The overall aim of the journal is to foster valuable conversations in the new transdisciplinary and emerging field of valuation studies. Valuation here denotes any social practice where the value or values of something is established, assessed, negotiated, provoked, maintained, constructed and/or contested. To this end the journal welcomes contributions of different kinds and origins. Apart from traditional journal articles, the journal welcomes short opinion pieces or research notes, interviews, staged debates, or indeed longer than normal journal articles.

The editors have the overall responsibility over what is published in the journal.
- It is the editors who decide what is to be published in the journal. Extensive editorial power can for special (regularly open) submissions be delegated to a guest editor (normally a member of the advisory board).
- The editors are responsible for assigning reviewers and to assess the contribution as well as the reviews when deciding upon further actions regarding a contribution.
- The editors take pride in displaying integrity and respect when taking and communicating editorial decisions.
The editorial office is based at Linköping University and is currently editor CF Helgesson, head of editorial office Lotta Björklund Larsen, production and layout editor Karin Thoresson, and editorial assistant Maria Eidenskog.
- The editorial office is responsible for the operations of the journal and that they are conducted in line with the editorial and governance principles of the journal.
- The editorial office will oversee all the routine communication between contributors, reviewers, and other parties involved in processing contributions into publishable texts.
- The editorial office is responsible for dealing with all communication with Linköping University Electronic Press who hosts the journal.
- The editorial office is responsible to seek funding for the operations of the journal.
The advisory board is the central governing body for the journal and consists of a select number of scholars committed to participate in shaping the journal.
- The advisory board is involved in establishing and adapting the governing and editorial principles of the journal.
- The advisory board is involved in making decisions on larger publication endeavours (such as a special issue).
- A member of the advisory board might be approached to give a second opinion whether a specific submission is suitable for the journal.
- A member of the advisory board might champion and edit specific contributions. This concerns especially contributions that do not warrant a blind review process (interviews, staged debates, etc).

The following guiding principles are set out to assist in achieving the journal's overall aim:
- The journal shall be governed in such a way that different parties can participate in shaping the endeavour while retaining a clear definition over who is responsible for what.
- The work with the journal has to be kept at a manageable size for all involved parties since almost all work is done as a free community service.
- There shall be clear expectations on what the different parties will contribute to the endeavour.
- The journal shall be operated in such a way that it is able to accommodate initiatives that might not fit other more traditional journal outlets.
Authors retain the copyright to their contributions.
The editorial office will together with LiU e-press disseminate information about the journal widely and strive to make the journal part of major indexing services like: Ebsco, Scopus, Jstor and ISI.
