Manuscript submission instructions
The Journal and Publisher assume that all authors agreed to the material and granted explicit approval to submit, as well as that they acquired consent from the appropriate authorities at the institute/organization where the study was conducted, prior to submitting the work. The Publisher makes no distinction between the kind of contributions that merit authorship. It is advised that authors follow the authorship criteria that are pertinent to their particular field of research. In the lack of particular criteria, the following guidelines are recommended:
All authors listed on the submission
1) contributed significantly to the work's idea or design; or to the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data; or to the development of new software utilized in the work;
2) authored the work or significantly edited it for significant intellectual content;
3) authorized the final version for publication; and
4) agree to be accountable for all parts of the work, including the investigation and resolution of any concerns about the accuracy or integrity of any portion of the work.
Author's Ethical Responsibilities
This journal is committed to maintaining the scientific record's integrity. The journal will adhere to COPE policies on potential acts of misconduct. Authors should avoid misrepresenting study findings, as this could jeopardize the journal's credibility, the professionalism of scientific authorship, and eventually the entire scientific enterprise. Maintaining the integrity of the study and its presentation is facilitated by adhering to the following rules of good scientific practice*:
The manuscript should not be submitted concurrently to more than one journal.
The submitted work must be unique and should not have been previously published in any form or language (in whole or in part), unless the new work represents an expansion of previously published material. (Please be transparent about material reuse to allay worries about text recycling ('self-plagiarism').
A single study should not be divided into multiple sections and submitted to multiple journals or to the same journal over time (i.e.,'salami-slicing/publishing').
Concurrent or secondary publication is occasionally justified under specific circumstances. Translations or manuscripts aimed at a different audience are examples.
The findings should be presented plainly and honestly, without fabrication, falsification, or improper data modification (including image based manipulation).
Authors should follow discipline-specific data acquisition, selection, and processing guidelines. No data, text, or theory from another source is presented as the author's own ('plagiarism'). Appropriate acknowledgements to other works must be provided (this includes material that has been closely copied (near verbatim), summarized, and/or paraphrased), quotation marks (to indicate words taken from another source) must be used for verbatim copying of material, and permissions must be secured for copyrighted material.
Authors should ensure that their studies have clearance to use software, questionnaires/(web) surveys, and scales (if appropriate). Both research papers and non-research articles (e.g., Opinion, Review, and Commentary articles) must mention relevant and appropriate literature to substantiate their findings. Excessive and inappropriate self-citation, as well as collaborative efforts by numerous authors to self-cite collectively, are strongly discouraged.
Authors should avoid making false assertions about an entity (which could be a human or a business) or describing their behavior or acts in ways that could be construed as personal attacks or allegations against that person.
Research that could be misused to endanger public health or national security should be noted explicitly in the manuscript (e.g. dual use of research). Examples include the development of hazardous biological agents or toxins, the breakdown of vaccine-induced immunity, unexpected dangers associated with chemical use, and the weaponization of research/technology (amongst others).
Authors are highly encouraged to double-check the author group, the Corresponding Author, and the author order prior to submission. While adding and/or deleting authors during the revision process is normally not authorized, it may be justified in rare circumstances. The reasons for authorship changes should be described in full. Please keep in mind that changes to authorship cannot be changed after a submission has been accepted. All of the above are guidelines, and authors must ensure that third-party rights such as copyright and/or moral rights are respected.
Authors should be prepared to provide pertinent evidence or data upon request in order to substantiate the authenticity of the results given. This may take the form of raw data, samples, or recordings, among other things. Sensitive data, such as confidential or proprietary information, is excluded.
If there is reason to suspect wrongdoing or alleged fraud, the Journal and/or Publisher will conduct an investigation in accordance with COPE rules. If relevant complaints are discovered throughout the investigation, the author(s) concerned will be notified via their provided e-mail address and given the opportunity to remedy the issue. This may result in the Journal and/or Publisher implementing the following procedures, among others:
The manuscript may be rejected and returned to the author if it is still under examination.
If the article has already been published online, the following steps may be taken, depending on the nature and severity of the offense:
- an article may include an erratum/correction.
- a note of concern may accompany the article.
- or, in severe situations, the piece may be retracted.
The rationale for the erratum/correction, expression of worry, or retraction note shall be specified in the published erratum/correction, expression of concern, or retraction note. Please note that retracting an article means that it remains on the platform but is watermarked with the word "retracted," and an explanation for the retraction is supplied in a note linked to the watermarked item.
The institution of the author may be notified.
A notice of alleged ethical standards violations during the peer review process may be put in the author's and article's bibliographic record.
All pages should be 1,15 spaced, Cambria font size 10,5 (including references) with 2,75 cm margins on all sides and must be between 5000-7000 words in length, including references, tables, and appendices. Your manuscript should include in a single file.
