The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal Documenta Praehistorica  is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. It is therefore necessary to agree upon standards of expected ethical behaviour for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the editor (and the editorial board), the peer reviewer and the publisher.
The Ljubljana University Press, Faculty of Arts (Znanstvena založba Filozofske fakultete Univerze v Ljubljani) as publisher of the journal Documenta Praehistorica takes its duties of guardianship over all stages of publishing extremely seriously and we recognize our ethical and other responsibilities. We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprint or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions. In addition, the Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana and the editorial board of Documenta Praehistorica will assist in communications with other journals and/or publishers where this is useful and necessary.
Our ethic statements are based on COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors and on existing Elsevier policies.
Documenta Praehistorica is published one issue per year.
This journal provides immediate open access to the full-text of articles at no cost on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
