Ideally, we prefer to maintain a direct interaction with the author(s) since we believe that this improves and speeds up the process.
We would generally write to you in English, but we will be happy to communicate in whichever of these other languages you are most comfortable with: Spanish, Catalan, or Italian.
We prefer to work with Microsoft Word, but if you would like to work with other software, please contact us to discuss.
It is possible that we will be unfamiliar with some specialist terms in your article, and we might misinterpret them. To avoid this, please consider sending us a list of terms you think we might be unfamiliar with.
Time-frames for the review process at TPM
We generally try to respond to requests for clarification of any additional points within 24 hours, but can usually do this within a few hours of receiving them.
If you have a specific deadline, we will do everything we can to help you achieve this (enter the due date – not the submission date! – in the relevant field of the manuscript submission form). In exceptional circumstances, we may accept articles with an urgent deadline within a few days, which may carry an additional fee. If you are planning to send us an article with a short deadline, please try to give advance notice, and/or consider sending us any parts of the manuscript that have been completed.
