*Editorial policy specifications:

  1. If an article has many authors, their order will be decided by the title of scientific and academic rank of authors, in descending order. In the case of a tie, the order will be alphabetical by author’s surname.
  2. If the institutional affiliation of authors at the Faculty of Social Sciences, International Relations, Political Science and Security Studies Department (as professors, associated professors, master, master graduates, students or graduates of undergraduate studies), this affiliation is mandatory for membership as identification dates. The author is able to claim another quality (and only one), which will be settled AFTER AFFILIATION for the Faculty of Social Sciences – Department of International Relations, Political Science and Security Studies. This will appear in printed form of the article only if relevant to the our research domain. Decision on the relevance belongs to the editorial board.
