Research Integrity

Rigorous Peer Review

The journal ensures that all research output, in both journals and books, is thoroughly peer review by external reviewers, and offer the option of open peer review if required. Publications of a commentary or opinion nature may not be sent for external peer review but will include extensive editorial review and revisions.  The journal adheres to the COPE guidelines for best practice.

 

Indexing

Journal content is indexed with CrossRef and assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI). This means that all of our references are made available so that citations can be tracked by the publishing community, and the content is added to the Cross-Check anti-plagiarism database.

All of our article metadata is openly available for harvesting by indexing services via OAI-PMH and the journals are registered with Open Archives.
