Code of Ethics

The editorial and publishing process of Safety & Defense is based on universal ethical principles and follows the conduct of Publishing Ethics, as laid out by the Committee on Publication Ethics.
The peer-review process follows the double-blind rule and is carried out in a fair, unbiased, and timely manner. Once a year the Editorial Board publishes the list of reviewers on the journal's webpage.
In compliance with the policy of transparency and provision of information on agents who participate in research publication the Editorial Board works against any form of academic conduct, including ghostwriting (not revealing shared authorship) and guest authorship (designating as authors or co-authors people whose contribution in writing the manuscript was minimal or non-existent). All discovered cases of dishonesty will be disclosed.
