Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement
The prevention of publication malpractice belongs to the most important priorities and responsibilities of the Editorial Board of the Neural Network World journal. Any kind of unethical behaviour is not acceptable. Plagiarism in any form is not tolerated. Authors submitting papers affirm that their manuscript contents are original texts. The below mentioned principles are obligatory for all parties participating in the Neural Network World publication process.
Editors bear responsibility:
- for the contents and overall quality of the journal,
- for keeping all the information related to submitted manuscripts confidential,
- for preservation of the anonymity of reviewers and authors in the (double-blind) review process,
- for prevention of any conflicts of interest among the staff, the authors, reviewers, and members of the Board.
The editors are entitled to accept/reject a manuscript for the review process making competent decision on publication/non publication of the paper.
Authors bear responsibility:
- for following the submission guidelines of the journal (see the Guide for Authors and the Sample Paper),
- for not submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently,
- for ensuring that their work is an original (as stipulated in the "Agreement on Work and on Granting License to Its Use" which has to be signed by each author),
- for ensuring that the manuscript has not been issued elsewhere (otherwise acknowledgements about newly reworked, adapted, and/or completed paper should be added),
- for appropriate citing in case of using previously published materials (i.e. citing all relevant sources of data used in the research article and all publications that have been influential),
- for limiting authorship solely to those who have made a significant contribution to the paper; on the other hand, all contributing authors must agree to the submitted version of the manuscript and the inclusion of their names as co-authors,
- for reporting significant errors or inaccuracies in submitted manuscripts that authors discover at any point in time to the Managing Editor,
- for providing retractions or corrections of mistakes (final proof),
- for notifying the Managing Editor of any conflicts of interest.
Reviewers bear responsibilities:
- for keeping information regarding manuscripts confidential and treating them as privileged,
- for immediate notice to the Managing Editor of any kind of similarity or overlap between the manuscripts under consideration or with any other published paper of which reviewer has personal knowledge,
- for objective review of submitted manuscripts and clear expression of their views including supporting arguments; reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors (see the Review Form); only positive reviews can enable publication of the paper,
- for immediate communication to the Managing Editor in case that he/she feels it is not possible for him/her to complete review of manuscript within stipulated time, so that the manuscript could be sent to another reviewer,
- for notification the Managing Editor of any conflicts of interest.
