Responsibilities of Editors

Editors evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their scientific merit (novelty, technical merits, quality of the data, conclusions based on data, importance for the scientific community, presentation) regardless of any form of discrimination (gender, religion, race,…..). Decisions publish are not determined by the policies of governments or any other agencies outside of the journal itself. The Editor-in-Chiefs have full authority over the entire editorial content of the journal and the timing of publication of that content.

Editors and editorial staff will not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the authors (all authors need to be informed), reviewers, potential reviewers, members of Editorial Board, as appropriate.

Editors will not use unpublished information for their own purposes. This information will be kept confidential. Editors will evaluate manuscripts in which they have NO substantial conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships/connections with any of the authors, companies or institutions connected to the papers.

The editors ensure that accepted manuscripts have undergone peer-review by at least two reviewers, who are expert in the field. The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for decisions based on the reviewers and Editors comments, and will not accept papers, which reveal defamation, copyright infringement, falsification, fabrication and plagiarism.

Every unethical publishing behavior will be investigated, even if it is discovered years after publication. If simple error or misconduct are confirmed, a correction, retraction, or other note will be published in the journal.
