Plagiarism Plagiarism is unethical. Authors are required to only submit their original manuscripts. In case material – in whatever form – of others is used, it must be appropriately cited or quoted.

Multiple manuscript submission Authors should not submit manuscripts with essentially the same content to more than one journal, except if expressly communicated and agreed. Otherwise submitting the same manuscript to more than one publication simultaneously is considered to be unethical, unacceptable, publishing behaviour.

Source acknowledgement Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have influenced the content of their work. Information obtained privately, as in conversation, correspondence, or discussion with third parties, must not be used or reported without explicit, written permission from the original source.

Authors listing Only those authors who have made a significant contribution to the manuscript should be listed as authors or co-authors. Others who have participated to a lesser extent should be acknowledged or listed as contributors.

Errors in published work Authors who discover a major error in their own published work, are required to notify the editor/s and assist with withdrawal or correction of the manuscript.
