IDEALOGY is a combination of the words IDEA and LOGY whereby the word IDEA refers to any activity or action that can lead to change. On the other hand, the word LOGY refers to the understanding towards a certain group or thought, that is often related to the creation of the idea itself. So, IDEALOGY is a platform for those who have ideas to share in journal form.

Editorial policies

Peer review policy

The journal’s policy is to have manuscripts reviewed by two or more expert reviewers. Idealogy Journal utilizes a double-blind and editorial peer review process in which the reviewer and authors’ names and information are withheld from the other. In order to facilitate a blinded review process, we request that there not be any author identifying information within the main document of an "in progress" submission. Rather than removing citations, we recommend that authors change their names to "blinded" within the in-text citations and references section. Articles that are accepted for publication with blinded information will be corrected during the production stage of this process. The title page and author information also will be added before the article is published. All manuscripts are reviewed as rapidly as possible,while maintaining rigor. Reviewers make comments to the author and recommendations to the Article Editor who then make the final recommendation.

The approach of Idealogy Journal's peer review process differs from that of traditional journals. Rather than assessing the relative 'importance' of a given article to its respective field, peer review will instead focus solely on determining the quality of research methodology, that is, determining whether the research was conducted properly, the discussion accurately summarizes the research, and the conclusion follows logically from the research. Readers and the academic community at large will then have the power to continue the peer review process after online publication, helping to determine the significance of each article through the ability to share a discuss articles freely and through article-level usage metrics.

The Editor or members of the Editorial Board may occasionally submit their own manuscripts for possible publication in the journal. In these cases, the peer review process will be managed by alternative members of the Board and the submitting Editor / Board member will have no involvement in the decision-making process.


All parties who have made a substantive contribution to the article should be listed as authors. Principal authorship, authorship order, and other publication credits should be based on the relative scientific or professional contributions of the individuals involved, regardless of their status. A student is usually listed as principal author on any multiple-authored publication that substantially derives from the student’s dissertation or thesis.

Idealogy Journal will only consider up to five articles submitted by an author or author group at one time. Only manuscripts of sufficient quality that meet the aims, field and scope of Idealogy Journal will be reviewed.


All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an Acknowledgements section. Examples of those who might be acknowledged include a person who provided purely technical help, or a department chair who provided only general support.

Third party submissions

Idealogy Journal will reject any manuscripts submitted by a third party rather than by the authors themselves or where any systematic manipulation of the peer review or publication process has been suspected. The journal reserves the right to enforce this policy at any point of the peer review or publication process.


Idealogy Journal requires all authors to acknowledge their funding in a consistent fashion under a separate heading. The format of the acknowledgment text in the event of funding, or state that: This research received no specific grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors.

Declaration of conflicting interests

Idealogy Journal encourages authors to include a declaration of any conflicting interests.

Please include any declaration in file separate from the main text, after any acknowledgements, under the heading 'Conflicts of Interest.' If no declaration is made the following will be printed under this heading in your article: ‘None declared’. Alternatively, you may wish to state that ‘The Author(s) declare(s) that there is no conflict of interest’.

When making a declaration the disclosure information must be specific and include any financial relationship that all authors of the article has with any sponsoring organization and the for profit interests the organization represents, and with any for-profit product discussed or implied in the text of the article.

Any commercial or financial involvements that might represent an appearance of a conflict of interest need to be additionally disclosed in the covering letter accompanying your article to assist the Editor in evaluating whether sufficient disclosure has been made within the Declaration of Conflicting Interests provided in the article.

Research ethics

Please ensure that you have provided the full name and institution of the review committee, in addition to the approval number.

For research articles, authors are also required to state in the methods section whether participants provided informed consent and whether the consent was written or verbal.

Information on informed consent to report individual cases or case series should be included in the manuscript text. A statement is required regarding whether written informed consent for patient information and images to be published was provided by the patient(s) or a legally authorized representative. Please do not submit the patient’s actual written informed consent with your article, as this in itself breaches the patient’s confidentiality. The Journal requests that you confirm to us, in writing, that you have obtained written informed consent but the written consent itself should be held by the authors/investigators themselves, for example in a patient’s hospital record. The confirmatory letter may be uploaded with your submission as a separate file.
