Topics and Purpose

The Journal covers topics on organizational studies and universal excellence. Its purpose is to research and develop the fundamental principles of excellency, in other words, the fundamental concepts of the new organizational paradigm using the EFQM model of business excellency:

Because the journal has the ambition to encourage new ideas and thoughts, its purpose also is to research and develop the basic principles or concepts of universal excellence using the Otočec rising strategy of universal excellence and mastery:

Peer Review

Before publication, all articles estimated by editor are forwarded in anonymous review process to at least two reviewers (blind peer review). The editorial board reserves the right that in the event of major inconsistencies or. substantive deviations from the editorial policy, does not forward the article for review and rejects it. Based on the received reviews, editor or editorial board publishes the article, requires revision or rejects it. Author must provide proofreading for the article.

Authorship and AI tools

The statement asserts that AI tools cannot be listed as authors of a paper, as they cannot meet the requirements for authorship, take responsibility for the submitted work, assert conflicts of interest, or manage copyright and license agreements. Authors must be transparent in disclosing if and how AI tools were used in their paper, and they are fully responsible for the content of their manuscript, including parts produced by an AI tool, and are thus liable for any breach of publication ethics.

Izzivi prihodnosti, guided by the COPE recommendations, supports this position on authorship and AI tools, while also acknowledging that its stance may evolve as AI tools and practices continue to develop. As the use of AI in writing becomes more prevalent, discussions around ethical considerations will undoubtedly continue.

Ethical awareness

A reviewer should be alert to potential ethical issues in the paper and should bring these to the attention of the editor, including any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which the reviewer has personal knowledge.
