Information For Authors
Interested in submitting to this journal? We recommend that you review the About the Journal page for the journal's section policies, as well as the Author Guidelines. Authors need to register with the journal prior to submitting or, if already registered, can simply log in and begin the five-step process.
Authors warrant that their manuscript is their original work, that it has not been published before, and are not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Parallel submission of the same manuscript to another journal constitutes misconduct and eliminates the manuscript from consideration by the Politics and Religion Journal. In case a submitted manuscript is a result of a research project, or its previous version has been presented at a conference in the form of an oral presentation under the same, detailed information about the project, the conference, etc. shall be provided in the footnote. A paper that has already been published in another journal cannot be reprinted in Security Science Journal.
Politics and Religion Journal are written with ethical standards in mind. The authors affirm that the manuscript contains no unfounded or unlawful statements and does not violate the rights of third parties. The Publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.
A submitted manuscript should contain sufficient detail and references to permit reviewers and, subsequently, readers to verify the claims presented in it. The deliberate presentation of false claims is a violation of ethical standards.
Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or other materials that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright holder(s). Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.
Authors must make sure that all only contributors who have significantly contributed to the submission are listed as authors and, conversely, that all contributors who have significantly contributed to the submission are listed as authors. If persons other than authors were involved in important aspects of the research project and the preparation of the manuscript, their contribution should be acknowledged in a footnote or in the Acknowledgments section.
Acknowledgment of Sources
Authors are required to properly cite sources that have significantly influenced their research and their manuscript. Information received in a private conversation or correspondence with third parties, in reviewing project applications, manuscripts, and similar materials, must not be used without the written consent of the information source.
Plagiarism, where someone assumes another's ideas, words, or another creative expression as one's own, is a clear violation of scientific ethics. Plagiarism may also involve a violation of copyright law, punishable by legal action.
Plagiarism includes the following:
- The word for word, or almost word for word copying, or purposely paraphrasing portions of another author's work without clearly indicating the source or marking the copied fragment (for example, using quotation marks);
- Copying equations, figures, or tables from someone else's paper without properly citing the source and/or without permission from the original author or the copyright holder;
- Any manuscripts which show obvious signs of plagiarism will be automatically rejected and author’s submissions will no longer be accepted by Security Science Journal.
In case plagiarism is discovered in a paper that has already been published by the journal, it will be retracted in accordance with the procedure described below under Retraction policy, and the author’s submissions will no longer be accepted by Security Science Journal.
Conflict of interest
Authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or another substantive conflict of interest that might have influenced the presented results or their interpretation.
Fundamental errors in published works
When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the Editor to retract or correct the paper.
By submitting a manuscript the authors agree to abide by the Politics and Religion Journal’s Editorial Policies.
