Editorial policy

Suc­ces­sive themed issues of Text Mat­ters are adver­tised on the jour­nal web­site which also con­tains instruc­tions for authors. The jour­nal wel­comes orig­i­nal, unpub­lished arti­cles, reviews and inter­views from all parts of the world. Con­tri­bu­tions are peer reviewed by exter­nal review­ers (dou­ble blind reviews). The final deci­sion is made by the edi­tor-in-chief and issue review­er who are assist­ed in the process by mem­bers of the edi­to­r­i­al board respon­si­ble for a par­tic­u­lar field. The jour­nal reserves the right to imme­di­ate­ly reject the texts that are pop­u­lar rather than informed by aca­d­e­m­ic exper­tise. Text Mat­ters does not accept sub­mis­sions in poor Eng­lish or sub­mis­sions that do not con­form to Text Mat­ters style sheet. The man­ag­ing edi­tor screens all the sub­mis­sions in order to pre­vent pla­gia­rism, ghost writ­ing and oth­er kinds of mal­prac­tice. Only then are con­tri­bu­tions hand­ed over to par­tic­u­lar review­ers.

All sub­mis­sions should be sent to the offi­cial address of Text Mat­ters, text.matters@uni.lodz.pl
