ETICA & POLITICA / ETHICS & POLITICS POSITION ON PUBLISHING ETHICS

The Editors of Etica & Politica / Ethics & Politics have taken every possible measure to ensure the quality of the material here published and, in particular, they guarantee that peer review at their journal is fair, unbiased and timely, and that all papers have been reviewed by unprejudiced and qualified reviewers. The publication of an article through a peer-review process is intended as an essential feature of any serious scientific community. The decision to accept or reject a paper for publication is based on the paper’s relevance, originality and clarity, the study’s validity and its relevance to the mission of the journal. In order to guarantee the quality of the published papers, the Editors encourage reviewers to provide detailed comments to motivate their decisions. The comments will help the Editorial Board to decide the outcome of the paper, and will help to justify this decision to the author. If the paper is accepted with the request of revision, the comments should guide the author in making the revisions for the final manuscript. All material submitted to the journal remains confidential while under review. Once the author receives a positive answer, he/she should send the final version of the article since proofs will not be sent to him/her. E&P will publish the paper within twelve months from the moment of the acceptance, and the author will be informed of the publication. The journal is committed to such standards as originality in research papers, precise references in discussing other scholars’ positions, avoiding plagiarism. E&P takes these standards extremely seriously, because we think that they embody scientific method and are the mark of real scholarly communication. Since Etica & Politica / Ethics & Politics is devoted solely to scientific and academic quality, the journal neither has any submission charges nor any article processing charges. The following guidelines are based on existing Elsevier policies and COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors


1. PUBLICATION AND AUTHORSHIP

EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, is the publisher of the peer reviewed international journal Etica & Politica / Ethics & Politics. The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential step of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behaviour for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher. Authors need to ensure that the submitted article is the work of the submitting author(s) and is not plagiarized, wholly or in part. They must also make sure that the submitted article is original, is not wholly or in part a re-publication of the author’s earlier work, and contains no fraudulent data. It is also their responsibility to check that all copyrighted material within the article has permission for publication and that material for which the author does not personally hold copyright is not reproduced without permission. Finally, authors should ensure that the manuscript submitted is not currently being considered for publication elsewhere.


2. AUTHOR’S RESPONSIBILITIES

Etica & Politica / Ethics & Politics is a peer-reviewed journal, and Authors are obliged to participate in our double blind peer review process. Authors must make sure that all and only the contributors to the article are listed as authors. Authors should also ensure that all authors provide retractions or corrections of mistakes.


3. PEER REVIEW AND REVIEWERS’ RESPONSIBILITIES

Both the Referee and the Author remain anonymous throughout the “double blind” review process. Referees are selected according to their expertise in their particular fields. Referees have a responsibility to be objective in their judgments; to have no conflict of interest with respect to the research, with respect to the authors and/or with respect to the research funders; to point out relevant published work which is not yet cited by the author(s); and to treat the reviewed articles confidentially.


4. EDITORIAL RESPONSIBILITIES
Editors hold full authority to reject/accept an article; to accept a paper only when reasonably certain; to promote publication of corrections or retractions when errors are found; to preserve anonymity of reviewers; and to have no conflict of interest with respect to articles they reject/accept. If an Editor feels that there is likely to be a perception of a conflict of interest in relation to their handling of a submission, they will declare it to the other Editors. The other Editors will select referees and make all decisions on the paper.


5. PUBLISHING ETHICS ISSUES

Members of the Editorial Board ensure the monitoring and safeguarding of the publishing ethics. This comprises the strict policy on plagiarism and fraudulent data, the strong commitment to publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies when needed, and the strict preclusion of business needs from compromising intellectual and ethical standards. Whenever it is recognized that a published paper contains a significant inaccuracy, misleading statement or distorted report, it will be corrected promptly. If, after an appropriate investigation, an item proves to be fraudulent, it will be retracted. The retraction will be clearly identifiable to readers and indexing systems.

    Gloria e vanagloria
    (EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, 2011)
    Vigna, Carmelo
    Glory (“clara notitia cum laude” according to Saint Ambrose) can never be a goal for us because it happens only as a complement of the achieved goal. And we achieve the goal, being for others. Glory therefore could be a means, if any, used to achieve the goal. To search for one’s own glory means, in itself, to be in vainglory.

    “Weltoffenheit”: zeitgenössische philosophische Anthropologie im Zwischenbereich von Geist und Natur
    (EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, 2011)
    Rasini, Vallori
    Philosophical Anthropology in 20th century has focused on the relation between natural and cultural dimension in human being. On this issue, of course, there have been many different conclusions. In this paper, I deal with Arnold Gehlen’s and Helmuth Plessner’s points of view. Gehlen considers the “biological deficiency” of man the condition of an unconditioned and full “opening to the world” and the transformation of man innto an “artificial being” (increasingly far from nature). Instead, Plessner thinks that man is always a “natural animal” and that he can be an “eccentric being” only by means offered by his own nature. For this reason his “opening to the world” is conditioned, since culture is always interweaved with nature.

    The Contradictions of Libertarianism
    (EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, 2011)
    Grcic, Joseph
    Libertarianism is an ideology which reveals its contradictions when it is implemented. The libertarian denial of the right to what Rawls calls fair quality of opportunity, especially to the right to education, would negatively impact any libertarian society in adapting to its environment. Further, a libertarian society would lead to a caste society and the domination of the political system by an elite primarily interested in protecting its own privileges, not the freedom of the masses.

    Libere di scegliere? Patriarcato, libertà e autonomia in una prospettiva di genere
    (EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, 2011)
    Casalini, Brunella
    Are we today in a post-patriarchal or in a neo-patriarchal society? To answer this question, the article explores – in a gender perspective – the contemporary redefinition of public and private sphere, as well as the main changes taking place in connection with reproductive and sexual freedom, and in family life.
