Ethics and Malpractice Statement

We publish papers based only on their quality, importance, originality, and relevance to our remit. We are committed to ensuring ethics in publication and high quality of scholarship. Conformance to standards of ethical behavior is therefore expected of all parties involved: Authors, Editors, Reviewers, and the Publisher.


By submitting a manuscript, the author(s) warrant that the manuscript is their own, original work and that it has neither been published previously nor is currently being considered for publication elsewhere. Submitting the same manuscript concurrently to more than one journal is unacceptable. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical conduct and is unacceptable, including Self-Plagiarism (reproduce or duplicate papers). The corresponding author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication.

Submitting Manuscripts

Articles should be a minimum of 5000 words in length. An exact word length should be indicated at the beginning of the manuscript. The manuscript should also include an abstract of no more than 150 words, also include 3-6 keywords.

General referencing rules

If there are more than three authors, the first name followed by ‘et al.’ is permissible in the text but the authors’ names should be spelled out in full in the references.

All references in the text and notes must be specified by the authors’ last names and date of publication together with page numbers if direct quotations are used (e.g. Maxell 2017: 29-30).

Do not use ibid., op. cit., infra., supra. Instead, show the subsequent citation of the same source in the same way as the first.

Where et al. is used in textual citations, this should always be upright and not use italics.

Enclose within a single pair of parentheses a series of references, separated by semicolons (e.g. Winner 2010; Scott 2003).

Please order alphabetically by author surname.

Use endnotes, not footnotes.

The reference list should be included at the end of the manuscript. Please provide DOIs for all journal articles that have them. This is a requirement for all open access journals.
