Copyright transfer. CAD&A does not require authors to sign the copyright to the publisher. This is your work and you should be able to hold on to it. We only retain the right to publish the work and to disseminate it to the public.
Publish or perish. CAD&A does not participate in the publish or perish madness. We refuse to publish papers because of profit or personal ego. A paper is published if and only if it conveys important and reproducible information, and if it helps the public with technological advancements.
Review recommendations. The reviewer’s evaluation is an opinion only. It is not carved in stone and it is considered as a piece of advice only. It is also understood that, more often than not, review comments are contradictory, e.g. one recommends the paper for acceptance with minor revisions while the other wants it rejected outright.
Decisions. Decisions regarding acceptance, rejection or revision rest with the Editors. They may consider all, some or none of the reviews that are at their disposal. They are the only people who are responsible for making decisions, and they are the only ones to be held accountable for any decision.
