Instructions for Authors
Manuscripts should be unpublished and not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
Only electronic submission is allowed. Please send manuscripts (PDF files only) to email@example.com (use "SUBMISSION to TDP" in the e-mail subject). Received files are acknowledged (in about a week at the latest).
After acceptance, sources files will be required.
No publication fees are required for publication.
For submission and publication, latex files are strongly preferred.
Very important notice: This is an open access journal with no publishing costs. To make this possible the editorial office is minimal, and if the paper is accepted, we expect to apply only some minor changes (e.g. pagination) to the final file. So, please adhere completely to the style of the journal. Please, take special care on
avoiding any redefinition of the margins of the text,
using a single type of file for figures in latex (if possible, EPS),
using consistent capitalization in titles,
using uniform style in references.

Note that the copyright is kept by the authors.
We use a single-blind peer review process. That is, the identity of the reviewers is kept anonymous, but authors names are in the paper.
We try to answer the authors within three/four months after submission. Nevertheless, the review process can naturally take less or more time as it depends on reviewer's availability. It usually takes longer in the summer period (summer in Europe) . From 2016, papers are published with information on submission, reception of revised version, and acceptance dates.
For enquiries about your paper use: firstname.lastname@example.org (include SUBMISSION TDP and reference number in subject).
NOTE: We cannot answer all queries related to possible publication of a paper from an abstract due to many of such requests. In general, we only review full papers.
The review form to be used by the referees can be found here: TDP.review.form.txt (ascii text)
We are very grateful to all our reviewers without them the journal would not be possible. If you want to help us with reviews, please send us an email with e.g. a link to your DBLP page and a short list of interests. Please, use the word TDP in the heading of your message. Thank you!!
This is an open access journal with no publishing costs. All papers follow the same review procedure.
As the number of issues per year is small, and we prefere to publish regular papers, we do not accept them in a regular basis but only occasionally. We may accept to publish an extended version of a selected conference/workshop paper (selected by workshop organizers) in some circumstances. If you are interested in organizing a special issue or invite one of the papers in your workshop to TDP, contact email@example.com.
Information we collect about you. We keep email correspondence related to submissions and reviews.
Data sharing. Only information about published papers (at most the same information in our web) is shared to third-parties for indexing purposes (e.g., DBLP). Authors are required to give consent through the publication agreement for this distribution.
Third-party Links. TDP's web site include links to third-party web sites. We are not responsible for these web sites, and we are not responsible for their privacy statements.
