Articles submitted to the journal undergo a double-blind reviewing process. The two anonymous referees are chosen for their specific expertise and research field. The papers are then evaluated according to several criteria, indicated in an “evaluation form”. When submitting a paper, the author implicitly accepts the double-blind peer review process. The editorial board agrees to assess either the acceptance or rejection of the article within a maximum period of four months from the date of receipt.

The authors, editors of the journal, reviewers and publisher must all agree to and share these ethical requirements.

Responsibility of the Journal

The Editorial Board has the obligation to act when it suspects misconduct or detects abuse by authors. This duty includes published and unpublished papers.

The Editorial Board determines whether to accept or reject a paper for publication on the basis of subject relevance and originality and in this process is advised by suitably qualified external reviewers (Peer Reviewers).

The Editorial Board guarantees the proper selection of Peer Reviewers. Furthermore, the Editorial Board is committed to ensure fair, impartial and prompt peer review. A description of the review process is published and the Editorial Board is ready to provide justifications for any major deviations from the described process.

The Editorial Board follows a strict protocol to ensure all materials submitted to the journal are kept confidential during the review process. The confidentiality of individual, research or professional information obtained is guaranteed throughout the review process.

Responsibility of Authors

All authors are responsible for their articles: they are expected to guarantee the originality of their work and to be aware of the consequences of misconduct. Authors should always acknowledge their sources and provide detailed citations for all publications that influenced their work.

Authors are encouraged to follow editorial norms, thereby ensuring the accuracy, integrity and clarity of articles, inclusive of technical and editorial standards.

Reviewers are required to inform of any potential conflicts of interest before accepting to review a proposal.

Reviewers are asked to comment on the originality of submissions and be alert for potential redundant publications and plagiarism.
