ASV, ASC, numerazione rossa, pratica 614, b. 4235, fasc. 3, cc. 2r-v, 3v [numerazione moderna]; ASV, ASC, b. 4235, s.p. [ma 44].

    Final bibliography

    Abbreviations relating to bibliographic entries are listed after the text of the article. The items are listed in alphabetical order and, for the same author, from the oldest to the most recent. Each bibliographic entry reports, in the language of the cited publication:

    • Extended surname of the author or editor. The author’s name must be pointed. Surname and Name must repeated at each occurrence.
    • Year of publication in round brackets.
    • Title and subtitle (separated by periods).
    • Total number of volumes; number of the single volume and its title, if one in particular is mentioned.
    • Publication data (place of publication: publisher), except for periodicals.
    • Page numbers (for articles in journals and essays in miscellany).
    • Series (optional).
    • The additions to the data available within the publication are indicated in square brackets.

Policy
  • Complete journal policy

    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

    Stylesheet

    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

    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. 

    Quotations

    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. 

    Emendations

    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

    Goal

    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). 

    Confidentiality

    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”. 

    Plagiarism

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