Code of ethics for Editors

Editors make final decisions regarding submissions to Social Psychological Bulletin (Psychologia Społeczna). As such, they are ultimately responsible for the quality of these decisions and how these decisions are communicated. Guidelines outlined for Reviewers (e.g., concerning timeliness, avoidance of conflict of interest) are also relevant to Editors. In addition, Editors must assess reviews for adherence to the aforementioned guidelines. Each decision should be communicated clearly and respectfully, integrating Reviewer comments and indicating a re-submission deadline (if applicable). Editors should take particular care to not disclose information about submitted manuscripts to third parties or to make use of information from unpublished manuscripts without the express written consent of the Authors.
