Accordingly, the publishers, the editorial board and editors and their respective employers, officers and agents accept no responsibility or liability whatsoever for the consequences of any such inaccurate or misleading data, opinion or statement.

Additionally, any working paper must be fully referenced on the submitted manuscript, e.g. ‘This article is based upon a conference paper X, presented at X.’
