Statement of Publication Ethics

JoQiE is committed to ensuring the highest standards of publication ethics which authors, reviewers and the publisher have to agree with. The journal is adhering to the following principles based on the Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors of the Committee on Publication Ethics – COPE.

For Reviewers

  • Reviewers asked for quick opinions are expected to be objective and to provide them promptly. Should they have a conflict of interest, or should they lack the expertise to make a judgment with confidence, they should make this clear to us and should decline to review the paper.
  • Reviewers are expected to keep confidential the information that the paper has been submitted to the journal.
  • Reviews should be conducted objectively and observations formulated clearly with supporting arguments so that authors can use them for improving the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors is inappropriate.

For Authors

  • Authors should submit original work only. Any results that are not due to the authors should be clearly cited. Copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another paper without attribution is unacceptable, as is any other form of plagiarism.
  • No paper should be submitted to the journal that is already published elsewhere or is being considered for publication by another journal.
  • Authors who discover important errors in their articles, whether published or under consideration for publication, should notify the journal  promptly.

  • Author has the obligation to reveal any personal interest or relationship that has the potential to be affected by publication of the submitted manuscript. Sources of funding must be acknowledged in the manuscript. All authors must report any financial interest in corporate or commercial entities dealing with the subject matter of the manuscript. On behalf of all the authors, the corresponding author has the responsibility to advise the Editor of an actual or apparent conflict of interest at the time of submission of the manuscript. Such conflicts will be acknowledged in the published article.

For the Publisher

  • In cases of alleged or proven scientific misconduct, fraudulent publication or plagiarism, the publisher will take all appropriate measures to clarify the situation and to amend the article in question. This includes the prompt publication of an erratum, clarification or, in the most severe case, the retraction of the affected work.
  • The publisher shall take reasonable steps to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred, and under no circumstances encourage such misconduct or knowingly allow such misconduct to take place.
  • The publisher is committed to the permanent availability and preservation of scholarly research and ensures accessibility to our digital archive.
