1- Authors should not select anyone with conflict-of-interest as his/her Potential Reviewer, Editor, etc.
2- Editors and Reviewers should not accept editoring and reviewing of manuscripts that have any conflict-of-interest with one of the Authors or their Affiliations.
Independence and Fair-play
Editor-in-Chief, Editors, and Reviewers evaluate submitted manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit (importance, originality, study’s validity, clarity) and its relevance to the journal’s aimss and cope, without regard to the authors’ race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, citizenship, religious belief, political philosophy, institutional affiliation, policies of governments or any other agencies outside of the journal itself.
Confidentiality and Disclosure
Editors and editorial staff will not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
Handling Unethical Publishing Behaviour
In cases of alleged or proven scientific misconduct, fraudulent publication or plagiarism, the publisher, in close collaboration with the editors, will take all appropriate measures to clarify the situation and to amend the article in question. This includes the prompt publication of an erratum, clarification or, in the most severe case, the retraction of the affected work. The publisher, together with the editors, shall take reasonable steps to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred, and under no circumstances encourage such misconduct or knowingly allow such misconduct to take place.
