The editors will take reasonable steps to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred, including plagiarism, citation manipulation, and data falsification/fabrication, among others. In no case shall this journal or its editors encourage such misconduct, or knowingly allow such misconduct to take place.

The Editorial Board of Incontri undertakes to publish all corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies as soon as possible if and when they are required.

Peer review

Incontri guarantees a transparent editorial process, carried out using the double blind peer review system. The double blind peer review process is applied to articles and review-articles, but not to features, reviews or notes. These are directly evaluated by the editorial board without hiding the identity of the author.
