Publication Ethics

Publishing Ethics

Authors have a responsibility to present their work with the intellectual integrity that the scientific community expects. Before submitting a paper for consideration authors should familiarize themselves with the Ethics Toolkit. Authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if they have used the work and/or words of others, these should be appropriately cited or quoted. Authors should not concurrently submit a paper to more than one journal or primary publication, and should not submit a previously published paper for consideration.
