We maintain the highest level of ethical standards when creating collections. It is imperative that everyone involved in the development of the journal - authors, reviewers, editors and publishers - adhere to these standards.
Editors, reviewers and authors are encouraged to contact the Committee on Publishing Ethics (COPE) and follow its Code of Conduct and guidelines. You can find our policy statements here.

Requirements for journals
Journals clearly define their purpose and scope, editorial policies, and manuscript requirements in terms of submission and presentation.
Journal guidelines are available to any author.
Authors are expected to strive for objectivity and rigor in all aspects of their work. Authors are required to provide rebuttals or corrections of errors.
The list of authors should accurately reflect who did the work.
Journals consider only papers that have not been published and are not considered for publication elsewhere.
Editors, authors, and reviewers should disclose interests that may affect their ability to present or review data objectively.
Journals recommend the use of certain copyrights and make it available in the pages of the journal.

Editorial Committee
Editorial decisions and editorial processes are conducted by the content editors, who are members of the event organizing committee. Detailed procedures may vary from event to event depending on the custom and practice of each community.
The materials editors are committed to ensuring the quality of the publication and that what is reported is ethical, accurate, and relevant to the journal.
They have complete independence and are not dictated or influenced by any factors (political, commercial, etc.). Their decision to accept or reject an article for publication was based only on the merits of the work and its relevance to the journal.
If errors are found, the editors should encourage publication of corrections or rebuttals.

Peer Review
All published articles are peer-reviewed.
Journal policies encourage the use of blind reviews and, when possible, multiple reviewers.
Reviews should be conducted by peer reviewers who have been asked to provide unbiased and constructive comments aimed, when possible, at improving the work.
Proceedings editors should take all reasonable steps to ensure the quality of the papers they publish.
