Instruction – How to respond to reviews

An obligatory reading for authors – >> instruction-how-to-response-to-reviews <<

You will learn from it details about our peer-reviewing process, how to correct and edit the paper according to reviewers’ remarks and other useful information about general rules of academic practice regarding reviewing.


Review forms

Dear Reviewers and Authors, we uploaded to public the Review form which can be found on the Peer-reviewing policy page.

>>Reviewer form and declaration doc<<

How long should my paper be?

Dear Authors, when you were reading our Editorial Guidelines you encountered a limit for characters count set to 30 000. Here are some remarks on this issue.
– Don’t confuse characters count with words count. 30 000 characters make roughly 5000-6000 words.
– A page of text with standard formatting counts 1800 characters. Consequently – 30 000 characters make 16 pages of text (not including illustrations).

Why we made the limit relatively high?
To enable you to benefit from publishing in ICAR no matter of specific local regulations of receiving points for publication in a journal.
We encourage you to make sure that your local body responsible for giving points for publications doesn’t set a minimal character/words count.
It’s not obligatory for every country/institution to have it, maybe your’s doesn’t. Yet it’s still a good idea to check when you still have some time to adjust the length of your article.

Example (Polish Authors, please note!) – to have a research paper counted as a “publication” and collect points for it, according to regulations from the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, it has to exceed 20 000 characters.
