The editors-in-chief of Capacious decide which submissions should be published.

The author(s) should ensure that the work and words of others have been quoted and cited in accordance with the standards set out in Author Guidelines. Capacious does not accept submissions which are otherwise under consideration and an article under consideration or in review by Capacious should not be submitted to any other publication.


Editors reserve the right to amend the published article and include a dated erratum. If an error or inaccuracy is discovered in a published article, the editors will consult with the author(s) to correct or retract the article.
