JHWE respects all publication ethics aspects of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). COPE is a forum for editors and publishers of peer reviewed journals to discuss all aspects of publication ethics. It provides advice to editors and publishers on how to handle cases of research and publication misconduct. COPE does not investigate individual cases but encourages editors to ensure that cases are investigated by the appropriate authorities (usually a research institution or employer).


All type papers published by JHWE are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication. JHWE is an "Open access" publishing allowing immediate, world-wide, barrier-free, open access to the full text of research papers, which is in the best interest of the scientific community.

High visibility, for maximum global exposure, with an open access publishing model with rigorous peer review (blind peer-review) of research papers and prompt publication.

JHWE has no publication charges and no submission fees.
