Publishing Ethics

As an international journal for societies and their memberships, we are committed to promoting and practicing the highest standards of ethical publishing. The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journal.

Manuscript submission and the first evaluation

Manuscripts must be submitted through the Online Manuscript Submission and Tracking System (OMSTS). The editorial office evaluates the manuscript against the aims and scope of the journal. It will then be forwarded to at least 2 peer reviewers.
