Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission´s compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it in consideration for publication in another journal. Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis or as an electronic preprint, see 'Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication' section of our ethics policy for more information), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, including electronically without the written consent of the copyright-holder. To verify originality, your article may be checked by the originality detection service Crossref Similarity Check. Authors should ensure that they have written and submit only entirely original works, and if they have used the work and/or words of others, that this has been appropriately cited. Publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the work reported in the manuscript should also be cited.
  2.  The submission file is in Microsoft Word or LaTeX document file format (not exceed 10 Mbytes).The manuscript has been formatted from the template available at:

Types of paper 
Original research papers, reviews, letters to the editor and commentaries are welcome. They should contain an abstract (of up to 200 words) and a Conclusions section which, particularly in the case of theoretical papers, translates the results into terms readily accessible to most readers.
Letters are short papers, not preliminary reports. They are scrutinized as thoroughly as papers. They should be no longer than six double-spaced typed pages and 4 figures.
Comprehensive Review articles are primarily solicited by the Editor. If you wish to prepare a Review article, please contact the Editor to discuss your proposal.

QUARKS invites peers to review its submissions, relying on their expertise, curricula and their will to review them as volunteers. By accepting to REVIEW a manuscript, the REVIEWER commits himself to do so in due time. Delays are extremely negative to the review process and make it last much more than it should. When a REVIEWER is requested, he is gently asked TO ANSWER THE INVITATION E-MAIL, informing if he is or not willing to review the manuscript. It is a gesture of politeness and it avoids delays too. By accepting to review a manuscript, the REVIEWER declares that no conflicts of interests exist, and he is doing his revision for the wealth and progress of Science. Those reviewers who answer our requests, agreeing or not, and those who respect the deadlines, are scored positively, and eventual submissions they could send to ORBITAL will be treated with priority.

QUARKS uses CrossCheck plagiarism screening service and http://www.ithenticate.com/ to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts.
