Publication and authorship


  • A statement should be included in the title page indicating any financial support the authors had received.
  • The authors are not allowed to utilize verbatim text of previously published papers or manuscripts submitted elsewhere.
  • Authors should sign a copyright form stating that the article is an original work, has not been published before and is not being considered for publication elsewhere in its final form either in printed or electronic form. The same research must not be published in more than one journal.
 

Author's responsibilities

  • Authors should actively participate in the peer review process and provide suitable responses to the comments raised by peer reviewers on time.
  • All authors must have significantly contributed to the research.
  • Authors must state that all data in the article are real and authentic.
  • All authors are obliged to provide retractions or corrections of mistakes.
  • Copyright: If a manuscript contains any previous published image or text, it is the responsibility of the author to obtain authorization from copyright holders. The author is required to obtain and submit the written original permission letters for all copyrighted material used in his/her manuscripts.
 

Peer review/responsibility for the reviewers

  • Judgments should be objective;
  • Reviewers should have no conflict of interest with respect to the research, the authors and/or the research funders;

  • Reviewed articles should be treated confidentially.
  • Reviewers should advise editors and the final decision on an article is made by the Editors-in-Chief.
  • Reviewers should provide constructive comments to improve the quality of the article.
 

Editorial responsibilities

  • Editors should have no conflict of interest with respect to articles they reject/accept.

Publishing ethics issues


  • JRSR  is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). We fully adhere to its Code of Conduct and to its Best Practice Guidelines.

  • The JRSR uses the COPE flowchart for retraction of a published article (http://publicationethics.org//resources/guidelines)
  • All patients and participants of the research should be thoroughly informed about the aims of the study and any possible side effects of the drugs and intervention. Written informed consent from the participants or their legal guardians is necessary for any such studies. The Journal reserves the right to request the related documents.
  • The JRSR precludes business needs from compromising intellectual and ethical standards.
  • The Editors-in-Chief are always willing to publish corrections, clarifications.
  • Plagiarism: Use of verbatim texts from other sources without acknowledgement is prohibited. The content of all articles must be the original work of authors and must not be plagiarized from other articles.
  • Data falsification/fabrication: Falsification is the practice of omitting or altering research materials, data, or processes so that the results of the research are no longer accurately reflected. Fabrication is the practice of inventing data or results and reporting them in the research. Both of these misconducts are fraudulent and seriously alter the integrity of research. Therefore, articles must be written based on original data and use of falsified or fabricated data is strongly prohibited.
  • Image manipulation: The JRSR encourages authors to send their original images. All digital images in manuscripts accepted for publication will be checked for inappropriate manipulation. No specific feature within an image may be enhanced, obscured, moved, removed, or introduced. Adjustments of brightness, contrast, or color balance are acceptable as long as they are applied to the entire image and do not misrepresent any information present in the original, including the background. The editors will request the original data from the authors to compare the manipulated figures in cases suspected of inappropriate manipulation.
Advertising policy All advertisements and commercially sponsored publications are independent from editorial decisions. JRSR does not endorse any product or service marked as an advertisement or promoted by a sponsor in JRSR publications. Editorial content is not compromised by commercial or financial interests, or by any specific arrangements with advertising clients or sponsors.
  • ADVERTISING POLICY
JRSR reserves the right to decline any type of advertising that is damaging to the brand of JRSR or is inappropriate to the content held on the JRSR network.
JRSR will not accept advertising for products or services known to be harmful to health (e.g. tobacco and alcohol products).
Advertisements may not be deceptive or misleading, and must be verifiable. Advertisements should clearly identify the advertiser and the product or service being offered. Exaggerated or extravagantly worded copy will not be allowed. Advertisements will not be accepted if they appear to be indecent or offensive in either text or artwork, or if they relate to content of a personal, racial, ethnic, sexual orientation, or religious nature.
Once an advertisement has been deployed online, it will be withdrawn from the journal site at any time if the Editor(s)-in-Chief or Publisher request its removal.
JRSR will not allow any treatment-specific or drug-specific campaign to be targeted to a specific article(s) or on any page where content relates to the product(s) being advertised. (Advertisers may not link to articles using keywords; they may not target advertising for a specific product on the condition that it appear in the same location and at the same time as a specific article mentioning that product and they may not refer to an article published at the same time as the advertisement appears).
Policy on Making Changes to Articles after Publication
  • To preserve the integrity of published articles, once an article is individually published on the JRSR website, changes cannot be made in the article. Author-related information and corrections of minor errors may be made to the paper by paying the layout fee.
