Our publication ethics are based on COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.
The editor is responsible for the selection of those articles, reviews, and interviews that will be published in the journal; the decision is based on the result of a double-blind peer review process. The editor should ensure that the peer review process is fair, considerate, and that article selection and content are not influenced by bias or discrimination based on class, race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnicity, citizenship or political belief.
The editor should strive to keep confidential the identity of both the reviewer and the author, so that the double-blind peer review process can function properly.
Papers which have been previously submitted for seminars, workshops and lectures, as well as chapters of diploma papers/dissertations can be submitted for publication. However, papers which have already been published will not be accepted unless the author has secured permission from the initial publishers. Photographs and other images can be inserted in the article, but only if they are relevantly discussed within the body of a given paper. Should papers include images, it is the author’s responsibility to ensure that the reproduction of the image does not infringe upon current copyright norms and/or secure copyright from the copyright owner.
The editor will ensure an unbiased review process for submissions from themselves, other colleagues, and members of the editorial board.
