The data collected through the journal website, both from registered and non-registered users, are necessary to guarantee the standards required for peer-reviewed journals. These data include contact information in order to carry the editing process forward; they are used to inform readers about the authorship and the editing process of documents’ content; they enable to collect aggregated data on readership behaviours, as well as to track geopolitical and social elements of scholarly communication.

This journal’s editorial team uses these data to guide publishing processes and to enhance journal improvements. Data that will assist in developing this publishing platform may be shared with its developer Public Knowledge Project in an anonymized and aggregated form, with appropriate exceptions such as article metrics. The data will not be sold by this journal or PKP nor it will be used for purposes other than those stated here.

The authors whose manuscript are published in TeMAs journal are responsible for the human subject data that figures in the research reported here.

Those involved in editing this journal seek to be compliant with industry standards for data privacy, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provision for “data subject rights” that include (a) breach notification; (b) right of access; (c) the right to be forgotten; (d) data portability; and (e) privacy by design.

The GDPR also allows for the recognition of “the public interest in the availability of the data,” which has a particular saliency for those involved in maintaining, with the greatest integrity possible, the public record of scholarly publishing.
