ORIGINAL SCIENTIFIC PAPERS:
Should report only original results. They are limited to 20 printed pages (80,000 characters). The publication of larger articles is subjected to the Editor’s agreement.
REVIEW ARTICLES:
They should be invited or agreed by the Editor. They should be concise (up to 25 printed pages, i.e., 100,000 characters), critical and creative. They should seek to stimulate topical debate and new research initiatives. Prospective authors are asked to send an extended abstract (two pages maximum) of their paper to the Editor by e-mail. The abstract should outline why the review is topical, its main points and objectives, and how it will stimulate debate and research. When the proposal has been accepted by the Reviews Editor, he will invite the author to submit a manuscript within an agreed time limit and following the general guidelines for submission of standard papers.
SHORT COMMUNICATIONS:
Short communications, which do not occupy more than four printed pages (16,000 characters). A Short Communication may be concerned with any subject within the scope of the Acta Adriatica but should be confined to a single point or issue of progress, such as an unusual occurrence, an interesting observation, or a topical and timely finding. The manuscript must, however, have some relevance beyond the species or locality under consideration.
CONFERENCE PAPERS:
Conference papers should report only original results which were presented on the conferences and symposiums. They should be submitted as like as original research papers.
Acceptance of papers. Papers will normally be critically reviewed by two or more outside experts in the relevant discipline and evaluated for publication by the Editor; however, the Editor may return to authors without review any manuscripts deemed to be of inadequate quality or inappropriate for the Acta Adriatica.
