The procedure for evaluation of your editorial proposal:

1) Recording the copyright of the manuscript

There are numerous competent organs in Europe that release certification for the use of works , this way guaranteeing all the author’s rights (click here for the list). All authors and editors have the right to protect, economically too, their creations. As a reference point they have to turn to one or more companies, state run or private.

The author of a literary work must enrol at one of these competent organs in order to proceed with the publication of their work, presenting  therefore  ©edirtual with the documents that prove the ownership of the work. In this way the work is protected from copying and unauthorized distribution by third parties.

For any information you can contact ©edirtual mail@edirtual.com.
 

2) Mailing and admission of manuscript

Authors can send their manuscript completely corrected (in word, openoffice format) addressed to mail@edirtual.com or subscribing and accessing the service http://www.edirtual.com/auth.  ©edirtual will reply communicating the correct reception of the work and will conserve it for a maximum period of 30 days during which the text will be evaluated based on three qualifying elements.

a) Content. Evaluation by two members of the editorial committee, anonymously and conforming to the standard procedure of selection for articles for magazines and publishing companies. This review is always anonymous and with due protection of data.
