EWA Publishing journals are committed to the standards of publishing integrity and academic honesty. Editors, reviewers and authors are encouraged to refer to The Committee on Publishing Ethics (COPE) and to follow its guidelines.
Serious misconduct (for example, data fabrication, falsification or plagiarism) is taken seriously into consideration and is further investigated. When a suspicion of misconduct turns out to be confirmed, the available sanction is applied.
Before publication, EWA Publishing will randomly review papers from each scientific conference using the powerful text comparison tool: iThenticate. This procedure aims to prevent scholarly and professional plagiarism.
The journals make clear their aims and scope, editorial policy and manuscript requirements in terms of presentation and submissions.
Editorial decisions and editorial processes are run by the editors of the journals who are members of the organising committee of the event. The detailed procedures may vary from event to event according to the custom and practice of each community.
The acceptance criteria for all papers are the quality and originality of the research and its significance to our readership. Except where otherwise stated, manuscripts are double-blind peer reviewed. Papers will only be sent to review if the Editor-in-Chief determines that the paper meets the appropriate quality and relevance requirements.

All parties who have made a substantive contribution to the article should be listed as authors. Principal authorship, authorship order, and other publication credits should be based on the relative scientific or professional contributions of the individuals involved, regardless of their status. A student is usually listed as principal author on any multiple-authored publication that substantially derives from the student's dissertation or thesis.
