Paper submission guidelines

We use double-blind system for peer-review; both reviewers and authors’ identities remain anonymous.

Only papers based on a reflection about space in literature and other arts will be considered for publication.

From 2017 onwards, the Topus journal will be published both in Potuguese and English. The authors of manuscripts which have been accepted for publication are expected to meet the deadlines mentioned in the acceptance notification email, with regard to the submission of the English version of their text. The journal will assign reviewers to assess the English version of the paper. The assessment will focus on the quality of the translation, that is, its adequacy to the standards of a scientific text.

Authors who submit a paper originally in English, are expected, in due time, to provide a portuguese version of that same manuscript.
