Information For Librarians

  1. Publication Decision: Based on a review report from the editorial board, the editor can accept, reject, or request modifications to the manuscript. The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers should always encourage such decisions. Editors may be guided by the discretion of the editorial board and limited by current legal requirements relating to defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. Editors may consult with editors or review partners in making this decision. Editors must be responsible for everything they publish and must have procedures and policies in place to ensure the quality of the material they publish and maintain the integrity of the records published.
  2. Manuscript Review: The editor ensures that each manuscript is initially evaluated by the editor for originality. Editors manage and use peer reviews fairly and wisely. Editors describe their peer review process in information to authors and also indicate which sections of the journal are peer reviewed. Editors use appropriate peer review for papers under consideration for publication by selecting people with sufficient expertise and avoiding those with conflicts of interest.
  3. Fair: The editor ensures that every accepted manuscript is reviewed for its intellectual content without regard to the gender, gender, race, religion, nationality, etc. of the author. An important part of the responsibility to make fair and unbiased decisions is the enforcement of the principles of editorial independence and integrity. Editors are in a strong position with making decisions about publication, which makes it extremely important that this process is as fair as possible.
  4. Confidentiality: The editor ensures that information about manuscripts submitted by authors is kept confidential. Editors critically assess any potential breaches of data protection and patient confidentiality.
  5. Disclosure of Conflicts of Interest: Editors do not use unpublished material for their own research without the written consent of the author. Editors should not be involved in manuscript decisions where they have a conflict of interest
