HOW WE HANDLE COMPLAINTS
A complaint is investigated by the Journal, if the received complaint bears an issue of copyright or property rights, or contains material inaccuracies or otherwise unlawful materials.
The involved parties may be requested to substantiate their claims during the investigation.
A faithful decision will be made about the removal of the allegedly wrongful material.
In case of no removal of the material, the decision must represent the Journal’s belief that a complaint with no foundation may face a legal defense or exemption, like a fair use in copyright infringement or truthfulness of statement in the case of libel.
All the investigations and decisions are to be documented by the Journal.
We strive to make sure that the content of the Journal possesses exemplary quality and is entirely free from overlooked mistakes and errors.
However, we also recognize the fact that mistakes are bound to happen occasionally.
