As 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 author(s) must register (Login/Password) on the Journal's website, correctly complete their profiles, and choose the "AUTHOR" option. After performing these steps, they should go to "ACTIVE SUBMISSIONS" and start the submission process through the link "CLICK HERE TO START THE SUBMISSION PROCESS," in which they will perform the five basic steps:
After completing the five steps described above, the author(s) must wait for the Editor's email. These are the following steps:
CadLin defends the principles of the declaration of ethics and good practices in publication, based on the Code of Conduct and Standards of Good Practice for Committee Editors of the Committee on Ethics in Publication - COPE.
Authorship. Submitted papers must be original and not have been published or submitted to any other journal or book. At the time of submission, the author(s) must express agreement with the statement above. Authorship rights are limited to those who contributed significantly to the development of the research, data interpretation, and the development of the article and must be acknowledged following the CRediT taxonomy.
Plagiarism. CadLin uses software in order to ensure that the submitted articles are free from plagiarism. Plagiarism, including duplicate publication of the author's own work, in whole or in part without proper citation is not tolerated by the Journal. If the manuscript is within acceptable limits of similar contents then the article shall be processed further for review.
Conflict of Interest. Authors and reviewers must explicitly and individually declare any potential conflict of interest of financial, political, academic, or commercial origin. Please refer to CadLin's Conflict of Interest Policy for details.
The policy of the CadLin is to publish papers only if the data, methods used in the analysis, and materials used to conduct the research are clearly and precisely documented and are maximally available to any researcher for purposes of reproducing the results or replicating the procedure. All materials supporting the claims made by the author must be made available to the journal prior to publication. The journal will verify that the findings are replicable using the author’s data and methods of analysis. Failure to replicate at this stage may result in the paper not being published.
The policy of the CadLin is to publish papers where authors indicate whether or not the conducted research was preregistered with or without an analysis plan in an independent, institutional registry (e.g., ClinicalTrials.gov, AEA RCT Registry, OSF, EGAP Registry, RIDIE). Preregistration of studies involves registering the study design, variables, and treatment conditions. Including an analysis plan involves specification of sequence of analyses or the statistical model that will be reported. link to the preregistration in an institutional registry must be made available to the journal prior to publication. The journal will verify that preregistration adheres to the specifications for preregistration and then if the authors apply for it, a certification of the preregistrationin will be included in the article.
If the authors did preregister the research with or without an analysis plan, they must (i) confirm in the text that the study was registered prior to conducting the research with links to the timestamped preregistrations at the institutional registry, and that the preregistration adheres to the disclosure requirements of the institutional registry; (ii) report all preregistered analyses in the text. In case an analysis plan is included, the authors must report if there were changes in the plan following preregistration. Those changes must be disclosed with explanation for the changes. Finally, the authors must clearly distinguish in text analyses that were preregistered from those that were not, such as having separate sections in the results for confirmatory and exploratory analyses.
The policy of CadLin is to encourage submission of replication studies, particularly of research published in this journal. When possible, replication studies are reviewed in two stages following the Registered Reports format. In particular, the first stage of review is conducted prior to the data being collected or, for existing datasets, before the outcomes are observed.
On initial submission, authors should denote in a cover letter that the manuscript is Registered Report submission and confirm that the data do not exist, or that the outcomes have not been observed, and include a full manuscript for the abstract, introduction, and methods without the results and discussion sections. The methods must contain a complete analysis plan of what is to be included in the full article. If the submission passes initial review, then the authors will receive an inprinciple acceptance prior to data collection or analysis of the outcomes. For the second stage of review, authors submit a complete manuscript. Reviewers assess the extent to which the authors followed the preregistered design and/or analysis plan and evaluate nonoutcome relevant criteria (e.g., manipulation checks) to confirm whether the research was an effective test of the research question.
Brandt, et al. (2014) offer helpful guidelines for convincing replications, which we strongly encourage authors to read before undertaking a replication project. CadLin encourages authors to approach replications in a value-neutral way. If an experiment does not replicate it does not indicate that the results from the original experiment should now be considered invalid and it certainly does not imply that the original research team did anything “wrong.”
Manuscripts submitted to CadLin must be previously deposited in a preprint server that supports public commenting. The first page of your preprint must contain the following statement: “Submitted to CadLin. Participate in open peer review by commenting directly on this preprint.”
Cadernos de Linguística accepts submissions in the following categories:
Experience Report: Complete and concise report of professional experience, of social and scientific relevance, and with results even if partial.
Literature Review: Summaries of research or meta-analyses, with a critical evaluation of material already published, explaining possible gaps and advances in the area in focus. Ideally, the text should describe the search bases and criteria for performing this search, the period and descriptors considered and the method of analysis of the material found.
Theoretical Essay: Analysis of theoretical constructs and discussion of themes and problems of theoretical fundamentals leading to the questioning of existing models, critical reflection on themes or concepts, culminating in notes that suggest a critical and innovative perspective in the field of Linguistics and its interfaces.
Pilot Study: A small-scale preliminary study report originating from empirical evidence-based research using scientific methodology that aims to investigate whether the crucial components of a major study will be feasible.
Project Registration: Complete description of a research project, explaining (i) the research design and study materials; (ii) the research question or hypothesis; (iii) the description of the variable results and the indicator variables, etc.
Research Report: Final report of work originating from research based on empirical data, using scientific methodology.
Tutorial: Text with the purpose of describing in a didactic way and through examples detailed information to complete a given task.
