The editorial and organizing committees of the Strategica International Conference are strongly committed to ethical research and publishing, according to the guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.

The principles guiding conference’s associated editors, reviewers, as well as authors are:

– Fairness and objectivity in the analysis of data and evaluation of papers, with no regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, or other characteristics of the persons involved.

– Confidentiality in dealing with the manuscripts, reviewers and authors. Only appropriate information should be shared with appropriate individuals, under correct authorization.

– Originality is a guiding principle for evaluating a manuscript. The authors sign an originality statement, while the publisher scans the proposals for plagiarism.

– Acknowledgement should be considered to show the origin of sources, the authors of ideas and providers of data, the evolution of the studies and manuscripts. Proper acknowledgment for the work of others that have been influential in determining the results of the work must be always properly given.
