The journal editor is responsible for the final approval concerning the publication of the articles submitted to the journal. This decision may be based on the journal policies and guidelines, or justified by legal motives related to plagiarism, copyright, or ethics infringement. The editor may consult the editorial board, as well as other editors or reviewers to decide publication approval. Editors should act responsibly when submitted manuscripts or published papers present ethical complaints.
Review of Manuscripts
The editor must ensure that each manuscript is initially evaluated for originality, being subsequently forwarded to peer review by at least two reviewers, who will make a recommendation to accept, reject or modify the manuscript.
The editor must ensure that manuscripts are evaluated based on their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.
The editor and editorial team must ensure that all information presented in a submitted manuscript is kept confidential to anyone other than the corresponding reviewers and potential reviewers, and editorial board.
Disclosure and conflicts of interest
The editor is not allowed to use for his own research, unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript, unless express written consent is provided by the author.
The editor is not allowed to submit his own research to the journal that he is responsible for.
The editor is not allowed to manipulate the citations by pressuring authors to cite previous papers from the journal.
2. Authors and Authors responsibilities
Authors of original research reports should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable. Review articles should be accurate, objective and comprehensive.
Authorship, Originality, plagiarism and acknowledgment of sources
Authors will submit only entirely original works, and will appropriately cite or quote the work and/or words of others. Publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work should also be cited Plagiarism constitutes an unethical behavior in publication in all its forms, and it is unacceptable. Authors should be aware of self-plagiarism (http://publicationethics.org/case/self-plagiarism, http://publicationethics.org/text-recycling-guidelines). Self-plagiarism is a grey area, so authors should contact the editor when in doubt. Authors must guarantee that the submitted manuscript has never been previously published; Authors must not submit the same manuscript to more than one publication at the same time. This constitutes an unethical practice and will be considered unacceptable; Authorship of a submitted manuscript must be limited to those who contribute significantly in the conception, execution and/or interpretation of the written study. All significant contributors must be listed as co-authors. Any other participants in certain aspects of the research must be acknowledged as collaborators.
Disclosure and conflicts of interest
All authors should include a statement disclosing any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that may be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.
Fundamental Errors in Published Works
When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and to cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper in form of an erratum
3. Peer-review process
Contribution to Editorial Decisions
Reviewers should support the editor in making editorial decisions, as well as, assist the author in improving the manuscript, throughout the editorial process.
The reviewer must notify the editor whenever he feels unqualified to review properly the research reported in a manuscript or is not available to make the review within the stipulated time, so that the manuscript could be sent to another reviewer for evaluation.
Information contained in submitted manuscripts received for review must be kept confidential, and not shown or discussed with others, except if authorized or recommended by the editor.
Standards of Objectivity
Reviews of submitted manuscripts should be conducted objectively. Referees should express their opinions and address points of improvement with supporting arguments.
Acknowledgement of sources
Reviewers must ensure that authors have cited all relevant sources of data used in the research and identify statements that had been previously reported in other sources and are not accompanied by the respective citation. Any similarity or overlap between the manuscripts under consideration or with any other published paper of which reviewer has personal knowledge must be instantly communicated to the editor.
Disclosure and conflict of interest
Reviewers must not use for personal advantage any privileged information or ideas contained in the submitted manuscript sent for peer review. Reviewers should not accept to review manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the submitted work.

4. Publication ethics
Publishers and editors take all possible measures to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred.
- In no case the journal or its editors do not encourage any misconduct, nor knowingly allow such misconduct to take place.
- In the event that a journal’s publisher or editors are made aware of any allegation of research misconduct the publisher or editor deal with these allegations appropriately.
- The journal has clear guidelines for retracting or correcting articles when needed:
The journal takes its responsibility to maintain the integrity and completeness of the scholarly record of our content for all end users very seriously. Changes to articles after they have been published online may only be made under the circumstances outlined below. We place great importance on the authority of articles after they have been published and our policy is based on best practice in the academic publishing community.
An Erratum is a statement by the authors of the original paper that briefly describes any correction(s) resulting from errors or omissions. Any effects on the conclusions of the paper should be noted. The corrected article is not removed from the online journal, but notice of erratum is given. The Erratum is made freely available to all readers and is linked to the corrected article.
A Retraction is a notice that the paper should not be regarded as part of the scientific literature. Retractions are issued if there is clear evidence that the findings are unreliable, this can be as a result of misconduct or honest error; if the findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper referencing, permission or justification; if the work is plagiarized; or if the work reports unethical research.
To protect the integrity of the record, the retracted article is not removed from the online journal, but notice of retraction is given, is made freely available to all readers, and is linked to the retracted article. Retractions can be published by the authors when they have discovered substantial scientific errors; in other cases, the Editors or Publisher may conclude that retraction is appropriate. In all cases, the retraction indicates the reason for the action and who is responsible for the decision. If a retraction is made without the unanimous agreement of the authors, that is also noted.
In rare and extreme cases involving legal infringement, the Publisher may redact or remove an article. Bibliographic information about the article will be retained to ensure the integrity of the scientific record.
- Publishers and editors always do publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies when needed.
