All submissions undergo a double-blind peer-review process with no regard to author's race, nationality, gender or political views. Two peer-reviewers are chosen for each article from the experts in its subject area. The peer-reviewer cannot submit a paper to be considered for publication in the issue where they evaluate papers. The authors are not charged any publication fees. All submissions must be original work and cannot be previously published nor considered for publishing elsewhere during the peer-review process. Each author should submit a statement assuring the originality of his/her work. It is the duty of the author(s) to take responsibility for the scientific accuracy of their research. They are responsible for ensuring copyright clearance for any illustrations included. In the case of any form of research misconduct, such as plagiarism, citation manipulation, and data falsification/fabrication, among others, the editorial board will not publish the paper and will inform the author's institution of the issues arising from the submission.
The JHEC (Print ISSN: 1608-8751) is included in the the European Reference Index for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS) since 2015.
Since June 2017 the journal is also accepted for inclusion in SCOPUS. SCOPUS is one of the largest abstract and citation databases of peer-reviewed literature.
