Submission Preparation ChecklistAs 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.
- I've read Editorial CSIC's Good Practice Code and comply with all its guidelines.
- The Authorship, good publication practice and copyright transfer statement is filled and signed, and it'll be added to the submission.
- The article has not been previously published, and has not been sent to another journal for consideration.
- The submission is an original work and does not violate the copy and reproduction rights of other authored works. If necessary, the author has written permit for the reproduced work and a copy will also be submited.
- The person making the submission has been authorized by all the article authors to submit and act as their spokesperson in front of the journal during the review, editing and publishing processes.
- I have consulted and applied the journal's Research data policy.
- The article is adapted to the Microsoft Word template provided by the journal.
- The text adheres to the length, format, references, citation of figures, tables and equations (if applicable), and bibliography requirements outlined in the journal guidelines.
Each of the authors has been identified including the following data:
- Given name (in full form) and family name(s).
- Email contact address.
- Country of professional activity.
- Institutional affiliation.
- Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier (ORCID).
- Role/roles according to the CRediT taxonomy.
- TWO versions of the article are sent. The first one is a Microsoft Word, or compatible file, which includes all the information related to the authors as well as the images, tables and any other graphic content. A second file, in PDF format, includes the same content as the first file, but excludes any information that may help to identify the author(s): name and affiliation, CRediT role/roles, self-citations, personal notes, metadata of the PDF file, etc. The second version will be used for the peer review process; therefore, all contents will be exactly the same in these two files, except for the modifications necessary to anonymise the PDF file. For the removal of metadata you can use specific software or one of the many free tools available on the Internet.
