SCP Code of Ethics
1. SCP is open to reviewing work exploring any content in any form.
The sole exception to this being that we will not consider any work deemed discriminatory or hateful beyond the realm reasonable for making an artistic statement.
This right of judgment lies with the editorial team.
2. SCP will not discriminate based upon an author’s race, gender, sexual preference, gender identity, religious beliefs or lack thereof.
In fact we are extremely open to writing exploring any such themes.
3. SCP will always offer its authors some form of compensation for the use of their work. Whether it be contributor copies, books, spotlights or monetary payment.
The exception to this is in regards to free online only publications in which no proceeds are amassed. The payment in these cases is exposure, unless otherwise noted.
4. SCP will always follow a clear and concise Copyright Policy that adheres to industry standards. Authors always retain full control of their work.
5. SCP is committed to creating quality publications and is constantly working to maintain and develop a high-level of design congruent with industry standards.
Any time SCP publishes a single-author publication (book, chapbook, pamphlet etc.) the author will be invited to openly engage in all aspects of the publishing process. SCP encourages collaborative design between the press and artist to ensure both parties are happy with the publication.
This does not extend to the publication of multi-author works such as our literary journal CircleShow or themed anthologies, the design of which will be solely facilitated by the press.
6. SCP maintains an open door policy and any author/reader/visitor is free to contact Editor-In-Chief Seth Jani at any time to discuss any and all things related to the press. He may be reached at [email protected]sevencirclepress.com.
