Publication Ethics
We only accept original articles not published or submitted for publication elsewhere (not even in a modified version). In case that an article follows a previous publication, the older article must be properly cited and the author has to make clear what is new and how does it extend the previous one.

Publication Malpractice Statement
If an author breaks ethical principles for publication and does not respect the rule of prior publication, the article will be withdrawn with a comment on this matter.
