Publication Ethics

In order to maintain the credibility of our publications, the Editorial Board is committed to influencing factors such as ethical publishing procedures and informing individuals involved in the editorial process. Moreover, publishers and editors take reasonable measures to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred; in no case shall a journal or its editors encourage such misconduct, or knowingly allow such misconduct to take place; if a publisher or editor of a journal becomes aware of any allegation of research misconduct, they shall deal with the allegation appropriately.
