Publication Policy CEDH2020

The Euro-American Conference on Human Rights’ Development: Agenda 2030 – A New Chapter for the Evolution of Human Rights (CEDH2020) has not only allowed an integrated reflection on Agenda 2030, facilitating the articulation of research and academic debate on the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs), but has also allowed networking among academics and experts in these areas, promoting the development and aggregation of international and multidisciplinary research networks.

In partnership with JUS.XXI, the event proposes to publish primarily in an online version, enabling all published works to be found quickly, thus increasing the dissemination of scientific knowledge, but also from a perspective of environmental sustainability.

All the publications of the event have the scientific validity conferred by the rigorous system of double-blind peer review, by the apposition of ISBN (International Standard Book Number) of the publication with official registration, and indexing of the publication in the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) system that registers any type of digital file, which, once catalogued, has a permanent link to the published digital file that is quickly and widely accessible and is also the indispensable element for the aggregation of scientific content (per e-book and per chapter) in repositories and main indexing systems such as SCOPUS, Web of Science, DOAJ, EBSCO, QUALIS, among others.

With the emergence of the digital environment plus the international movement for open access to scientific production, there is a strong and growing commitment to the universal implementation of new requirements for digital publishing and good practice in scientific publishing that has not gone beyond the CEDH2020.

Aggregation of publications in indexing systems is a priority of the CEDH2020 and every effort will be made to make it happen, despite the lengthy and even complex processes of aggregation of scientific content in some of these systems, so the organization will not be able to guarantee a certain timeframe for this to happen and this aggregation of scientific content may occur at any time.

The main mission of the event is to disseminate knowledge and encourage multilevel scientific production by facilitating the sharing of synergies between academia and civil society in shared dialogues in person and virtually.
The publication content facilitated under the CEDH2020 is based mainly on 3 models: (1) Proceedings, (2) thematic monographs and (3) fast-track in partnership with journals endorsed in the areas of the event in the form of organization of thematic issue, special issue or dossier or access to the continuous flow of the journal under more advantageous conditions. The decision on the option(s) of publication models under the CEDH2020 is the responsibility of the Participants.

All models of publication under the CEDH2020 require a rigorous blind peer review process. This evaluation may have an internal scope only between the Scientific Committee of the event and/or internal which is mainly the case of the fast-track model whose responsibility for the evaluation of contents is the journal and/or journal chosen by the Participant.

The fast-track model is in itself a dynamic and developing model, and the list of magazines and journals associated to the event is being generated and made available to the Participants as the partnerships are established. The CEDH2020 gathers journals and collections of national and international reference in specific areas of knowledge and privileging, in most cases, the Portuguese language.

The principle of the CEDH2020 is that there should be no fees associated with the publication phase or costs of publication processing (Article Processing Charges) or even subscription. It is intended that there will be only one registration fee to be paid by the Participants for their participation in the event which also includes the publication phase. However, where there are fees to be paid associated with the specific costs of the publication phase, this information will be unambiguously available. Otherwise, the lack of explicit information on the payment fee associated with the registration phase should be interpreted as free or included in the registration fee for the event.

In this sense, the CEDH2020 proposes to publish, in partnership with JUS.XXI, all the abstracts of the works approved in all the modalities of participation and effectively defended throughout the days of the event in a publication in e-book format, in the modality of scientific production of proceedings or annals with Portuguese and European ISBN and indexation in the DOI system.

This publication is open only to abstracts of papers approved and regularly registered in the CEDH2020, although the organization may invite personalities in the areas of the event to participate in the publication, thus contributing to the greater prestige and scientific quality of this output of the event.

This publication also compiles the names of all the people who contributed to the production at authorship level, speakers, scientific commission, among others. The affirmation of Portuguese as a language of publication assumes strategic importance to the CEDH2020, however, beyond the Portuguese language, other official languages of publication present are Castilian and English.

The publication of this e-book should occur soon after, in the following weeks, to the accomplishment of the event and will be of wide dissemination, free and in open access. The CEDH2020 understands that it is through this type of publication that the subjects discussed at the event can be shared quickly and widely within the scientific community, but also with society in general.

For the CEDH2020, the publication of the full papers is a priority, and in this sense the event will organize an individual thematic collection for each Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) with its own call for book chapters. All chapter submissions are evaluated in a rigorous double-blind peer review process of all papers. Each thematic monograph will have an individual ISBN (International Standard Book Number) and under each thematic e-book and under each chapter the individual indexer will be made available in the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) system.

The organizational structure of all publications facilitated under the CEDH2020 is composed of the Scientific Committee, Executive Coordination/Organization and the Editing. Any person composing the authorship of works published under the CEDH2020 is hereby authorized to deposit their articles, chapters or even the book of proceedings itself in institutional repositories.

The marketing of any scientific product is already limited to the authorization of the CEDH2020 Organization. In order to clarify and protect intellectual property rights, Creative Commons Licenses are granted to publications under the CEDH2020 and the use of material from third parties is only authorized with their legal consent, which must be obtained by the authors responsible for submitting the work.

For each publication facilitated is made available a separate notice with the rules and standards for submission and publication of scientific content, contact for information, possible limitations and deadlines. The practice of plagiarism is ethically reproved and controlled through a recognized system of verification of originality of texts. Submissions under the CEDH2020 are by definition open to the international scientific community.
