Types of Decisions


Following peer review, the paper is judged not to be acceptable for publication in DIGLOSIA and resubmission is not possible. This status is obtained if the script does not match the template; is too high a plagiarism rate; or is not in accordance with the scope of the specified field of study.


The submitted version of the paper is not acceptable and requires major revision but there is clear potential in the work and DIGLOSIA is prepared to consider a new version. Authors are offered the opportunity to resubmit their paper as a new submission. Concerns will remain regarding the suitability of the paper for publication until the editors are convinced by the authors that their paper fits the scope and standards of DIGLOSIA. The resubmitted manuscript will be returned to the original associate editor if at all possible.


The paper requires changes before a final decision can be made. Authors are asked to modify their manuscript in light of comments received from referees and editors and to submit a new version for consideration within 2—4 weeks of receiving the decision letter. A point-by-point explanation of how comments have been addressed must be supplied with the revised version of the paper. Revisions may undergo further peer review and papers may undergo more than one round of revision. If the authors do not revise their papers to the satisfaction of the editors, the paper can still be declined from publication in DIGLOSIA.


The paper is acceptable for publication, subject to conditions that need to be addressed in producing a final version of the manuscript. These may include sub-editing changes and minor amendments to ensure the paper fully matches our criteria. After final checking in the editorial office, acceptance is confirmed and the paper is forwarded to the publishers for publication.
