The editorial team of Chiasmi International is committed to ensuring the integrity of the publication process by upholding the Code of Conduct of the Committee of Publication Ethics (COPE). Conformance to standards of ethical behavior is therefore expected of all parties involved: Authors, Editors, Reviewers, and the Publisher.
Authors should present an objective discussion of the significance of research work as well as sufficient detail and references permit others to judge the academic and scientific merits of the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable. Review articles should also be objective, comprehensive, and accurate accounts of the state of the art. The authors should ensure that their work is entirely original works, and if the work and/or words of others have been used, this has been appropriately acknowledged. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Authors should not submit articles describing essentially the same research to more than one journal. The corresponding author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication.
Editors should evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit. An editor must not use unpublished information in the editor’s own research without the express written consent of the author. Editors should take reasonable responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper.
Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviews should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments, so that authors can use them for 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 and excuse himself from the review process. 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 paper.

Pubblicazione trilingue intorno al pensiero di Merleau-Ponty
“Chiasmi International” is a peer-reviewed annual trilingual journal that publishes essays on or inspired by the thought of the French philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and more in general on phenomenology and contemporary French philosophy. It has been published regularly since 1999, collecting articles in English, French, or Italian as well as book reviews, always featuring abstracts of the contributions in the three languages. Each issue focuses on particular themes or subjects, also including a section of “Varia”. So far, “Chiasmi International” has published an important collection of original work on Merleau-Ponty that is truly international in scope, also making available to the public rare or unpublished texts of the philosopher and its translations. It has significantly contributed to advance scholarship on Merleau-Ponty's thought and to explore its impact on different cultural fields. It also aims to foster the international debate in phenomenology, to promote philosophical and interdisciplinary research, and to strengthen the international network of scholars and researchers interested in Merleau-Ponty's philosophy. “Chiasmi International” is indexed by the following bibliographic systems and platforms: Agence d'Évaluation de la Recherche et de l'Enseignement Supérieur (AERES), EBSCO Discover, Google Scholar, The Philosopher's Index, Philosophy Research Index, PhilPapers, ProQuest Summon, WorldCat Local.
