In order to maintain quality, we place emphasis on the Originality, Significance and Rigour of the submission. Originality is understood in terms of the innovative character of the study: whether it engages with new and/or complex problems; develops innovative research methods, methodologies and analytical techniques; provides new empirical material; and/or advance theory or the analysis of doctrine, policy or practice. Significance is assessed in terms of the submission’s contribution to adding new knowledge to the field in theory or practice and may be theoretical, methodological and/or applicable. Rigour refers to the methodological design, and robustness and appropriateness of the concepts, analyses, theories and methodologies deployed within the submission. Account should be taken of such qualities as the integrity, coherence and consistency of arguments and analysis, and the due consideration of ethical issues if any.
The articles to be accepted for publishing need to be those adding new knowledge or developing concepts, techniques or outcomes, demonstrating rigorous research design and techniques of investigation and analysis, and written with sound logic and clear presentation.
