Studium is committed to upholding the highest standards of quality and integrity in the publication of its articles.
The editors will take reasonable steps to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred, including plagiarism, citation manipulation, and data falsification/fabrication, among others. In no case shall this journal or its editors encourage such misconduct, or knowingly allow such misconduct to take place.
Studium adheres to the best practices in the ethics of scholarly publishing stated in the COPE’s (Committee on Publication Ethics) Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for all parties involved: Authors, Reviewers, and the Publisher.
The Editorial Board of Studium undertakes to publish all corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies as soon as possible if and when they are required.
Authors are required to ensure that the submission has not been previously published, that permission has been obtained for the use of copyrighted material and that they do not infringe on the rights of third parties.
To ensure a reliable and open publication process, all authors, reviewers and editors are required to declare any interests that could appear to compromise, conflict or influence the validity of the publication.
Studium follows a thorough, double-blind, peer review procedure, by external reviewers. The anonymity of authors and reviewers will be monitored with the utmost care. Publications of a commentary or opinion nature may not be sent for external peer review but will include extensive editorial review and revisions.
To ensure permanency of all publications, Studium utilises CLOCKSS archiving systems to create permanent archives for the purposes of preservation and restoration.
Studium fully supports and encourages author self-archiving of all published content. Studium is registered with SHERPA/RoMEO to ensure that the license terms and self-archiving policy of Studium are clear.
