Publication Ethics


Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

For peer-reviewed manuscripts to be published in the journal, all parties involved—authors, reviewers, the chief editor, managing editors, associate editors, editors, and board members—must continuously work together. The chief editor and managing editors are in charge of maintaining the academic record and keeping an eye on publishing ethics. The editorial office takes on the duty of checking the articles for false information or plagiarism. The editorial team's objective is to keep the journal up to the highest publishing standards, which implies not only original, high-quality articles based on research but also any necessary retractions, explanations, and apologies. We value the input that each participant provides to the works that we publish.
