Publication Ethics and Standards for Authors
Open Access Pub is committed to maintaining the highest standards of publication ethics and integrity. We expect all authors, editors, and reviewers to adhere to the principles of ethical conduct outlined by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). As part of our commitment to ethical conduct, authors are expected to submit original work that has not been published elsewhere, and that is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. We also expect authors to disclose any potential conflicts of interest and to cooperate with the journal in case any inaccuracies or errors are identified in their work. We do not tolerate scientific misconduct, such as plagiarism, duplicate publication, or fabrication of data. Any instances of misconduct will be investigated and may result in the retraction of the article and disciplinary action against the authors. Additionally, we expect all authors to comply with applicable laws and regulations regarding animal and human experimentation and to obtain the necessary approvals and permissions. We also expect all authors to provide detailed information on any financial support they received for their research, including any funding sources and any potential conflicts of interest. We take all concerns and complaints about publication ethics seriously and will investigate any reported breaches of ethical conduct in a timely and impartial manner. By submitting an article to Open Access Pub, authors are confirming that they have read and agreed to our publication ethics and standards.
The editorial team at Open Access Pub is committed to maintaining the highest standards of integrity and ethical behavior in the publication of scholarly research. Our editors are responsible for making unbiased and fair decisions on the suitability of submitted manuscripts for publication, ensuring the confidentiality of submitted content, and addressing any ethical concerns that may arise. Additionally, we expect our editors to cooperate fully in investigations of any alleged misconduct or breaches of ethical guidelines.
Open Access Pub relies on the expertise and dedication of our reviewers to help ensure the quality and integrity of the research we publish. We expect our reviewers to be prompt and professional in their evaluations, to maintain confidentiality with respect to the manuscripts they review, and to provide unbiased and objective feedback. Our reviewers should inform the editor if they feel unqualified to review a manuscript or if they are unable to provide a timely review. Additionally, we expect our reviewers to uphold standards of academic integrity and not misuse any original content for their own research purposes.
