Call For Papers

Policy on Publication Ethics

The journal expects all authors to be compliant with best practices in publication ethics and research integrity, including avoiding any and all misrepresentations as to due authorship, data presented within text, figures, and tables, and avoiding plagiarism, falsification, fabrication, or manipulation of data in the entirety of the manuscript and all supplementary data files submitted for editorial and/or peer review.

All multi-authored papers submitted should provide a clear statement about role and contribution of all co-authors (who performed what tasks, contributed to what function, etc. to qualify for authorship). When papers are submitted by the corresponding author, the Editor assumes all authors have consented to submission and prospective publication of the submitted paper in the journal. Others who did not perform according to authorship functions but have made some minor contribution may be mentioned in an Acknowledgements section at the end of the paper after the Reference List. Any paper submitted must not have been previously published in any form in any journal, conference proceeding, book, or edited volume. Any paper reporting on research results involving human subjects/participants must include documentation of ethics clearance of the research protocol in use from an Institutional Review Board/Ethics Review Committee. Such documentation (letter or certificate of approval) must be submitted at the time the paper is submitted to the journal for editorial review.

The journal’s editorial staff takes seriously any allegation of research misconduct or violation of publication ethics related to the paper submitted and/or published in the journal. The Editor will undertake to investigate any and all allegations to assure the journal’s compliance with research and publication ethics. Depending on the type of allegation any investigation may entail involvement of the author’s institutional authorities.
