ArchiDOCT accepts manuscripts from PhD students and early career researchers who have completed their PhD no more than 5 years before submission.

ArchiDOCT is published two times a year, in July and February. The official language of the journal is English. Submitted manuscripts for review should not exceed 4500 words, including abstracts, references and image captions. The referring system will be the Harvard System. Text should be saved in a Microsoft Word or RTF file, while the supporting visual material (images, diagrams, sketches, tables and so on) should be sent as TIFF files with a resolution of at least 300 dpi.

Only authors who made a significant contribution to the manuscript should be named as authors. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors are listed in the publication and have agreed to its submission and to the publication of the final version of the manuscript.

Duplicate submission and Plagiarism:

Papers describing essentially the same research should not be published in more than one journal or primary publication. Hence, authors should not submit a manuscript that has already been published in another journal. Authors should ensure that they have properly acknowledged the work of others, and that they have cited all publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

ArchiDOCT uses plagiarism checker software to preclude against violations of academic integrity. When plagiarism becomes evident post-publication, we may correct or retract the original publication depending on the degree of plagiarism, context within the published article and its impact on the overall integrity of the published study.

Fundamental errors: Should authors discover significant errors or inaccuracies in their own work at any stage of the process, it is their obligation to promptly notify the journal’s editors. If the article has already been published, it is the authors’ responsibility to cooperate with them to either correct the paper in the form of an erratum or retract the paper.

Peer Review and Decision

The editors ensure that all submitted manuscripts being considered for publication undergo peer review by at least two reviewers who are experts in the field.

The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for deciding which of the manuscripts submitted to the journal will be published based on the validation of the work in question, its importance to researchers and readers, the reviewer’s comments, and such legal requirements as are currently in force regarding copyright and plagiarism. The Editor-in-Chief may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision. Manuscripts are exclusively evaluated according to their relevance to the journal’s scope and the originality, clarity, importance and validity of the study/work. Decisions to edit and publish are not determined by any governmental bodies, institutions or other agencies outside the journal itself.
