The writers must make sure that all of their writing is original and that any instances in which they have borrowed ideas or phrases from other people have been properly cited or quoted. Any sort of plagiarism is undesirable.

Several, redundant, or ongoing publications

An author shouldn't publish submissions that effectively describe the same research in multiple primary publications or journals. It is improper to submit the same paper simultaneously to many journals as this is considered unethical publishing practice.

Co-authors should include everyone who made a substantial contribution. Others who contributed to particular substantive areas of the study effort should be thanked or identified as contributors.

Fundamental errors in published writings

When an author discovers a serious error or inaccuracy in his or her own published work, it is the author's responsibility to contact the journal editor or publisher as soon as possible and to work with the editor to retract or fix the manuscript.

Editors' duties

Publication decisions

The editor of a peer-reviewed journal decides which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published, often in collaboration with the appropriate society. Such decisions must always be driven by the validation of the work in question and its value to academics and readers. The editor may be led by the editorial board's policies and bound by the legal requirements in effect at the time addressing libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism.

Fair play

An editor should examine articles based on their intellectual value, regardless of the writers' color, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic background, citizenship, or political philosophy.


The editor and any editorial staff must not reveal any information about a submitted article to anybody other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial consultants, and, if appropriate, the publisher.

Conflicts of interest and disclosure

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript may not be used in an editor's personal research without the author's express written permission. Confidential information or ideas received through peer review must be kept private and not exploited for personal gain. Editors should withdraw articles from which they have competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or affiliations with any of the authors, companies, or (potentially) institutions affiliated with the publications.
