The author has the following responsibilities:

  • The author should not submit concurrent manuscripts (or manuscripts essentially describing the same subject matter) to multiple journals. An author should also not submit any paper previously published anywhere to the journals for consideration.
  • The author should honestly gather and interpret his or her research data.
  • The author should guarantee that the works he or she has submitted are original. If the author has used work and/or words by others, appropriate citations are required. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.
  • The author should give due acknowledgement to all of those who have made contributions to the research. Those who have contributed significantly to the research should be listed as coauthors.
  • The author should promptly inform the journal editor of any obvious error(s) in his or her published paper and cooperate earnestly with the editor in retraction or correction of the paper. If the editor is notified by any party other than the author that the published paper contains an obvious error, the author should write a retraction or make the correction based on the medium of publication.
