Publication Ethicsis to maintain high ethical standards of publication of quality articles and development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. The publisher aims to work closely at all times with Journal editors, to maintain the journal quality.Submission of an article indicate the truth that:
- The work described has not been published previously in any journal (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis)
- The submitted manuscript shouldn't be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
- The submission and publication of manuscript in the journal is approved by all co-authors and responsible authorities in an organization/institute where the work has been carried out.
- The submitted manuscript should be the author's original work and there should be no falsification or fabrication of data, plagiarism including duplicate publication of the author's own work without proper citation and misappropriation.
The Uptodate Research Publication journals works following the guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Code of Conduct, which is available at www.publicationethics.org.Core practices are the policies and practices journals and publishers need, to reach the highest standards in publication ethics. We include cases with advice, guidance for day-to-day practice, education modules and events on topical issues, to support journals and publishers fulfil their policies.The guidelines in publishing a manuscript is as follows:
- The editor of a journal plays a vital role in taking important editorial decisions on all peer-reviewed submitted for publication.
- The editor should adopt editorial policies that encourage maximum transparency of the academic research and record, preclude professional needs from cooperating ethical standards, and always guard the integrity of published record by issuing retractions, and corrections when required.
- The editor should access manuscripts for their scientific quality and intellectual content, free from any sort of biased decisions based on discrimination of race, gender, geographical origin, or religion of the author(s). The editor should evaluate manuscripts objectively based on their academic merit free from any commercial or self-interests.
- The editor should not disclose any information on submitted manuscripts before publication of the manuscript.
- Promoting research rectitude must be preserved. If at any stage the publisher suspects any kind of misconduct in research, it should be investigated promptly in detail with suitable authority; and if any suspicious act of misconduct is observed in the peer review, it should be resolved with diligence.
