Etikk i praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics (EiP) is a scholarly journal of applied ethics and related political theory. EiP aims to create a broad-based and unique journal for Nordic research within ethics.

The journal provides a meeting place for applied ethics, be it within biotechnology, research, primary and secondary education, childhood, the Internet, culture, nature, business life, sports, the media, medicine, politics or elsewhere.

Peer Review Process

Articles that are found promising will be subjected to review by independent expert peers (double-blind refereeing). The reviewers use 5 general criteria for evaluation in addition to specific expected qualities appropriate to the field or area the authors write about. The general evaluation criteria include: originality, contribution to knowledge in the field, clarity, adequate references, and overall quality of the article. The reviewers also write specific recommendations to the author and make a recommendations whether to accept the article for publication, do minor revisions, do major revisions, or reject the article.

It normally takes 4 weeks for peer reviewers to return their evaluation and the author will normally receive response within two months of submission.

Publication Frequency

Issues per year: 2 (May and November)

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. No subscription fees are charged to readers.

Article Processing Charge (APC)

This policy applies only to authors whose papers have been already accepted for publication. To ensure the highest level of quality of its publications, the journal augments its very limited funding by charging authors of accepted papers (who have access to funding from their home institutions) an Article Processing Charge (APC) of NOK 6 500 to cover editorial costs. The APC may be waived (if limited funding permits) only if there is no possibility for the authors to receive funding from their home institution or university.
