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 or Microsoft Word document file format (file extensions .rtf, .doc, .docx, .odt).
  • 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 contributor’s guidelines.
  • I acknowledge and accept that published content will be released under the CC4.0-BY-SA license (as presented at https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/).

Essays

The English language is the recommended submission language, along with the Italian language. Submission in the major European languages may be considered for double-blind peer review as long as the author(s) commit to provide an English translation of their work if it is accepted for publication.

The journal Editors-in-chief have a preliminary say whether to admit or reject the anonymized submission, based on the article's adherence to Galilaeana scientific scopes and aims.

Preliminarily accepted articles undergo a double-blind peer-review process by at least two experts in the field. Only up to one of the experts may be a member of the journal's Scientific committee.

The outcome of the peer-review process is binding. Should the opinions be incompatible, the editors will seek a third review.

Upon receiving reviewer reports, the Editors-in-chief decide whether to further pursue publication of the manuscript (either requesting the author revise and resubmit their manuscript, accepting, or rejecting it). The decision letter sent to authors will be accompanied by the expert reviewers’ reports within 16 weeks from the submission date.

The submission file must include:

  • Title (both in the submission’s language and in English)
  • Contact person (will be removed by the journal’s editorial team for anonymity purposes)
  • English abstract (ca. 150 words)
  • Keywords (three to five are recommended)
  • Article body (max 12.000 words, including footnotes. Longer papers may be considered by prior arrangement with the Editors-in-chief). 
  • References
