Author Guidelines

The journal VLC arquitectura. Research Journal does not have either article submission charges or article processing charges (APCs).

VLC arquitectura considers only work that has not been published elsewhere. One reason for this is that the scientific literature can be skewed by redundant publication, with important consequences, for example, if results are inadvertently included more than once into meta-analyses.

Authors should list research funders on research papers. Funding for any type of publication, for example, by a commercial company, charity or government department, should be stated within the publication. Other sources of support for publications should be clearly identified in the manuscript, usually in an acknowledgment.

Authors have a right to appeal editorial decisions through the communication channel established at Polipapers platform (OJS).

About the language of articles

Authors must submit their accepted and definitive manuscripts in English (U.S. spelling) and in the original language (if Latin, see section "Languages"). First manuscripts that are under consideration by the editorial board and the respective reviewers can refer to a single language, the one preferred by the author within permissible ones. If the item is sent in English in the first version, this will be the only published version.

Language policy update (2017.07.05): In order to reach a wider and specialized scope of potential reviewers, articles submitted directly in English will now have priority in the review and editing processes, as well as in the publication schedule.
