Publication Ethics & Malpractice Statement
Revista Bíblica does not necessarily identify with the views expressed by the authors in their respective articles. However, in the process of acceptance of articles for publication, it seeks to ensure intellectual honesty and independence, academic and research ethical integrity, and respect for intellectual property.
Our Journal meets the Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines proposed by the Committee on Publication Ethics, COPE (COPE Code of Conduct).
In the event of suspected malpractice, the Editorial Board will first contact the author and, if it does not receive a satisfactory response, will communicate its doubts or comments to the authors’ institution so that they can investigate what has happened. In the case of proven fraud, it will publish the news item in the next issue.
To ensure the originality of the manuscripts, Revista Biblica uses various anti-plagiarism tools. The similarity assessment criteria will always be subject to the decision of the Editorial Team. The control of possible plagiarism will be carried out before the peer review begins.
For the detection of plagiarism and self-plagiarism, in addition to the evaluation of the referees, various software will be used, the final decision being left to the Editorial Board.
By submitting an article, the Author grants the Journal a licence for its use and transfers to the Journal the “first publication rights” (print and digital) and the various forms in which the Journal may disseminate it through other media. The Author retains the “copyright” of the articles published in this journal, but may only use the same results in other publications, clearly indicating that Revista Bíblica is the medium of original publication and stating the exact reference.
Revista Bíblica does not charge authors any fees for the submission of manuscripts, nor does it charge fees for the publication of articles.
