Publication Ethics

CadernosAA is committed to upholding the integrity of the academic record. The journal has adopted the standards and core practices of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) for editors and authors. Readers and authors should refer to Kleinert S & Wager E (2011) Responsible research publication: international standards for editors/authors. A position statement developed at the 2nd World Conference on Research Integrity, Singapore, July 22-24, 2010. Chapter 51 in: Mayer T & Steneck N (eds) Promoting Research Integrity in a Global Environment. Imperial College Press / World Scientific Publishing, Singapore (pp 317-28). (ISBN 978-981-4340-97-7).

Standards for editors

CadernosAA’s editors fully adhere to the following standards of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE):

• Editors are accountable and should take responsibility for everything they publish

• Editors should make fair and unbiased decisions independent from commercial consideration and ensure a fair and appropriate peer review process

• Editors should adopt editorial policies that encourage maximum transparency and complete, honest reporting

• Editors should guard the integrity of the published record by issuing corrections and retractions when needed and pursuing suspected or alleged research and publication misconduct

• Editors should pursue reviewer and editorial misconduct

• Editors should critically assess the ethical conduct of studies in humans and animals

• Peer reviewers and authors should be told what is expected of them

• Editors should have appropriate policies in place for handling editorial conflicts of interest

Standards for authors and plagiarism

CadernosAA takes issues of copyright infringement, plagiarism or other breaches of best practice in publication very seriously. We seek to protect the rights of our authors and we always investigate claims of plagiarism or misuse of articles published in the journal. Equally, we seek to protect the reputation of the journal against malpractice. Submitted articles may be checked using duplication-checking software.

CadernosAA fully adheres to the following standards of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE):

• The research being reported should have been conducted in an ethical and responsible manner and should comply with all relevant legislation.

• Researchers should present their results clearly, honestly, and without fabrication, falsification or inappropriate data manipulation.

• Researchers should strive to describe their methods clearly and unambiguously so that their findings can be confirmed by others.

• Researchers should adhere to publication requirements that submitted work is original, is not plagiarised, and has not been published elsewhere.

• Authors should take collective responsibility for submitted and published work.

• The authorship of research publications should accurately reflect individuals’ contributions to the work and its reporting.

• Funding sources and relevant conflicts of interest should be disclosed.

Peer-review process

CadernosAA fully adheres to the “COPE Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers”. Please refer to to access the complete document.

Peer reviewers play a role in ensuring the integrity of the scholarly record. The peer review process depends to a large extent on the trust and willing participation of the scholarly community and requires that everyone involved behaves responsibly and ethically. Peer reviewers play a central and critical part in the peer review process, but may come to the role without any guidance and be unaware of their ethical obligations. Journals have an obligation to provide transparent policies for peer review, and reviewers have an obligation to conduct reviews in an ethical and accountable manner. Clear communication between the journal and the reviewers is essential to facilitate consistent, fair and timely review. COPE has heard cases from its members related to peer review issues and bases these guidelines, in part, on the collective experience and wisdom of the COPE Forum participants. It is hoped they will provide helpful guidance to researchers, be a reference for editors and publishers in guiding their reviewers, and act as an educational resource for institutions in training their students and researchers.
