REVIEWING PROCEDURES

All papers are subject to a double-blind peer review process. The papers are evaluated by two reviewers. In case their decisions are completely opposed, a third reviewer will evaluate the paper. Reviews must be signed and submitted to the editorial board. The name of reviewers is not disclosed to the authors.

Authors are solely responsible for the authenticity of the submitted articles. In case the reviewers consider the articles to be plagiarized,  the articles are rejected.

Reviewers are asked to download the review form, fill it in and send a signed copy to the editorial board.

 

POLICY OF SCREENING FOR PLAGIARISM

We discourage every form of plagiarism. The authors should ensure that their works are original and have not been published elsewhere. The legal responsibility for plagiarism rests exclusively with the authors. Papers submitted to Quaestus Journal will be screened for plagiarism and authors will be required to revise their article if the reviewers decide there is a suspicion of plagiarism. However, articles may be rejected if the reviewers consider that is the case.

The Quaestus Journal aims to protect the rights of authors and  investigates any claims of plagiarism or misuse of articles even after publication. In case plagiarism is detected after publication, an investigation may be conducted and the paper will be formally retracted from the electronic journal.
