Advertising Policies

Liability: Clients and/or advertising agencies assume full responsibility for all advertising content (text, representation and illustration) and any claim made against the publisher due to content. The word “advertisement” may be placed above copy, which in the publishers opinion, resembles editorial material. Advertisers should take care to conform to the Human Rights code in their advertising material.

Right of Refusal: CV2 reserves the right to reject any advertising it considers to be in conflict with the editorial mandate of the journal.

Payment: Payment is due within 60 days of the invoice date. CV2 reserves the right to cancel advertising at any time due to nonpayment of bill.
