Publication Ethics

The UST Law Journal adheres to the highest research and publication ethics standards and is committed to upholding and maintaining the integrity of scientific academic research and scholarly works.

Articles and scholarly papers are accepted for review and publication under the assumption that these are original. These papers should not have been published elsewhere, nor should they have been submitted for review/publication simultaneous with the submission to The UST Law Journal. Proper acknowledgment and citation of other results or publications should be made by the author(s) throughout the articles and papers.

All manuscripts submitted for publication are considered without bias concerning the race, ethnic origin, citizenship, political views, religious belief, gender, sexual orientation, age, and reputation of the authors.

The articles and scholarly papers published in The UST Law Journal do not necessarily represent the views of the Board of Editors. The publications represent the views of the author/s alone, and the author/s are responsible for the views expressed therein. Authors should declare potential conflicts of interest and sources of funding.

The UST Law Journal has been created for educational and information purposes, and the publications are not intended to constitute legal advice and must not be relied upon as such. All information is believed to be correct at the date of publication but may become obsolete or inaccurate over time. Any legal opinions expressed in the peer-reviewed articles and research papers are those of the authors and do not purport to reflect the opinions and views of The UST Law  Journal, UST-Graduate School of Law, and the University of Santo Tomas (UST) as a whole.
