Publishing Practices

Fragmentary, unreliable, ambiguous or delayed reporting of research may result in poorly informed decision making and reduce the efficiency and quality of the article. So, we endorse COPE guidelines to maintain good publishing practices.

  • Good research must be properly designed, strongly underpinned, and ethically approved. Appropriate protocols must be made, Statistical issues should be addressed early in the study design, and well informed consent should always be sought.
  • Data embedded must be properly analyzed, only factual and experimental must be produced. Fabrication of data can be considered as misconduct. Selective publication must be minimized, by disclosing the limitations of the research in discussion section.
  • Regarding authorship, authors should take responsibility over attribution of academic credit.
  • Conflict of interests, where relevant, must be declared to editors by authors/researchers, reviewers. Editors must take the responsibility of disclosing relevant conflicts to readers.
  • Peer reviewers are external experts chosen by editors to scrutinize the manuscript, with the aim of improving the study, providing a comprehensive report of their opinion and suggestions.
  • Plagiarism includes usage of others published or unpublished concepts unreferenced, sometimes even submission of a complete paper in a different language under new authorship. If it is unavoidable to use large amounts of others written or illustrative material, permission must be sought from the editorial office.
  • Editors have various obligations, considering and balancing the interests of many constituents, including readers, authors, staff, editorial board members, and the media. Editor’s decision on acceptance of article should be based only on the article’s significance, originality, and clarity, and the study’s relevance to the remit of the journal.
  • Medical research findings are of increasing interest to the print and broadcast media. Editorial board members may attend scientific meetings at which preliminary research findings are presented, leading to their premature publication in the mass media.
  • Journals and meetings derive significant income from advertising. Reprints may also be lucrative.

Stechnolock regularly works on reducing the costs of publishing and try to compensate those minimal costs to the publisher with advertisements of scientific products.
