Submission declaration and verification

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis or as in the Proceedings of the Conferenza del Colore), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work/reserach was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language. In order to verify its originality, the editor may check the article through originality detection services. Download the paper format with instructions for author(s).
