This is a gold open-access journal, as articles are published immediately online as Open Access. Publishing has an Article Processing Charge (APC), and articles can be downloaded free of charge. The Journal charges authors with article processing charges (APCs) of 300 EUR. Users have the right to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full text of the published articles.
Authors should declare that their submission has not been previously published, nor is it at another journal for consideration, the financial support and reference list are complete and precise, including the specification of URLs and DOIs where available. We require that all authors have significantly contributed to the research associated with the submission and approved the submitted version. Authors warrant that the article is their original work. Authors are obliged to participate in the peer review process, follow the reviewers' advice, meet the required deadlines, and provide corrections of mistakes if any occur.
All submissions are subjected to peer review. At least two blind and independent reviews from international experts in the field are required to ensure reviewers have no conflict of interest with the authors. The reviews are based on the objective evaluation of the scientific merits and the contribution to the state of the art. Editors and reviewers handle the submission confidentially.
Authors are able to enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the Journal’s published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository or publish it in a book), with an acknowledgement of its initial publication in this Journal.
Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) before and during the submission process, as it can lead to productive exchanges and earlier and greater citation of published work. As soon as the paper is accepted and the final version is submitted and edited, the article will appear on the “Online First” page. Thus from this point on, no other internet-based publication is necessary.
