Codice etico

The International Journal “Europa Orientalis” is an academic periodical. All participants in the editorial and publishing process (Authors, Reviewers, Editors, and Editorial Board Members) follow the ethical standards outlined below, which are based on the recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics.

When submitting a paper to “Europa Orientalis”, the Author thereby confirms his or her authorship. The Author must present in full all sources of information consulted in the work, including lists of sources (both published and unpublished), research literature (including the Authors’ own previously published works) and informants (when publishing the results of field studies). The Author ensures that if he/she has used the work and/or words of others, this has been appropriately cited or quoted. Any form of plagiarism is unacceptable; self-plagiarism, i.e., the attempt to republish one’s own previously published work without significant changes to it, is unacceptable as well. Concurrent submission of the same work to “Europa Orientalis” and to any other publication is prohibited.
In case of violation of any of the rules listed above, the Editorial Team is entitled to refuse the publication of the article at any time, including during preliminary consideration, without involving reviewers. Any changes added by the Author to a text that has been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication can be made only in coordination with the Editorial Team. An Author can withdraw an accepted work only before the materials have been sent out for editing.
It is unacceptable for an Author to place into the public domain materials that have been accepted for publication and sent for editing but which have not yet been published. If this rule is violated, the Editorial Team is entitled to withdraw these materials and to refuse to consider publication of any work by the Author at least for a period of three years.

The journal “Europa Orientalis” provides open access to its content on the web after a period of 18 months from the print edition. The Authors are not charged any fees for publication in the journal and the copyright remains in full with the Authors.

All submitted papers are evaluated on the principle of double-blind peer review, which means that all materials are sent to the Reviewers in anonymized form. None of the members of the Editorial Team or any other participants in the publication process is allowed to disclose the Authors’ name to Reviewers before the final decision regarding the publication of the submitted papers. If a Reviewer recognizes the Author of the article being reviewed and discovers a conflict of interest, he is to inform the Editor of this and recuse himself.
The Editor-in-Chief coordinates the whole process of the Editorial Team and makes decisions on key issues; he/she also releases issues for printing and gives permission for publication on the website. As a member of the Editorial Team and the Editorial Board, the Editor-in-Chief also guarantees strict compliance with all ethical standards set forth herein.
The international Editorial Board of “Europa Orientalis”, due to its academic authority and the principle of collegiality, guarantees that the published content meets international standards of scholarly and editorial ethics. All conflicts arising between the participants of the editorial and publishing process are to be resolved through the direct involvement of the Editorial Board.
