Editorial policy and ethics

Only paid-up members who first deliver papers to the society's annual meetings are eligible to submit their articles to the organizers of meetings who are appointed by the Executive to serve as editors of each volume.

The editorial committee first performs a routine check for plagiarism. If during the submission process or upon peer review, texts are judged to have been plagiarized, either from other works or from one’s own works, they will be rejected.  Afterwards, each article will be evaluated by at least two, and in general three readers, chosen for their particular qualifications, as attested by their publications.  The entire process is designed to be respectful of both authors and evaluators in order to ensure anonymity.  On the basis of recommendations submitted to them, guest editors will either accept or refuse submitted articles.   Authors whose articles are accepted must sign a release form giving Lumen, among others, the right to authorize reproduction of their text, either electronic or in print, in all languages, and in all countries  However, institutional archiving (auto-archiving) is permitted.

Lumen is permanently archived on Portico.
