Who can submit?

Anyone may submit an original article to be considered for publication in communication +1 provided he or she owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article. Authors are the initial owners of the copyrights to their works (an exception in the non-academic world to this might exist if the authors have, as a condition of employment, agreed to transfer copyright to their employer). Currently, communication +1 only accepts submissions linked to our CFPs, located here

Submitting articles

Submitted articles cannot have been previously published, nor be forthcoming in an archival journal or book (print or electronic). Please note: "publication" in a working-paper series does not constitute prior publication. In addition, by submitting material to communication +1, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that he or she will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at communication +1. If you have concerns about the submission terms for communication +1, please contact the editors.

Peer Review

communication +1 uses a double-blind peer review process. The Editor(s) perform an initial review of all submitted manuscripts and may reject papers that are clearly outside the scope of the journal. Manuscripts within scope will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. On completion of this process, usually within 6-8 weeks, the Editor(s) will notify authors of the decision and provide review guidance or additional editing if deemed necessary. Authors are encouraged to write in a style that is clear and concise, and use visuals and references as necessary to document statements.

Publication Fees

communication +1 is a diamond Open Access journal. We do not charge APCs. However, it is the responsibility of the author to ensure proper copyediting and formatting.
