Peer Review Process

Reviewer selection for each article submitted is up to the editors and takes into account reviewers' experience, competence, suggestions by authors or different editors, and a previous experience in reviewing papers for EJVCBP.

Every proposal submitted for publication is read at least by an editor, for an initial review. If the paper agrees with editorial policies and with a minimum quality level, is sent to two reviewers for evaluation. EJVCBP uses a double blind peer review.

The review process aims to provide authors with a competent opinion on their paper. A review should give authors suggestions, if needed, on how to improve their papers.

The peer-review process is managed with the OJS platform.

Publication Frequency

Starting from 2020, EJVCBP will be published quarterly. The publication frequency is quarterly.

Ethical code

The magazine aspires to select and publish, through peer review, the highest quality research in the various specialist disciplines related to the activities of the third sector. In order to achieve this, the entire peer review and publication process should be accurate, objective and fair. The newspaper's reputation depends heavily on the trust of all stakeholders in the fairness of the peer review and publication process. A formal code of ethics, outlining guidelines for good behavior and proposing solutions to ethical dilemmas faced by authors, editors and reviewers, can build stakeholder confidence and improve the reputation of magazines. With this goal in mind, the Code of Ethics is designed to be a comprehensive policy for peer review and publication ethics in specialist disciplines. The Code describes the policies to ensure the ethical treatment of all participants in the peer review and publication process. The authors, editors and online reviewers of the journal are encouraged to study these guidelines and to ask questions or concerns to the chief editor. These guidelines apply to manuscripts sent to the journal and can be reviewed at any time by the chief editor.

Code of ethics for authors

“European journal of volunteering and community-based projects” is committed to the highest publication standards. The prevention of publication malpractice is one of the important responsibilities of the editorial board. The Code describes “European journal of volunteering and community-based projects” policies for ensuring the ethical treatment of all participants in the peer review and publication process. “European journal of volunteering and community-based projects” Editors, Guest Editors, Reviewers and Authors are encouraged to study these guidelines and address any questions or concerns to the editorial team (valerio.brescia@unito.it).

These guidelines apply to all manuscripts submitted to “European journal of volunteering and community-based projects”, and may be revised at any time by the Editor-in-Chief and the Board. The following duties outlined for editors, authors, and reviewers are based on the Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors (latest version, 2011).

Duties of Editor in Chief (Editor) and Guest Editor(s)

Editor/Guest Editor(s) are responsible for the content of the journal and for ensuring the integrity of all work that is published in it.

    Publication Decisions: The Editor/Guest Editor(s) have the right to make the final decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript with reference to the significance, originality, and clarity of the manuscript and its relevance to the journal.

    Antiplagiarism: the Editor scans any submitted article with Turinitin software to detect similarities and potential plagiarism. The journal uses Turnitin software to indentify plagiarism

    Review of Manuscripts: “European journal of volunteering and community-based projects” follows a double-blind review process, whereby Authors do not know Reviewers and vice versa. The Editor/Guest Editor(s) are responsible for securing timely, independent and anonymous peer review from suitably qualified reviewers who have no disqualifying competing interests, of all manuscripts submitted to the journal. The Editor/Guest Editor(s) are responsible for ensuring that the journal has access to an adequate number of competent reviewers. Reviewers will be acknowledged by the journal at the end of each year. Reviewers’ list is public, on the journal website.

    Fair Review: The Editor/Guest Editor(s) and their editorial staff must ensure that each manuscript received by “European journal of volunteering and community-based projects” is reviewed for its intellectual content without regard to sex, gender, race, religion, citizenship, etc. of the authors.

    Confidentiality of submitted material: The Editor/Guest Editor(s) and the editorial staff will ensure that systems are in place to ensure the confidentiality and protection from misuse of material submitted to the journal while under review and the protection of authors’ and reviewers’ identities and will themselves take all reasonable steps to preserve the confidentiality of authors’ and reviewers’ identities.

    Disclosure: The Editor/Guest Editor(s) should ensure that submitted manuscripts are processed in a confidential manner, and that no content of the manuscripts will be disclosed to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, as appropriate.

    Conflicts of Interest: The Editor/Guest Editor(s) should excuse themselves from considering a manuscript in which they have a real or potential conflict of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, financial or other relationships or connections with any of the Authors, companies or institutions connected to the manuscript.

    Authority: The Editor in Chief must have ultimate authority and responsibility for the Journal. The Editor-in-Chief should respect the Journal’s constituents (Readers, Authors, Reviewers, Guest Editors, Editorial Staff), and work to ensure the honesty and integrity of the Journal’s contents and continuous improvement in journal quality.


When an author submits a manuscript to the magazine, the manuscript must be an original work.

Authors must not send the same work, in whole or in part, to two places of publication at the same time or at any time while the manuscript is being revised at the magazine. It is also inappropriate for an author to submit a manuscript that essentially describes the same research at more than one place of publication, unless it is a new presentation of a manuscript rejected or withdrawn from publication. Therefore, an Author cannot submit a work that is in whole or in part under revision elsewhere, nor submit to another point of publication a work that is in whole or in part in the revision phase of the magazine.

The manuscript must not have been previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere, either in full (including book chapters) or in part (including text paragraphs or artifacts), both in English and in another language.

The only exception to the "originality" rule is a document on the conference proceedings, in which the document is being processed towards the manuscript sent to the magazine. The author must inform the editorial office of the document on the conference proceedings , in advance or at the time of presentation to the Journal and, if requested by the editorial office, send the document of the conference proceedings to the online publisher and handle the manuscript.

If the manuscript contains materials that overlap with works that have previously been published, that are in print or that are under consideration for publication elsewhere, the author must cite this work in the manuscript. The author must also inform the online Business Administration Office of the related work and, if requested, send the manuscript to the publisher.

Authors must explicitly mention their work and previous ideas, even when the work or ideas are not cited literally or paraphrased in the manuscript. If exact sentences or paragraphs appearing in another work of the author are included in the manuscript, the material must be enclosed in quotation marks and appropriately quoted so as not to compromise the double-blind revision process.

The manuscript should identify the origin and originality of any proprietary and non-standard datasets used in the document, such as a master dataset created by the author through a survey. If the proprietary dataset has been used elsewhere by this or another author, the manuscript should cite these other works, whether published or not.

While self-citation is encouraged, the authors try to avoid over-quoting their previous works in order to increase the number of citations. Authors should also avoid self-citation that could violate the double-blind review process. If personally identifiable information is unavoidable, the author should include the information in the manuscript Acknowledgments and also inform the Management Editor.

Authors should not send a manuscript to the journal previously submitted for review and rejected after review by a publisher. If an earlier version had previously been rejected by the magazine and the author wished to review it for review, this fact and the justification for referral must be clearly communicated by the author to the online editor of Business Administration at the time of submission. Only in rare circumstances will a second presentation be allowed.

Plagiarism and self-plagiarism:

All work in the manuscript should be free of any plagiarism, falsification, fabrication or omission of significant material.

Plagiarism takes many forms, from "handing over" another document such as the author's document, to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another's document without attribution, to claiming the results of research conducted by others. Authors are expected to explicitly mention the work and ideas of others, even if the work or ideas are not cited literally or paraphrased. This standard is applied by the fact that the previous work is published, unpublished or available electronically. Plagiarism in all its causes is unethical editorial behavior and is unacceptable.

Redundancy (or "self-plagiarism") is unacceptable editorial behavior. Redundancy can use in at least two ways: (1) Authors recycle parts of their previous writings using identical or almost identical sentences or paragraphs from previous writings in subsequent research papers, without citation or recognition; or (2) The authors have published several articles that show slight variations on each other, which are sent for publication in different journals but without recognition of the other articles. Authors can and often develop different aspects of a discussion in more than one manuscript. However, manuscripts that differ mainly in appearance, but are presented as separate and distinct research without recognizing other related works, involving attempts (involuntary or intentional) to deceive reviewers and readers seeking the intellectual contribution of the manuscript. The publication decisions are influenced by the novelty and innovativeness of the manuscripts, the story is deception is inappropriate and unethical.

Associated authors minimize their recycling of previous writings. If recycling is unavoidable, the author should inform the publisher at the time of submission and refer to the previous writings in the manuscript. Such self-referencing should be carefully formulated to avoid compromising the double-blind review process.

If exact sentences or paragraphs appearing in another work of the author are included in the manuscript, the material must be enclosed in quotation marks and appropriately cited.

The cases of plagiarism and redundancy will be managed according to the practices of the ethics committee of the publication. In the event that the Publisher considers "major" redundancy (eg. Multiple overlapping paragraphs), the document will be rejected and authors may be prevented from submitting for a period of time. In the event of "minor" redundancy (eg. A single duplicate paragraph describing search methods), authors would be asked to rephrase duplicate sentences.

Preprint version of the paper and publishing policy/embargo policy:

The journal encourages the uploading of a preprint version on Sherpa / Romeo.

Once published, all articles are also deposited on OpenAIRE / Zenodo. The magazine does not apply any embargo on publications.

Conflict of interest:

Authors should avoid conflicts of interest or the appearance of conflicts of interest throughout the research process. A conflict of interest is a fact known to a participant in the publication process that, if revealed later, would make a reasonable reader deceived or deceived (or an Author, Reviewer or Editor feel defensive). Conflicts of interest can influence the judgment of authors, reviewers and editors. Possible conflicts are often not immediately apparent to others. They can be personal, commercial, political, academic or financial. Financial interests may include employment, research funding (received or pending), equity or equity ownership, patents, tuition or travel payments, consultancy, non-financial support or any fiduciary interest in society. The perception of a conflict of interest is almost as important as a real conflict, since both erode trust.

All these interests (or their absence) must be declared in writing by the authors when submitting the manuscript. If they are declared, they must be published with the article. If in doubt as to whether a circumstance represents a conflict, it should be disclosed, so that publishers can assess its significance. Any questions about possible conflicts of interest should be directed to the online office of the magazine or to the editor-in-chief.

Authors should disclose in the manuscript's Acknowledgments any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed. Authors may withhold the names of specific sponsors if they provide an adequate and full description of the sponsor's nature and interest.

When submitting a manuscript to Online Business Administration, the Corresponding Author has the opportunity to recommend one or more Area / Consulting Editors and up to four possible Reviewers for the manuscript. Authors should avoid any possible conflict of interest, or appearance of conflict of interest, in selecting Editors and Reviewers. Such conflicts of interest apply not only to the Corresponding Author but to any Co-Authors on the manuscript.

Examples of possible conflicts of interest include: (1) one of the Authors is at the same institution as the nominated Editor or Reviewer; (2) one of the Authors was a member of the Editor or Reviewer's dissertation committee, or vice versa; or (3) one of the Authors, and the Editor or Reviewer, are currently Co-Authors on another manuscript or have been Co-Authors on a manuscript within the past two years.

Authors should not nominate individuals whom they know have already read and provided comments on the manuscript or a previous version of the manuscript since such knowledge would automatically violate the double-blind review process.

Double-Blind Review:

The journal follows a double-blind review process, whereby Authors do not know Reviewers and vice versa. Authors should respect the confidentiality of the review process and should not reveal themselves to Reviewers, and vice versa. For example, the manuscript should not include any self-revealing information that would identify the Author to a Reviewer.

Authors should not post their submitted manuscript (including working papers and prior drafts) on websites where it could be easily discovered by potential Reviewers.

Authors should not nominate as Editor or Reviewer individuals whom they know have already read and provided comments on the manuscript or a previous version of the manuscript since such knowledge would automatically violate the double-blind review process.


Authors have the ultimate responsibility for all materials included in a manuscript submitted to the journal. Authors are obligated to present an accurate account of the research performed as well as an objective discussion of the significance of the research.

Authors should report their findings fully and should not omit data that are relevant within the context of the research question(s). Results should be reported whether they support or contradict expected outcomes. Authors should take particular care to present relevant qualifications to their research or to the findings and interpretations of them. Underlying assumptions, theories, methods, measures and research designs relevant to the findings and interpretations of their work should be disclosed.

The manuscript should contain sufficient detail and references to permit peers with access to the same dataset to repeat the work.

If an Author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own work, it is the Author's obligation to promptly notify the journal Editor and cooperate with the Editor to retract or correct the paper. If the Editor or the publisher learns from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, it is the obligation of the Author to promptly retract or correct the manuscript or provide evidence to the Editor of the correctness of the original paper.


All Co-Authors of papers should have made significant contributions to the work and share accountability for the results. Authorship and credit should be shared in proportion to the various parties' contributions. Authors should take responsibility and credit, including authorship credit, only for work they have actually performed or to which they have contributed. Other contributions should be cited in the manuscript's Acknowledgements or an endnote.

Authors should normally list a student as the principal Co-Author on multiple-authored publications that substantially derive from the student's dissertation or thesis.

Authors who analyze data from others should explicitly acknowledge the contribution of the initial researchers.

The Corresponding Author who submits a manuscript to the journal should have sent all living Co-Authors a draft and obtained their assent to submission and publication.

Human Subjects:

Authors have a responsibility to preserve and protect the privacy, dignity, well-being and freedom of human subjects and research participants. Informed consent should be sought from all human subjects, and if confidentiality or anonymity is requested it should be honored.

Manuscripts involving human subjects (surveys, simulations, interviews) should comply with the relevant Human Subject Protocol requirements at the Author's university.

Copyright Law:

Authors should check their manuscripts for possible breaches of copyright law (e.g., where permissions are needed for quotations, artwork or tables taken from other publications) and secure the necessary permissions before submission.

Authors should avoid anything in the text of the manuscript that might be actionable, such as defamation. Authors should avoid using sexist and biased language that could be interpreted as denigrating to ethnic or other groups; for example, plural rather than single pronouns ("they" rather than "he") are recommended.



Authors should be ready with their handwritten revisions. If an author fails to meet the deadline, they should contact the editor of the journal as soon as possible to determine whether a longer period of time or withdrawal from the review process should be chosen.

Post publication:

The authors of the journal must seek permission to publish their article (or a selection from the article) elsewhere, such as an article that subsequently appears as a chapter of the book or as a translation.
