Editorial Code of Ethics


We not publish material or photographs that are false, deceptive, or distorted, including headlines that are not supported by the content. For us, accuracy is more than just getting the facts correctly. It is also critical to analyze all relevant facts and information in order to arrive at the truth. Our writings are well-sourced, evidence-based, fact-checked, and straightforward.


Fair reporting gives necessary background and context, does not omit key data, and seeks to be honest with readers, particularly about what we know and do not know. We strive to offer all important perspectives in our stories, ensuring that they are balanced and give context.


We are open about the origins of the stuff we post. We always connect to original sources; we endeavor to guarantee that information is given in a timely manner, that it is correct, and that it is intelligible in context. Unless there are security concerns, we always identify our writers.


All subject matter will be treated with impartiality. We seek to convey a range of viewpoints: being impartial does not imply being uncritical or refraining from editorial expression. We clearly distinguish between news and opinion. All information that is an opinion or analysis will be explicitly labeled as such.


The ability to hold ourselves accountable is the bedrock of good journalism. When we make mistakes, we will own them and remedy them. We will pay attention to our audience’s issues.

All articles that are submitted are subjected to a rigorous peer review procedure by at least two international reviewers who are specialists in the scientific field of the research in question. Relevance, soundness, importance, originality, readability, and language are all characteristics considered in the review. The journals allow for a maximum of two rounds of article evaluation. The Subject Editor and, in certain situations, the Editor-in-Chief are ultimately responsible for editorial choices. All appeals should be sent to the Editor-in-Chief, who may choose to consult with the Subject Editors and Reviewers. There are five possible outcomes: (1) Accept, (2) Minor modifications, (2) Major revisions, (3) Reject with encouragement to resubmit, and (5) Reject. There is no assurance that a revised contribution will be approved if Authors are urged to modify and re-submit.  The paper acceptance is limited by the legal criteria that will be in effect at the time addressing libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism.  No research may appear in more than one publication.
