FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)
1.-Where is this journal indexed?
Its indexing is extensive and can be seen in section 1.4 (About). On the Home page, you will also find a specific reference to its indexing in Scopus.
2.-Are there 'call for papers' with specific deadlines?
No, there are not; the possibility of submitting a paper is always open.
3.-How much time is there between the submission of a paper and its acceptance?
We do our best to provide constructive feedback to our contributors in the shortest possible time, but there is no a predefined time to do it in each review round, nor there is a predetermined number of rounds. Although the variation is significant among articles (it depends mostly on reviewers and authors), at the end of each one published readers can find the dates on which the manuscript was received and accepted (see 2.5 Peer review process).
4.-Do you publish 'special issues'?
Our policy is not to publish 'special issues'. However, on exceptional occasions it can be contemplated, especially when there is a collaboration with an international scientific event.
5.-What kind of documents are published in this journal?
Just research papers and book reviews. However, the Editorial Board/Team could consider a different proposal in the application of this editorial policy.
6.-Regarding research papers, what is its maximum length?
As a fully online journal, this fact provides some flexibility in this regard. However, the maximum recommended length is 10.000 words, including all types of tables, figures, illustrations, acknowledgements and references (see 1.6 Author Guidelines, General overview, and 4 Submissions).
7.-Is there any Article Processing Charge?
No, there is not. ET is a journal 100% open access and no charges of any kind apply to authors or readers (see 1.1 Presentation). Since we serve contributors for free, please make our work easier by following the guidelines for the submission and review of your original manuscripts (subsection 1.6), which includes the insertion of your Publication Metadata: Title (and Subtitle, if any), Abstract, List of Contributors, Keywords and References.
It is also very important to bear in mind that a written accreditation by a professional translator about the correctness of the (British or American) English language used is necessary (see section 4. Submissions).
8.-Is it possible to submit an article by email? What could I do if I have problems accessing the journal platform?
No, it is not. Electronic submission through the online platform is mandatory (see 1.6 Author Guidelines, Overview, and 4 Submissions).
In case you suffer any problem accessing the platform and need of technical assistance (check firstly the anti-spam folder of your email account), please contact Ms Eva García, from Huelva University Press, and ask for her support: firstname.lastname@example.org
9.-What is the main principle that governs this journal?
Our fundamental principle is quality over quantity (see 1.1 Presentation). Obviously, the submission of a paper implies its originality, which means that it has not been published or presented in any other journal or any other outlet (see 1.6 Guidelines for authors, General description, and 4 Submissions).
10.-Is any anti-plagiarism software used?
Yes, of course. To ensure the originality of the manuscripts, the editor uses the Turnitin tool (see 2.10 Anti-plagiarism).
