Publication ethics

EuJAP subscribes to the publication principles and ethical guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). For more detailed information see COPE's guidelines for journal editors.


Submitted manuscripts ought to:

  • be unpublished, either completely or in their essential content, in English or other languages, and not under consideration for publication elsewhere;

  • be approved by all co-Authors;

  • contain citations and references to avoid plagiarism, self-plagiarism, and illegitimate duplication of texts, figures, etc. Moreover, Authors should obtain permission to use any third party images, figures and the like from the respective copyright holders. The pre-reviewing process includes screening for plagiarism and self-plagiarism by means of internet browsing and software Turnitin;

  • be sent exclusively electronically to the Editors ( (or to the Guest editors in the case of a special issue) in a Word compatible format;

  • be prepared for blind refereeing: authors' names and their institutional affiliations should not appear on the manuscript. Moreover, "identifiers" in MS Word Properties should be removed;

  • be accompanied by a separate file containing the title of the manuscript, a short abstract (not exceeding 250 words), keywords, academic affiliation and full address for correspondence including e-mail address, and, if needed, a disclosure of the Authors' potential conflict of interest that might affect the conclusions, interpretation, and evaluation of the relevant work under consideration;

  • be in American or British English;

  • be no longer than 8000 words, including footnotes and references.

The Editors reserve the right to reject submissions that do not satisfy any of the previous conditions.

If, due to the authors' failure to inform the Editors, already published material will appear in EuJAP, the Editors will report the authors' unethical behaviour in the next issue and remove the publication from EuJAP web site and the repository HRCAK.

In any case, the Editors and the publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation following from copyright infringements by the authors.

If the manuscript does not match the scope and aims of EuJAP, the Editors reserve the right to reject the manuscript without sending it out to external reviewers.
