All submissions for the 2021 edition are expected to reach the committee by email by 31 October 2020. In the case of co-authored papers, one author should be nominated to act as the corresponding author with the Scientific Committee.
Authors may suggest the names and email addresses of three referees, however the editor reserves the right to consult other reviewers.
It is assumed that authors have abided by the ethics regulations and procedures of their home institution and country and of the country in which the research was carried out, if this was different. Any submissions to Symposia Melitensia must carry a statement to this effect.
It is further assumed that all necessary ethics clearances required were obtained from the appropriate institutional/national bodies before the study was carried out. The Scientific Committee of Symposia Melitensia may require proof of this before accepting to publish a manuscript.
Papers submitted to the journal must clearly state that any opinions expressed by the author/s are their own and do not represent the point of view or opinion of the institutions to which the authors are affiliated.
The Scientific Committee reserves the right not to publish a paper on recommendation of the blind peer reviewers; also due to issues of plagiarism; and if the research has not been submitted through an established ethics committee.
Authors must only submit work that has not been published previously. Authors are responsible for ensuring that all manuscripts (original or revised) are accurately typed and revised for any grammatical and syntactical errors before final submission. If English is not your first language, kindly make sure that your submitted manuscript is checked by a qualified proof reader.
