Publication Ethics & Malpractice Statement
EJES Editorial board, Editors, Reviewers and Publisher follow publication ethics during the whole lifecycle of an article. We ask our authors to follow them as well.
We are willing to publish corrections, clarifications, deal with retractions and apologies if necessary.
Our editors are committed to ensuring fair peer review process that evaluates the scientific quality of the submitted paper. They preserve anonymity of reviewers and guarantee that any unpublished information will remain confident and will not be used for other purposes. They are committed to improve the quality of the final papers and to keep a high standard of articles in the journal. They have complete responsibility and authority for the final decision to reject/accept an article. Should they feel a conflict of interest, they immediately ask for a change of editor.
Our reviewers should be objective and fair and evaluate the scientific quality of the submitted paper. By accepting the review, reviewers declare that there is no conflict of interest with respect to the research, the authors and/or the research funders. They should point out relevant paper not cited in the article. They should treat all content of the submission and the whole review process confidentially.
Authors guarantees that the paper is original, that it was not previously published or concurrently submitted to another journal and that the research is based on real data and objective methods. They are obliged to provide retractions or correction of mistakes, should it be relevant. They should acknowledge all sources and avoid any form of plagiarism. They should also disclose any potential conflict of interest.
The corresponding author is responsible for ensuring all authors are well informed about the submission and review process and that there is a full consensus of all authors in approving the final version of the article for publication. The corresponding author also ensures that the list of authors should only include authors with relevant contribution to the final article.
Every published article should be original, not previously published and should include complete list of references, no plagiarism, no fraudulent data and information about financial support where relevant.
