Articles submitted to the journal should not have been published before in their current or substantially similar form, or be under consideration for publication with another journal. Authors submitting articles for publication warrant that the work is not an infringement of any existing copyright and will indemnify the publisher against any breach of such warranty. For ease of dissemination and to ensure proper policing of use, manuscripts become the legal copyright of the publisher unless otherwise agreed.

The journal's policy is to own copyright in all contributions. Before publication authors assign copyright to the Publisher, but retain the rights to republish this material in other works written or edited by the authors subject to full acknowledgement of the original source of publication. The copyright agreement will be sent together with the acceptance letter. All authors should be aware of the importance of presenting content that is based on their own research and expressed in their own words. The editor may make use of software for checking the originality of submissions received.
