2. DUTIES OF REVIEWERS
a) Contribution to Editorial Decisions
Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author in improving the paper.
Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor of the review process.
Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor.
d) Standards of Objectivity
Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
e) Acknowledgement of Sources
Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. A reviewer should also call to the editor’s attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.
f) Disclosure and Conflict of Interest
Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
3. DUTIES OF AUTHORS
a) Reporting standards
Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable. b) Originality and Plagiarism
The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
c) Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication
An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour.
d) Acknowledgement of Sources
Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.
e) Authorship of the Paper
Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.
f) Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.
g) Fundamental errors in published works
When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
Founded in 1962, the Journal “Itinerari. Yearbook of Philosophical Research” has a long history of uninterrupted activity. The Journal has its vocation in history of philosophy and is open to interdisciplinary contributions in the field of humanities. “Itinerari” aims to create an interweaving of disciplinary interests on philosophical, in particular ethical and political, issues.
The Journal pays the utmost attention to the most topical issues of contemporary philosophical debate, and it favors historical and theoretical investigations on the fundamental questions of the ethical, anthropological and religious traditions, with a rigorous and scientific methodological approach.
The Journal has been identified as the place of publication of the Proceedings of the first National Conference of SIFM (Italian Society of Moral Philosophy), held in Rome on 25th and 26th November 2011, with the title “General and specific Ethics” (n. 1, 2012) hosting contributions by Giuseppe Cantillo, Adriano Fabris, Aldo Massullo, Virgilio Melchiorre, Carmelo Vigna.
Since 2015, the Journal has been renewed by adopting a monographic form, that is, by dedicating each issue to a specific theme, with insights of both historical-critical and theoretical order. the single monographic issues were dedicated to the following themes: “Philosophy and Sciences in the Renaissance” (2015); “Europe and the Idea of Justice. Crises and Challenges” (2016); “Evil and its forms. Modern and contemporary reconsiderations of an ancient question” (2017); “Differences” (2018).
In each issue, “Itinerari” invites prominent academics and scholars to discuss and then, through a call for papers, opens to the partecipation of young scholars who can offer an innovative and original look at the issue of the Journal.
Since 2014 “Itinerari” has been included in the number of the Italian scientific journals.
