Duties of the Editors
In addition to many general duties, such as constantly improving the quality and integrity of the journal, striving to needs of authors and readers, encouraging academic research, and others, the editors accept obligation to apply best will.
Duties Of theAuthors
The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted. An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. . Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data and should be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.
Duties of the Reviewers
Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments. Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation.
