Policy


peer review

policy
Humana.Mente operates a peer review process in order to improve the quality of the published manuscripts. During the process the reviewer's name can be withheld from the author and the author's name can be withheld from the reviewer. The reviewer may, at his or her own discretion, opt to reveal his identity to the author, however Humana.Mente standard policy is for both identities to remain concealed.

review process
All manuscripts are reviewed by the editor(s) of the issue, and only those meeting the aims and topics of the issue can be sent for outside review. In this case the manuscript is reviewed by at least one referee identified by the editor(s) according to his/her competences. All manuscripts are reviewed as rapidly as possible according to the deadline published in the call for papers.

instructions for authors

manuscript submission
Humana.Mente accepts only submissions of manuscripts related to the calls for papers advertised on the website. Submitting a paper to Humana.Mente implies that the manuscript has not been published before; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, and that it is not under consideration for publication in other journals. The publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.

permissions
Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s), and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.
