Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- All authors declare that they made a substantial contribution to the work and that they are accountable for the work and its published form. The authors gave proper credit to the work of others, both in citations and in acknowledgment of contributions.
- The author(s) agree with the seven core doctrines of the Christian faith described on Klisia's website.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another press for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- The submission file is in the Microsoft Word, RTF, or OpenDocument file format.
- Where available, stable URLs for the references have been provided (i.e., they don't include the school's login to a database). DOIs are used when available.
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
- The Author affirms that all figures, pictures, or any other media used in this work are of their authorship, written permission was obtained for use in this project under a CC BY license, or they are already available in a proper CC license or equivalent.
- The author or all the authors in an edited work agree that the work, once accepted, will be published under CC BY 4.0 International license.
- The authors declared any and all conflicts of interest to the editors. By this, we mean any relation with for-profit or not-for-profit third parties whose interests may be affected by the content of the manuscript. Disclosure represents a commitment to transparency and does not necessarily indicate a bias. If you are in doubt about whether to list a relationship/activity/interest, it is preferable that you do so.
The author(s) or editor(s) retains copyright on work published by Klisia unless specified otherwise.
Licensing and publication rights
Klisia requires book authors and editors to publish their work in open access under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) license. This license allows commercial usage of your work, which is necessary to cover the costs of making hard copies in places with poor internet access, for libraries, and to be offered to retailers. This is the most flexible license used by Rice University's OpenStax and other initiatives to make textbooks accessible. It allows you as the author to distribute your material under a different license elsewhere, publish it for profit, or transform it without concerns with the Klisia version.
Klisia is an open-access publisher, which means that all online content is freely available without charge to the reader. Printed books are paid for, but their usage is the same. Klisia exists to serve the Church: readers are encouraged to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the books or use them for any other lawful purpose without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author, provided that the work is appropriately cited.
Authors never pay to submit or to publish with Klisia. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and donations allow the publication of our books. After your book is accepted for publication (Hurray!), we will set up a webpage with a donation form for your book, so you can help spread the word. The Holy Spirit will guide the church to be generous.
The names and email addresses entered in this press site will be used exclusively for the stated purposes of this press and will not be made available for any other purpose or to any other party.
