Politique de publication

ELAD-SILDA is an open access journal whose articles are freely and immediately accessed, without any cost. The journal does not charge any submission or publication fees.

In keeping with the languages studied by the researchers at the Centre d’Études Linguistiques - Corpus, Discours et Sociétés, submissions in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian and Spanish are welcome, particularly contrastive studies. Following the three areas of research developed by the Centre d’Études Linguistiques - Corpus, Discours et Sociétés, submissions can focus on phonetic, phonological, morphological, syntactic, lexical, pragmatic and/or stylistic phenomena, from a theoretical perspective or from an applied perspective on discourse analysis. ELAD-SILDA is corpus-oriented, and submissions should aim to establish a systematic and narrow link between the linguistic phenomena under scrutiny and their actual usage in specific discursive contexts.

Review policy

Review process: double blind peer review.

Average time from submission to publication: 20 to 30 weeks, depending on the date of submission.

The double-blind evaluation process is carried out anonymously, for both the evaluators and the author, by experts in the discipline. The members of the scientific committee evaluate the submissions, assisted by external experts solicited according to the specificities of each issue.

Each issue is directed by one or more guest editors. The editors appoint a scientific committee composed of a dozen members who are experts in the theme of the issue and who will evaluate the submissions, assisted by the members of the journal’s permanent scientific committee.

Upon receipt of the articles, the editor-in-chief and/or the guest editors send the submitted articles to the evaluators, who are members of the scientific committee of the issue and of the journal. Each anonymized article is sent to two experts for evaluation, who then send their evaluation reports to the journal’s editorial team. The evaluations indicate whether the article submission is rejected, accepted with major modifications, accepted with minor modifications, or accepted as it is. Evaluators are asked to provide constructive and benevolent comments so that the authors can improve their contribution and thus increase their chances of publication. In case of divergent evaluations, the opinion of a third expert is sought by the guest editors, and a final decision is made by the scientific committee of the issue. The journal editorial team then sends the anonymous evaluation reports of each evaluator to the authors.

Once the article submission is accepted with minor or major modifications, the article revised with the evaluators’ comments is sent to the same experts a second time. They formulate a new opinion (rejected, accepted with major modifications, accepted with minor modifications, or accepted as it is) which is sent anonymously to the authors. The authors can thus take into consideration the new remarks of the evaluators before sending the final version of their article.
