Conflict of interest policy
Our editorial team is also committed to ensuring that the potential for advertising, reprint or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions.
An editor at TEXT is not to be involved in decisions about papers which s/he has written him/herself or that have been written by family members, colleagues or HDR candidates at one’s own institution, or which relate to projects, products or services in which the editor has an interest. Further, any such submission must be subject to all of the journal’s usual procedures, and peer review must be handled independently of the relevant author/editor and their research groups.
Publication ethics policy
Our editors are committed to evaluating manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.
Our editorial policies encourage transparency and complete, honest reporting. We ensure that peer reviewers and authors have a clear understanding of what is expected of them.
Our editors protect the confidentiality of all material submitted to the journal and all communications with reviewers, unless otherwise agreed with the relevant authors and reviewers.
While we consider carefully the advice provided by our peer reviewers, it is our editors who are ultimately responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published.
