Information for Contributors

The editor must insist that every contributing work to this publication reveal all respective authors involved in the creation of the said work (including providing their specific affiliation and contribution, i.e., who is the author of the concept, background theories, method, protocol, etc., used in the publication), with the main responsibility falling to the author submitting the manuscript. These measures are put into place given that the so-called “ghostwriting” or “guest authorship” phenomena display the lack of academic integrity and all detected cases of such will be exposed, to the extent of informing the proper entities (institutions hiring the  authors, academic associations, associations of academic editors, and so forth). The  editor will document all displays of academic misconduct, especially these breaking and infringing the ethics of proper scholarly research.

The editor shall disclose information concerning the sources of funding for  the publication, the input of research institutions, associations , and other entities (“financial disclosure”).
