Lockwood Press is a publisher specializing in books and journals in the humanities and social sciences. We recognize and believe in the integrity of good ethical practice in publishing in order to promote and maintain the quality our contributors produce. As a publisher, we uphold the standards set forth in the COPE code of practice (www.publicationethics.org), specifically for all contributing parties: author, editor, reviewer and as publisher. We have communicated these standards to our journal editors who share in our aims for ethical publishing practice and agree to work towards these standards throughout the editorial process. Together, we ensure the ongoing excellence and quality for which Lockwood is recognized.
