Code of Ethics

Our journal aims to collect academically valuable and original articles per each issue. Ethical principles and values are an integrated part of our journal. Five principles are the core of our Code of Ethics. They constitute a normative framework for all the scientific fields we care.

Principle A: Responsibility and Fairness

Researchers must be in the quest for the increase of knowledge and consciousness about an issue. They must not aim at harming any individual, society, institution or state. Their articles must be the outcome of a fair and balanced approach and aim at stimulating positive follow up.

Principle B: Competency

The submitted to the Editorial Board must look interesting, correctly written and valuable in terms of their direct contribution to specific literature. If they show these basic features they will be sent to the referees. We commit ourselves to analyse the manuscripts objectively, in terms of originality, accuracy, consistency, respect of the scientific methodology.

Principle C: Diversity and Non-discrimination

All the manuscripts are welcomed regardless of nationality, gender, ethnicity, religious views and political views, when notorious, of the author. Naturally the content of the submitted manuscripts must not be so biased by personal views as to compromise the scientific level of the texts.

Principle D: Confidentiality

Our journal aims at the preservation of any individual or institution against any possible annoyance or danger. The possible rejection of a submitted manuscript will be communicated privately to the author.

Principle E: Procedural Transparency

Researchers will be kept informed in each review procedure step. They must follow the requested timing for possible editing after the positive evaluation of the referees. Our journal will inform each contributor immediately after a decision has been made.
