- We believe strongly in ensuring that we keep the editorial decision making processes of our publication completely separate from our commercial interests.
- Safeguarding this editorial independence requires that all editorial decisions, or concerns or complaints about editorial decisions, are dealt with strictly within the editorial structures of a publication.
- These structures typically include editors, editor-in-chief, editorial board or review board.
- It further requires that no one on the commercial or executive side of the business can get involved in, interfere with, or even comment on editorial decisions under any circumstances.
- To deviate from the rigorous application of this principle in any individual situation would ultimately serve to undermine the integrity of the principle of editorial independence altogether.
