Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

Pólemos (ISSN: 2281-9517) follows Donzelli‘s Guidelines on publication ethics  (download Ethical Statement), which draw on the COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.

The contributions published in various Sections – re-shaped for the new course (2015 on) – undergo double-blind peer-review procedures, as worldwide adopted by academic communities. The manuscripts received for review are treated as confidential and anonymous. The review, also anonymous, is entrusted to scholars of competence external to Pólemos’ Scientific Editorial Board and performed according to scientific standards stated in Pólemos’ Review Form for Reviewers. The Reviewers express assessment with the help of clear and documented arguments, taking into account prerequisites set by Editors. The assessment obtained by reviewing is transmitted anonymously to Authors only, and is not used in any case for personal gain.

The Review Forms are stored in a private archive, which is only accessible to Pólemos’ Scientific Director and to the working teams authorized by the National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes (ANVUR). Pólemos publishes each year, in the second issue of the year, the list of Reviewers, and also publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies when needed.
