3. Guidelines for advertising
1. All advertisements are subject to the approval of the journal or editor. However, the journal or the editor shall not unreasonably withhold such approval.
2. Advertising is separate from content. Advertisers and sponsors should have no advanced knowledge of our editorial content, nor should the editors shape content to accommodate advertising. Advertisers do not influence any of the journals’ editorial decisions or advertising policies.
3. The appearance of an advertisement in the journal is neither a guarantee nor an endorsement of the given product, service, company, or of the claims made in such advertising by the journal, society, or editorial partner.
4. Advertising that appears in the journal will be clearly distinguishable from editorial content.
5. Journal advertising sales representatives have no control over, or prior knowledge of, specific editorial content before it is published.
6. Advertisers have no control or influence over the results of searches a user may conduct on the journal. Search results are based solely on the functionality available through our search software (e.g., keywords or natural language) and user-defined criteria (e.g., displaying the most recent or most relevant items first).
7. In consideration of the publication of an advertisement, the advertiser, and the agency, agree to indemnify and hold harmless the journal, its officers, agents, and employees against expenses (including legal fees) and losses resulting from the publication of the contents of the advertisement, including, without limitation, claims or suits for libel, violation of privacy, copyright infringement, or plagiarism.
8. All advertisements must clearly and prominently identify the advertiser by trademark or signature.
9. Any reference to the journal or its products or services in advertisements, promotional material, or merchandising by the advertiser or the agency is subject to the journal’s prior written approval for each such use.
10. The journal is not responsible for any damages, including but not limited to actual, direct, incidental, or consequential damages, for errors in displaying an advertisement.
11. The journal will not be bound by any condition, printed or otherwise, appearing on any insertion order or copy instructions when such conditions conflict with the conditions set forth in this policy statement.
12. In the event of non-payment, the journal reserves the right to hold the advertiser and/or its advertising agency liable for such monies as are due and payable to the journal.
13. Any use of publication trademarks or copyrighted material for links to and from the website must be approved, in advance, by the journal. Any such unauthorized linking is prohibited.

Non-U.S. recruitment advertisers are required to confirm in writing that they are equal opportunity employers.
15. Advertised products must be compliant with the regulations in the country where the advertisement will be seen.
