*/VANISHING POINTS /SECTION*
Acceptance of articles for the section “Vanishing Points”: *from October
20th to November 20th 2019*
/L'Atalante. Revista de estudios cinematográficos/accepts submissions of
unpublished essays on topics related to film theory and/or praxis that
stand out for their innovative nature. Articles should focus on
approaches to the cinematographic fact made preferably from the
perspectives of historiography or audiovisual analysis. Those texts that
approach novel objects of study with rigorous and well-evidenced
methodologies will be appreciated. Articles that take as their main
reference the processes of signification through the analysis of the
audiovisual form and/or the narratological elements specific to our
field, focusing on methodologies specifically related to the treatment
of the image will be favoured in the selection process. Although we
accept works with other methodologies that approach the filmic fact from
transversal perspectives (Cultural Studies, philological approaches,
etc.) we consider that the main interest of the journal is located on
the studies that take the specifically cinematographic expressive tools
as the main elements of discourse. Likewise, texts that are not limited
to describing, enumerating or summarizing details of the plot, but that
rigorously apply a specific and well-evidenced analysis methodology,
reaching particular and novel results, will be given priority.
Below are a few aspects to keep in mind:
- Submissions must be original and must conform to the submission
guidelines of the journal and to the standards and scientific rigour
expected of an academic publication
- Submissions will be evaluated for the originality of the topic
explored, especially if it relates to an issue not previously addressed
in the publication. Submissions dealing with topics previously addressed
in the journal may be rejected. The content of the issues published to
date can be consulted on the journal's website.
- All submissions will undergo an external peer review process that will
respect the anonymity of both authors and reviewers (double blind peer
review) in an effort to prevent any possibility of bias. In the event of
a very high number of submissions, the Editorial Board will make a prior
selection of the articles to be peer reviewed, choosing the articles
deemed the most appropriate for the issue. Failure to observe the
submission guidelines and/or standards of originality and academic
rigour will result in rejection of the submission by the Editorial Board
without external review.
- Authors of accepted submissions will be contacted within six months.
- Articles (which should be between 5,000 and 7,000 words including all
sections) must be submitted via the website of the journal as .rtf, .odt
or .docx files, using the template provided for this purpose. Files
containing the author's statement (.pdf) and any images (.psd, .png,
.jpg, .tiff) must be uploaded to the website as complementary files. A
detailed version of the submission guidelines can be found at the
following link. Any articles that fail to meet these requirements will
be rejected automatically.
- The selected articles will be published in a bilingual edition
(Spanish and English). The authors of the texts accepted for publication
must pay the costs that result from the translation or revision - in the
case of providing, along with the original, a translated version - of
their article. In all cases, and in order to guarantee the quality of
the translations and the unity of linguistic criteria, the text must be
translated or reviewed by the translator recommended by the journal. His
work will be paid in advance and via Paypal by the authors.
- /L'Atalante/ does not offer any compensation for published articles.
