Editorial Policies

Focus and Scope

Triangle is an open access electronic publication devoted to any topic related to language, literature and computation.

Triangle is addressed to a specialized audience interested in the adoption of new methods (especially formal and computational) in the study of language and literature.

Triangle was born in 2010 with the aim of promoting interdisciplinary research in the fields of linguistics, literary studies and computer science. Intedisciplinarity and collaboration between different areas of knowledge improve results and allow progress in any field of knowledge. Therefore, Triangle intends to disseminate original, relevant, innovative and high-quality papers in the space of confluence of those three research areas.

 

The journal name, Triangle, intends to reflect, through the three vertices of the figure, the three topics of interest for this publication (language, literature and computation) and aims to evidence that preference is given to articles that focus on the edges of the triangle, this is, works that relate, at least, two of the three involved disciplines.

Triangle welcomes contributions in any of the three journal areas: linguistics, literary studies and computer science. However, preference is given to articles involving/relating at least two of the vertices of the triangle. Studies relating language and literature or any of these two disciplines with computation will be warmly received. 

Contributions to Triangle may be made in any of the following categories/forms:

1. Papers that report significant new research in any of the journal topics.

2. Monographic Issues containing the contribution of a single author that focuses on new research results or that presents didactic introductions to new research topics or that surveys the state of the art of an area in order to provide a good starting point for non-experts. 

3. Special Issues containing a collection of essays/articles, written by several researchers, around a well-established topic.

Peer Review Process

The review and selection of submissions is carried out as follows:

1. Firstly, the Editorial Board checks whether the journal’s requirements for submissions are fulfilled, judges whether the author guidelines have been followed in the preparation of the manuscript and assess if the paper fits in the thematic areas covered by the journal.

2. Secondly, submissions that pass the first filter will undergo, in a second step, an external peer review. Triangle follows a double-blind refereeing procedure. The identities of both the author and the referees remain confidential. Each proposal will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field.  In case of discrepancy, a third peer-review will be conducted. At least one of the reviewers will be a member of the scientific committee of the journal. A second report will be carried out by an external reviewer selected ad hoc for each manuscript. The choice of reviewers for each paper will be performed by Triangle editors-in-chief and the editorial board according to the topic of the manuscript. Authors will be allowed to suggest names of potential reviewers for their work. However, the editor retains the sole right to decide whether or not suggested reviewers are contacted.

In the case of monographic and special issues, the review process will be performed in two phases: firstly, the editorial board will evaluate the volume proposal and, if it is accepted, at a second stage, the content of the volume will be peer-reviewed (in the case of special issues, we will evaluate each of the individual contributions included) following the same review policy specified above (double-blind external peer-review).

Within one week of submission, the author should have received acknowledgement of receipt of his/her manuscript. Within three months, the author should have had notification of acceptance or rejection, or a request for revision. Reports from the reviewers will be also sent to the author.

Guidelines for the submission of manuscripts

[Download the Author Guidelines & Style and Formatting Guidelines.]

Submission of a paper is taken to imply that it has not previously been published, and is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.

 Manuscripts for Triangle should be submitted electronically in two different formats: 1) a Word or LaTeX (plain) file and 2) a PDF file. 

Paper submissions should be made as anonymised files e-mail attachments to the following address triangle@urv.cat

  3. The full title of the paper.
  4. An abstract of up to 200 words summarizing the content of the paper. 

As this journal has adopted a blind reviewing policy, authors must remove all identifying features from the paper by ensuring that no author’s name appears in the main text, in-text citations, reference list, or any filename. Replace all reference to the author with “Author 2015” or “Author et al. 2004”, etc. The title of the article and the name of the journal, book, etc. should also be removed from these references. 

In the case of monographic and special issues, before submitting the manuscript, authors/editors should send a proposal of the issue including the following data:

  • Name, institution, contact details and biodata of the author(s) (monographic issue) or the guest editor(s) (special issue).
  • Title of the proposal.
  • State-of-the-art in the topic area where the proposal is placed.
  • Some arguments for why this particular area/topic should be given a special issue in Triangle.
  • In the case of special issues, a list of potential contributors (with a short biodata) and the title of the potential contributions.

11.1 Short References in Text 

When short references are included in the text, variants of the author-date-page format (American system) are used depending on the context of the sentence in which the quotation is inserted.

We include the author's surname followed by the year of publication in parentheses:

  • Como indica López Morales (1993), probablemente tampoco es cierto que… 
  • Estos estudios configuraron cuatro perspectivas de investigación (Ehlers 2010)

If necessary, the page number or page range preceded by a colon is included. 

  • Están estrechamente vinculados tanto a su contexto sociopolítico como a la funcionalidad de las lengua en ese contexto (Montrul 2013: 26).
  • Véase López Morales (1993: 40)

If the reference has two authors, we use “&” to link them.

  • “…should be considered a loanword” (Poplack & Sankoff 1984: 99-100).

If reference is made in the text to a publication written by more than two authors, the name of the first author should be used followed by “et al.” This indication, however, should never be used in the list of references.

  • Existen muchos agentes conversacionales con diferentes características, complejidad y capacidad de respuesta (Jiménez et al. 2015).

When within a parenthesis we include more than one reference, they are separated by semicolons.

  • Tal y como señalan numerosos autores (Lakoff 1995; Lozano Domingo 1995; Chambers 1994), la educación en este aspecto desempeña un papel importante. 

More than one reference from the same author in the same year must be identified by the letters “a”, “b”, “c”, etc., placed after the year of publication.

…parece que el uso del español se va reduciendo paulatinamente (Moreno Fernández 2013a).

Footnotes should not be used for citations except in cases where it is needed to refer to a URL.

 

11.2 Reference List

References should be arranged alphabetically by surnames of author. The full reference list should appear at the end of the paper.

If more than one reference by the same author is included, these will be sorted in ascending chronologicallly order.

More than one reference from the same author in the same year must be identified by the letters “a”, “b”, “c”, etc., placed after the year of publication.

 

Llisterri, J. (2003a). Las Tecnologías del Habla: Entre la Ingeniería y la Lingüística…

Llisterri, J. (2003b). Lingüística y Tecnologías del Lenguaje…

If an author’s name in the list is also mentioned with co-authors the following order should be used:

  1. First, publications of the single author, arranged according to publication dates.
  2. Secondly, publications of the same author with one co-author.
  3. Finally, publications of the author with more than one co-author.

Titles must be provided in the original language. In the case of titles using a non-Latin alphabet, the title should be transliterated. In these cases, an annotation whithin parenthesis of the type (in Russian), (in Greek), etc. should be added.

The author should make sure to provide all the data in the references.

Ethical code of the Journal

The journal Triangle is committed to maintaining ethical standards and takes as its reference the principles published by COPE (Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors). It is essential for all parties involved in the process (editors, referees and authors) to understand and heed this code’s principles.

Directors/Editors

  • Decision to publish articles: journal editors, after consulting with the editorial board, are responsible for deciding whether or not to publish submitted articles, following receipt of the verdicts of two external referees and, should there be significant discrepancies between these, that of a third referee. They agree to observe the same criteria for acceptance or rejection of articles in accordance with the originality, relevance and clarity of the same. Editors must offer mechanisms for appeal against editorial decisions to the editorial board. Likewise, they must offer complete and up-to-date instructions regarding authors’ responsibilities and the characteristics of the articles submitted to the journal.
  • Non-discrimination: Editors shall examine submitted articles without consideration of the race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnic origin, country of origin, nationality or political orientation of the authors.
  • Confidentiality: editors and other staff associated with the journal agree not to disclose information about the articles received to persons other than the actual author or the referees. Likewise, they guarantee that the procedure shall be conducted in such a way that the anonymity of the referees and authors is guaranteed under all circumstances.
  • Conflict of interests and disclosure: editors agree not to use the results of submitted articles in their own research work unless they receive the author’s explicit consent.
  • Errata: editors shall publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies should they be necessary.
  • Quality: the opinions of the authors, referees and editorial board shall be requested in order to improve the editorial procedure.

Authors

  • Authorship of the text: a submitted article must be signed by its author and, if relevant, by any other person that has made a significant contribution to the planning, organisation, development or processing of the research on which the article is based. In cases of co-authorship, the author submitting the text must explicitly declare that the names of all of the authors appear in the article, and that they have issued their approval and consent with regard to the final version of the article that is to be published in the UAB journal.
  • Responsibility: the authors shall be held liable for the content of their manuscripts.
  • Plagiarism and originality: the authors declare that every part of the text submitted to the journal is original and that all of the sources used have been correctly cited.
  • Access to and conservation of data: authors of articles must clarify, by request of the editors, the sources or data on which their research is based; this data must be conserved for a reasonable period of time after publication and may be disclosed if necessary.
  • Multiple, repetitive or conflicting publications: the author must not publish articles that present the same research in more than one journal at the same time.
  • Conflict of interests and disclosure: the authors shall explicitly declare that there is no conflict of interests that may have conditioned the results of their research or the proposed interpretations. They shall also indicate the sources of funding for the research, if applicable, as well as the project that their article forms part of.
  • Errors in published articles: should an author notice any relevant errors or inaccuracies in a published article, these must be reported to the editors of the journal and all information required to make the necessary corrections must be provided.

Referees

  • Expert reviews: the double blind review system shall be employed, a procedure that helps the editors and the editorial board to make decisions about submitted articles while also enabling the authors to make improvements to their work.
  • Respect for deadlines: after agreeing to review an article, referees must respect the agreed time periods; if they are unable to meet a deadline they should give the editors sufficient prior warning of this.
  • Confidentiality: articles submitted for review are considered confidential documents, so the referees cannot discuss them with third parties unless they have permission to do so from the editors.
  • Objectivity: reviews must be objective; personal views about the author are not to be taken into consideration and referees’ opinions of the work must be supported by appropriate and justified arguments.
  • Bibliographical indications: the referees agree to offer precise bibliographical details on important texts on the subject matter that the author may have omitted; likewise, the referees shall report to the editors on similarities or overlaps between the text received and other works, if there are any.
  • Conflict of interests and disclosure: Any reserved information that has been obtained as a result of the review procedure shall be considered confidential and may not be used for personal purposes; if the review of an article supposes a conflict with the referee’s own interests due to collaborations or competition with the author or with the institution that he/she represents, the referee must reject the review proposal.
