We aim to publish scientific robust work, so methods should be carefully described and data properly cited. Literature reviews are accepted as long as they provide meaningful insights and a clear contribution to the literature. Case studies are also accepted as long as they contribute to the debate and comprehension of issues of broader significance. Discussion and debate-focused articles without a major research component are generally not accepted, but they could be considered upon discretion of the Editors.
