  • The texts are reviewed confidentially and anonymously, using "double-blind peer review", i.e. the Authors and Reviewers do not know each other’s identities.
  • The Reviewers of the texts are specialists in the discipline of international relations who are not members of the Editorial Team.
  • The Editors take care to avoid conflicts of interests between authors of reviewed texts and reviewers.
  • In order to ensure the originality of scholarly publications, the Editorial Team follows procedures to prevent dishonest practices, i.e. plagiarism, ghostwriting; guest authorship, honorary authorship, described in the Ethics Policy of SM/IR.
