Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
ArticlesSection default policy
As part of the Open Access Journal Initiative for the Global Exchange of Knowledge, readers are freely allowed to download, read, and print the full text papers of Historicus without prior permission from the PHS or the author, as long as they acknowledge/cite Historicus as the original source. Research papers submitted to JOCSSES should be original and should not be under consideration by some other publisher at the same time. Authors warrant that they are the sole owners of their research work and that their submission is not an infringement of any copyright, trade secret, or other proprietary rights and will indemnify the society for any breach of such warranty.
The names and email addresses entered in this journal site will be used exclusively for the stated purposes of this journal and will not be made available for any other purpose or to any other party.
Publication ethics guidelines exist to guarantee high-quality research publications, public confidence in scientific discoveries, and credit for their study and ideas.
All manuscripts are subject to peer review and should follow academic performance requirements. The submissions shall be accepted by peer reviewers, whose names remain confidential to their authors, as authorized by the publisher. Our editorial team will periodically pursue guidance on, for example, serious legal, security, biosecurity, and/or society implications outside of regular peer review. Before deciding on suitable measures, we can contact experts and the Academic Editor, including hiring reviewers with special experience but not limited to evaluating additional editors and refraining from further consideration.
Authors shall not use without reference the titles, facts, or ideas of anyone. At the point at which the references are used both should be referenced, and wording reuse restricted and attributed to or quoted in the document. Manuscripts that have been considered to be plagiarised by other writers of a manuscript are disqualified or may be subject to rejection from publication.
Manuscripts submitted to JOCSSES publications must not be submitted anywhere and revoked until they are submitted somewhere else. Sanctions can apply to authors whose publications have been submitted elsewhere at the same time. If authors have used their work, or are now under examination, as a source for a manuscript submitted, they must mention the prior publications, and explain how their manuscript submitted varies from their previous work. It should be assigned or cited in the text the reuse of authors' words outside the process.
Fabrication and Falsification
Authors/researchers of manuscripts or written papers proven to have produced or falsified the findings, including image editing, may impose fines, and articles published may be retracted.
