Conflicts of Interest

Editors of RJHIS are obliged to declare any potential competing interest in undertaking their editorial duties. Our editors will have no power in influencing the peer-review process or the publication decision for an article they authored and submitted to the journal. If a submitted manuscript is authored by one of our editors, a co-editor or an external party will manage the entire review process. Furthermore, should such a situation appear and the manuscript will be published, it will be explicitly stated in the article/book review that the editor who submitted the work was not involved in any way in the review process of that specific paper.
