Peer Review Process

All submissions are initially assessed by the Editor-In-Chief, who decides whether or not the article fits the scope of the journal and is suitable for peer review. Submissions considered suitable are assigned to one Managing Editor. The Managing Editor is responsible for assigning two or more independent experts, who should assess the article for clarity, validity, and sound methodology, following the recommended guidelines from Committee of Publication Ethics (COPE).

The journal operates a double-blind peer review process, meaning that authors and reviewers remain anonymous for the review process. The review period is expected to take ca. 8-12 weeks. Reviewers are asked to provide formative feedback, even if an article is not deemed suitable for publication in the journal.

Based on the reviewer reports, the Managing Editor will make a recommendation for rejection, minor or major revisions, or acceptance of the manuscript. Overall editorial responsibility rests with the journal’s Editor-in-Chief, who is supported by two assistant editors and an expert international Editorial Board

Plagiarism

The use of other people's work without correct attribtion and permission is considered a very serious offence by the academic community. All submissions to the Journal will be uploaded to Similarity Check to assess if the content closely matches content available elsewhere. If a high similarity report is produced, or a case of allegation is made against a publication, the Editor in Chief will carry out an independent investigation, following COPE guidelines, and remedial actions will be taken.

Corrections and Retractions

Amendments, Publisher's Notes, Correction Articles, Retractions or Withdrawals will all be dealt with in accordance with Stockholm University Presses Corrections Policy.
