Editorial process

Code of Conduct

Editors are committed to prevent the publication of any work where research misconduct has occurred, including plagiarism, citation manipulation, and data falsification/fabrication. In the event that editors are made aware of any allegation of research misconduct relating to a published article, they shall follow COPE’s guidelines in dealing with these allegations.

Any relevant competing interests shall be published alongside the contribution; if competing interests are revealed after publication, an appropriate correction shall be published.

Contributions from editors undergo the normal double-blind review process and reviewers are chosen by non-contributing editors.

Editors encourage data sharing where appropriate. Making data available to reviewers may be required in case of suspected research misconduct. Authors should retain raw data after publication, also with a view to any potential polemical responses.

An article may include a link to a separate online data set which complements, fleshes out, or illustrates the argument. This will be especially useful in case of data sets which may be difficult or impossible to contain in the manuscript. However, the article must form a coherent whole and be comprehensible also without accessing the data set.

Suggestions for post-publication discussions and corrections are taken under advisement by the Editors, who will consult the authors and, where appropriate, also the reviewers before taking a decision on whether to publish a polemic or correction.

Ethical oversight is ensured by the Editorial Board; editors address any ethical issues that may arise during regular Board meetings.

Review process

In most cases the editorial process starts with a prospective Author submitting an article proposal, which does not require a full manuscript submission. After an internal discussion, with at least two editors opting for further processing, the Author is notified about the journal’s preliminary interest in the publication of the manuscript. In other cases the Author receives an email that explains the Editorial Board’s decision not to accept the proposal. The email may contain an invitation to resubmit the proposal after specific revisions or to submit a different proposal in the future.

On submission, manuscripts are evaluated by the editors, and then anonymously by two reviewers (double blind review) with regard to original contribution to the field, research integrity, and standards of publishability (appropriate methodology, clarity of argumentation, etc.). Reviewers are selected by the Editorial Board from among Polish and international specialists in the relevant field while ensuring that there is no conflict of interest. The reviewer’s recommendation options are: ‘Accept’, ‘Accept after revisions’, ‘I would like to see the article after revisions and will then make a recommendation’, and ‘Reject’.

The Author receives the reviewers’ evaluations, which are usually accompanied by comments from the Editorial Board. Two ‘Reject’ recommendations prevent a manuscript from further processing, in which case the Author receives a detailed explanation of the rejection decision. In cases cases where the recommendation is to ‘Accept’ or ‘Accept with revisions, the Authors receive a detailed list of suggested corrections suggested by the reviewers and editors. After the Author submits a revised manuscript, the final decision whether to accept a manuscript for publication or not lies with the Editorial Board. Occasionally the manuscript may be sent to an extra reviewer.

The author has the right to explain in an email to the Editorial Board why they disagree with particular criticisms or suggestions from the reviewers or the editors. The Author can also appeal a rejection decision, in which case the Editorial Board may contact the manuscript’s reviewers for further advice.

Only scholarly articles undergo the peer-review process. We also publish book reviews, literary and visual works, reports or commentaries, and other materials. Such un-peer-reviewed publications are clearly marked by being placed in a separately named section (e.g. Varia, Notes, Performance, Interview.).

The Author's statements

The following statements must be accepted by the Author(s) before submitting an article proposal.

1. By submitting an article to InterAlia the author declares that they follow the general rules of academic integrity and they have not submitted the same material elsewhere and that their submission has not already been published elsewhere. In particular, the author declares that the submitted article is their own work, i.e. it does not contain any plagiarized or ghost-written material.

2. By submitting an article to InterAlia the author declares that they understand and comply with the following rules concerning authorship:

a) A person is entitled to be listed as (co-)author if their contribution to the final publication is essential, i.e. the work could not exist without it. The contribution must be substantial and direct. Every listed author should approve the final version and takes full responsibility for the entire work after its publication, both in form and content.

b) When an article is co-authored, the editors require a statement specifying each person’s individual contribution.

c) Activities such as assistance in obtaining funding, general supervision (e.g. that of a PhD supervisor or a dean), writing assistance, language editing, proofreading or translation do not amount to authorship. Honorary authorship is not acceptable. Contributors who do not meet the standards of authorship should be listed in an acknowledgment note.

d) The order in which multiple authors are listed is determined by the authors themselves and communicated to the editors by the corresponding author. We strongly encourage authors to include a note specifying the order criteria (e.g. alphabetically or by contribution share).

3. By submitting their work, the author grants to InterAlia the right to publish that work online in one of the journal’s issues. The author also grants to InterAlia the non-exclusive right to re-publish that work in translation or abridged form or other derivative form in electronic or print publications. The author further consents to having their work used under a Creative Commons Attribu­tion 4.0 Interna­tional License.

4. By submitting an article to InterAlia the author agrees to comply with InterAlia‘s policy regarding sexually explicit content. Such content is accepted under the conditions that

a) it is strictly related to the author’s argument and used for analytic rather than illustrative purposes, and

b) its use – if potentially problematic from certain feminist, queer or trans* perspectives – is well justified by the author on academic and ethical grounds.
