Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

Ideas Forum International Academic and Scientific Association (IFIASA) provides a platform for the latest scientific, multidisciplinary research, encouraging the Dialogue between Sciences & Arts, Religion & Education.

Ideas Forum International Academic and Scientific Association is an independent academic publisher with an editorial team comprising many world's leading researchers. In the current international framework, IFIASA journals and Conferences bring together researchers and scientists from all over the world, facilitating the professional development and encouraging dialogue, creativity and exchange of ideas.


All IFIASA Journals & Proceedings are open access resources. The manuscripts submitted are evaluated for scientific content, on conditions of equality for all authors. All the papers received are analyzed and assessed by the Editorial Board and subsequently undergo a peer-review process. The editorial committee encourages the publication of scientific articles under the condition of respecting the ethical values regarding scientific research.

The editorial committee ensures all authors that the confidentiality and impartiality regarding the process of reviewing their works are respected. Criteria for accepting a paper are: relevance of the study for the field in which it fits; observance of the drafting criteria and scientific accuracy. The articles are published only after double-blind peer review evaluation and upon receiving the “ready for publication” notice. Papers which do not meet the publication criteria will be sent back with comments and suggestions for improvement.

Publishers will guarantee reviewers anonymity.

Publishers will provide guidance to reviewers regarding their expectations in the evaluation process.

Duties of peer reviewers Contribution to editorial decisions

Peer review assists the Editor-in-Chief in making editorial decisions and, through editorial communication with the author, may also assist the author in improving the manuscript.

The referees who decline their expertise in the field of research of the paper attributed to them for review or who know that they cannot provide feedback in a timely manner are kindly asked to notify the Editor-in-Chief so that alternative reviewers can be contacted.
