Code of Ethics

THESE GUIDELINES ARE FULLY CONSISTENT WITH THE COPE PRINCIPLES OF TRANSPARENCY AND BEST PRACTICE GUIDELINES AND THE COPE CODE OF CONDUCT.

Editor’s Duties

The Editorial Board ensures that ethical standards of scientific publications are maintained and take all reasonable steps to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred, including, among others, plagiarism, citation manipulation, data fabrication. Manuscripts submitted for publication are evaluated for accuracy, compliance with ethical standards and usefulness for science.

Publication Decisions

The Editorial Board will decide, based on the Abstracts submitted, which will be published in each issue. The Editorial Board may confer with the Scientific Board as part of the decision-making process. The Editorial Board is constrained by copyright infringement and plagiarism. After acceptance, the Editorial Board should not overturn its decision to publish unless serious problems are identified with the submission.

Fair play

The Editorial Board evaluates manuscripts for their intellectual content regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors. The Editorial Board’s decision to accept or reject a paper for publication should be based only on the paper’s importance, originality and clarity and the study’s relevance to the aim of the journal.

Confidentiality
The Editorial Board, the Scientific Board and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript. Editors will ensure that submitted material remains confidential while under review.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editor’s own research without the author’s consent. The Editorial Board and its decisions are completely independent from the Publisher.

Procedures for dealing with unethical behaviour

Unethical behaviour may be identified and brought to the attention of the Editorial Board and
publisher at any time, by anyone. Whoever informs the editorial board and publisher of such
conduct should provide sufficient information and evidence for an investigation to be
initiated. If plagiarism is found after publishing, the Editorial Board will contact the author for a response to the allegations. In cases of proven plagiarism or no-response/non-adequate response, the offending paper will be retracted and a statement from the publisher will be inserted in its place in the relevant journal issue.

Reviewer’s Duties

Contribution to editorial improvements

Recommendations by peer reviewers should be transmitted, by the editorial staff, to the authors aiming improvements of the manuscripts.

Promptness
If the reviewer feels unqualified to review the research in the manuscript or knows that a prompt review on his/her behalf will not be possible, he/she should notify the editorial staff and the Editorial Board and excuse himself/herself from the review process.

Confidentiality
Reviewers must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript. Editors and
reviewers should ensure that material submitted remains confidential while under review.

Standards of Objectivity

Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate.
Reviewers should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

Acknowledgment of Sources and Identification of Possible Plagiarism

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors.

Statements, observations or arguments previously reported should be accompanied by a relevant citation. A reviewer should also call the editor’s attention to any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in a reviewer’s own research without consent from the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through the peer-review process must be kept confidential and not be used for personal advantage.

Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors,

Ghostwriting/guest authorship are manifestations of scientific misconduct and any detected cases will be revealed, including notification of the entities concerned. Manifestations of scientific misconduct will be documented by the Editors.

The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted. Authors found to have plagiarized material will be withdrawn from publication consideration.
