Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement


All books and journals published by River Publishers are committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics and as a publisher we take all possible measures against publication malpractice. Authors who submit articles to any of River Publishers journals, or proposals to one of our book series, attest that their work is original and unpublished, and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. In addition, authors confirm that their journal article and/or book proposal is their own; that it has not been copied or plagiarized, in whole or in part, from other works; and that they have disclosed actual or potential conflicts of interest with their work or partial benefits associated with it.



For our policy on Open Access book publications, please see the section "Open Access Book Statement"



DUTIES OF EDITORS

  • Decision on the Publication of Articles and/or Books

    The Editor in Chief of journals published by River Publisher, and the Series Editors of book series published by River Publishers, are responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published, or which book proposals get accepted for publication. In the case of journals, the Editor in Chief may be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and subjected to such legal requirements regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The Editor in Chief may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.


  • Review of Journal Articles and Book Proposals

    The Editors in Chief of a journal, or Book Series Editors, must ensure that each manuscript is initially evaluated by the editor/co-editor/reviewer, who may make use of appropriate software to examine the originality of the contents of the manuscript and after passing this test, manuscript is forwarded to referees for peer review, each of whom will make a recommendation to publish the manuscript in its present form or to modify or to reject the same.


  • Disclosure and conflicts of interest

    Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used by anyone who has a view of the manuscript in his or her own research without the express written consent of the author.


  • Fair play

    Manuscripts shall be evaluated solely on their intellectual merit without regard to authors’ race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy.


  • Confidentiality

    The Editor in Chief/editors and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher.

DUTIES OF REVIEWERS

  • Promptness

    In case, any reviewer feels that it is not possible for him/her to complete review of manuscript within stipulated time then the same must be communicated to the editor, so that the same could be sent to any other reviewer.


  • Confidentiality

    Information regarding manuscripts submitted by authors should be kept confidential and be treated as privileged information.


  • Standards of Objectivity

    Reviews should be conducted objectively. There shall be no personal criticism of the author. Reviewers should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.


  • Acknowledgement of Sources

    Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that had been previously reported elsewhere should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the Editors in Chief's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.


  • Conflict of Interest

    Reviewers should not review manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

DUTIES OF AUTHORS

  • Reporting standards

    Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.


  • Data Access and Retention

    Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such, if practicable, and should in any event be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.


  • Originality and Plagiarism

    Authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others this must be appropriately cited or quoted.


  • Multiple Publications, Redundant or Concurrent Publication

    An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.


  • Acknowledgement of Sources

    Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.


  • Authorship of the Paper

    Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors.


  • Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest

    All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.


  • Fundamental Errors in Published Works

    When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the article.
