Conflicts of Interest
Conflict of interest policy in the journal "Studies in History and Philosophy of Science and Technology"
The journal "Studies in History and Philosophy of Science and Technology" aims to take into account the conflicts of interest of the authors.
Authors should notify the editors of the journal at the time of submission of the article of any conflicts of interest that may affect the conduct or submission of the study to the editors, including close relationships with those whom the article might help or harm, academic interests and rivalries.
Reviewers should notify the journal's editorial board of any conflicts of interest that may affect their opinion of the manuscript.
Reviewers should not participate in the review of manuscripts in the event of a conflict of interest due to competitive, joint and other interactions and relationships with any of the Authors or organizations associated with the submitted work. They should refrain from reviewing specific manuscripts if there is a possibility of bias.
Reviewers should also be asked to clearly indicate whether conflicts exist or not. Reviewers should not use the knowledge of the work before publishing it in their own interests.
The editorial Board of "Studies in History and Philosophy of Science and Technology" avoid the choice of external reviewers with obvious potential conflicts of interest, such as those who work in the same department or institution as any of the authors. Authors may provide editors with the names of people they believe should not be asked to review the manuscript due to potential, usually professional, conflicts of interest.
Authors should provide the editorial board with information on possible conflicts of interest, which may be affected by the publication of the materials presented in the article, in particular on intellectual property issues. The editorial board may reject an article if it infringes the intellectual property rights of third parties, norms of scientific ethics or contains information for limited access.
Authors should indicate the persons who provide written or other assistance and disclose the source of funding for this assistance.
