Comment Guidelines and Ethics


Comments made by IJP Open registered readers will be signed (except in the case of IJP formal peer reviewer reports) and posted directly without moderation or censorship.

It is therefore enormously important that posted comments stay strictly within the ‘reviewing’ task of examining a paper with respect to the clarity, coherence and substantiation of the author’s argument, and that comments remain respectful at all times.

The Editorial board of IJP Open warns against posting ad hominem comments or sweeping statements without detailed substantiation. Such comments are clearly not acceptable for respectful intercollegiate dialogue and IJP Open reserves the right to delete unacceptable comments and exclude such commentators from the community of registered readers.

IJP Open is for the benefit of all, authors and readers, and is there to enhance critical thinking via a respectful and sensitive engagement.
