Editorial policy

The journal Italica Belgradensia is the official journal of the Department of Italian Studies of the Faculty of Philology of the University of Belgrade (Serbia). It is dedicated to topics in the field of Italian language, literature and philology. It was founded in 1975 by prof. Nikša Stipčević. A new series of the journal has been published continuously since 2013. Since 2017, the journal is indexed in Clarivate Analytics Emerging Sources Citation Index.

Italica Belgradensia publishes original scientific papers and reviews that have not been published previously.

Contributions to the journal shall be submitted in Italian (or English or French), with a summary and key words in English.

The journal is issued once a year.



The Editor is responsible for deciding which articles submitted to Italica Belgradensia will be published. The Editor and the Editorial Board are guided by the Editorial Policy and constrained by legal requirements in force regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism.

The Editor reserves the right to decide not to publish submitted manuscripts in case it is found that they do not meet relevant standards concerning the content and the formal aspects. The Editorial Staff will inform the authors whether the manuscript is accepted for publication no later than one month from the deadline for manuscript submission.

The Editor and the Editorial Board must hold no conflict of interest with regard to the articles they consider for publication. In case one or more members of the Editorial Staff hold a conflict of interest regarding a submitted manuscript, these members of the Editorial Staff shall withdraw from the selection of reviewers and all decisions related to the manuscript.

The Editor and the Editorial Board shall evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content free from any racial, gender, sexual, religious, ethnic, or political bias.

The Editor and the Editorial Staff must not use unpublished materials disclosed in submitted manuscripts without the express written consent of the authors. The information and ideas presented in submitted manuscripts shall be kept confidential and must not be used for personal gain.

The Editor and the Editorial Staff shall take all reasonable measures to ensure that the reviewers remain anonymous to the authors before, during and after the evaluation process, and the authors remain anonymous to the reviewers until the end of the reviewing procedure.



Authors warrant that their manuscript is their original work, that it has not been published before and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Parallel submission of the same paper to another journal constitutes a misconduct and disqualifies the manuscript from further consideration by Italica Belgradensia.

Authors also warrant that the manuscript is not and will not be published elsewhere (after the publication in Italica Belgradensia), in any language, without the consent of the Publisher.

In case a submitted manuscript is a result of a research project, or its previous version has been presented at a conference in the form of an oral presentation (under the same or similar title), detailed information about the project, the conference, etc. shall be provided in a footnote at the beginning of the text. A paper that has already been published in another journal cannot be reprinted in Italica Belgradensia.

It is the responsibility of each author to ensure that papers submitted to Italica Belgradensia are written with the highest ethical standards in mind. Authors affirm that the article contains no unfounded or unlawful statements and does not violate the rights of third parties. The Publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.

Reporting standards

A submitted manuscript should contain sufficient detail and references to permit reviewers and, subsequently, readers to verify the claims presented in it. Deliberate presentation of false claims constitutes a violation of ethical standards.

Book reviews should be accurate and they should present an objective perspective.

The content of the submissions is the exclusive responsibility of the authors and they must make sure that they have a permission from all the involved parties to make the data public.

Authors wishing to include figures, tables or other materials that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright holder(s). Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.


Authors must make sure that only contributors who have significantly contributed to the submission are listed as authors and, conversely, that all contributors who have significantly contributed to the submission are listed as authors. If persons other than authors were involved in important aspects of the research project and the preparation of the manuscript, their contribution should be acknowledged in a footnote or the Acknowledgments section.

Acknowledgment of sources

Authors are required to properly cite sources that have significantly influenced their research and their manuscript. Information received in a private conversation or correspondence with third parties, in reviewing project applications, manuscripts and similar materials, must not be used without the express written consent of the information source.


Plagiarism, where someone assumes another’s ideas, words, or other creative expression as one’s own, is a clear violation of scientific ethics. Plagiarism may also involve a violation of copyright law, punishable by legal action.

Plagiarism includes the following:

  • Word for word, or almost word for word copying, or purposely paraphrasing portions of another author’s work without clearly indicating the source or marking the copied fragment (for example, using quotation marks);
  • Copying equations, figures or tables from someone else’s work without properly citing the source and/or without permission from the original author or the copyright holder.

In case plagiarism is discovered in a paper that has already been published by the journal, it will be retracted in accordance with the procedure described below under Retraction policy, and authors will be permanently forbidden from publishing in Italica Belgradensia.

Conflict of interest

Authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might have influenced the presented results or their interpretation.

Fundamental errors in published works

When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal Editor or Publisher and cooperate with the Editor to retract or correct the paper.

By submitting a manuscript, the authors agree to abide by Italica Belgradensia’s Editorial Policies.


Reviewers are required to provide written, competent and unbiased feedback, in a timely manner, on the scholarly merits and the scientific value of the manuscript.

Reviewers assess manuscripts for compliance with the profile of the journal, relevance of the investigated topic and applied methods, originality and scientific relevance of information presented in the manuscript, presentation style and scholarly apparatus.

Reviewers should alert the Editor to any well-founded suspicions or the knowledge of possible violations of ethical standards by the authors. Reviewers should recognize relevant published works that have not been cited by the authors and alert the Editor to substantial similarities between a reviewed manuscript and any manuscript published or under consideration for publication elsewhere, in the event they are aware of such. Reviewers should also alert the Editor to a parallel submission of the same paper to another journal, in the event they are aware of such.

Reviewers must not have conflict of interest with respect to the research, the authors and/or the funding sources for the research. If such conflicts exist, the reviewers must report them to the Editor without delay.

Any selected reviewer who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that a prompt review will be impossible, should notify the Editor without delay.

Reviews must be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Reviewers should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Reviewers must not use unpublished materials disclosed in submitted manuscripts without the express written consent of the authors. The information and ideas presented in submitted manuscripts shall be kept confidential and must not be used for personal gain.



The submitted manuscripts are subject to a peer review process. The purpose of peer review is to assists the Editor in making editorial decisions, and through the editorial communications with the author it may also assist the author in improving the paper.

The choice of reviewers is at the Editor’s discretion. The reviewers must be knowledgeable about the subject area of the manuscript; they must not be from the authors’ own institution and they should not have recent joint publications with any of the authors.

As soon as received, papers are passed on to two anonymous reviewers, which are chosen on the basis of their specific competences and research fields. Reviews are to be returned to the Editor within thirty days. Reviewers evaluate the papers according to several criteria, as listed in the evaluation form.

Both reviewers of a paper act independently and they are not aware of each other’s identities. If the decisions of the two reviewers are not the same (accept/reject), the Editor may assign additional reviewers.

During the review process, the Editor may require authors to provide additional information (including raw data) if they are necessary for the evaluation of the scholarly merit of the manuscript. These materials shall be kept confidential and must not be used for personal gain.

The Editorial Staff shall ensure reasonable quality control for the reviews. With respect to reviewers whose reviews are convincingly questioned by authors, special attention will be paid to ensure that the reviews are objective and high in academic standard. When there is any doubt with regard to the objectivity or quality of a review, additional reviewers will be assigned.




Anyone may inform the Editor and/or the Editorial Staff at any time of suspected unethical behaviour or any type of misconduct by giving the necessary information or evidence to start an investigation.


  • The Editor will consult with the Editorial Board on decisions regarding the initiation of an investigation.
  • During an investigation, any evidence should be treated as strictly confidential and will only be made available to those strictly involved in investigating.
  • The accused will always be given the chance to respond to any charges made against them.
  • If at the end of an investigation it is judged that misconduct has occurred, then it will be classified as either minor or serious.

Minor misconduct

Minor misconduct will be handled directly with those involved, without involving any additional parties, e.g. by:

  • Communicating to authors/reviewers whenever a minor issue involving misunderstanding or misapplication of academic standards has occurred.
  • Sending a warning letter to an author or reviewer regarding the fairly minor misconduct.

Major misconduct

The Editor in consultation with the Editorial Board, and, when appropriate, further consultation with a small group of experts, should make any decisions regarding the course of action to be taken using the evidence available. The possible outcomes are as follows (these can be used separately or jointly):

  • Publication of a formal announcement or editorial describing the misconduct.
  • Informing the author’s (or reviewer’s) head of department or employer of any misconduct by means of a formal letter.
  • The formal, announced retraction of publications from the journal in accordance with the Retraction Policy.
  • A ban on further submissions by the same individual(s) for a specific period of time.
  • Referring a case to a professional organization or legal authority for further investigation and action.

When dealing with unethical behaviour, the Editorial Staff will rely on the guidelines and recommendations provided by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE):
