Conflict of Interest Policy

A conflict of interest happens when professional judgment concerning the validity of research may be influenced by externals factors like financial gain and personal interests. It may arise for the editor, reviewers or authors of a manuscript submitted for publication to Nova Explore Publications.

External factors may influence the conduct and interpretation of research.

It is important to know about the conflicts of interest the editors, reviewers, and authors in order to make the best decision for the handling of the article during editorial and peer review process. It is also important for the readers of the article to know about any conflict of interest.

Nova Explore Publications recognizes the multiplicity of financial and other conflicts confronting authors, referees, and editors. Nova adopted a policy that does not aim to eliminate conflict but to manage it. The most important element of our policy is that all authors, members, referees, and editors must disclose any association that poses or could be perceived as a financial or intellectual conflict of interest in connection with the manuscript.

Authors’ Conflict of Interest

 Authors are required during submission of their manuscripts to disclose any conflict of interest, and to acknowledge all funding sources supporting the work. The corresponding author must ensure that all authors have been asked to disclose any conflicts of interest.

Editors’ Conflict of Interest

When asked to evaluate a manuscript, reviewers and editors must disclose any association that poses a conflict of interest in connection with the manuscript. Recent collaborators, defined as people who have coauthored a paper or were a principal investigator on a grant with any of the authors within the past 48 months, must be excluded as editors and reviewers. Referees and editors are asked to recuse themselves from handling a paper if the conflict makes them unable to make an impartial scientific judgment or evaluation. A referee or editor who has a conflict but believes that it does not preclude his or her making a proper judgment must disclose to the journal the nature of the conflict.

 

 Definition of Author Misconduct

Potential Author Misconduct may arise from both submitted manuscripts and published articles. For purposes of this Policy, Author Misconduct may include but is not limited to:

- Fabrication or falsification of data;

- Plagiarism, either of one’s own work, ideas, processes, results, or words, or those of another person;

- Redundant publication of content that overlaps substantially with content already published in print or electronic media;

- Failure to credit an author, including removal of an author without the author’s consent and the consent of other co-authors.

- Inappropriate credit of an author, including adding as a “gift” or “guest” author an individual whose contribution does not meet the Journals’ definition of authorship.*

- Submitting as one’s own work “ghostwritten” manuscripts, where the listed author(s) is unfamiliar with the underlying data and relevant documentation and had minimal or limited input in the development and/or writing of the article;

- Treatment of research subjects in a manner that does not comport with applicable laws or accepted standards of ethics

 Author misconduct does not include honest errors or differences of opinion, which may be managed through the Journals’ errata processes.

 Journal Response to Potential Author Misconduct

1. Notice of Potential Misconduct and Response to Complaining Party

Notification of potential Author Misconduct is immediately referred to the Publisher of the Journal to which the relevant article was submitted or in which it is published. The individual who notifies the Journal of the potential Misconduct will receive acknowledgment that the Journal has received the notice and is reviewing it in accordance with this Policy. The individual who notifies the Journal of the potential Misconduct will generally not be entitled to any further notice or role in the investigation, except in limited circumstances where he or she is affected personally by the potential Misconduct (e.g., his or her work was plagiarized). Notification of potential author misconduct may also arise internally, where a Journal staff member becomes aware of potential Author Misconduct and alerts the Publisher.

2. Author Notification and Investigation

Upon receiving notice of potential Author Misconduct, the Journal will conduct a preliminary investigation of available information concerning the potential Misconduct, which may include additional communication with the individual who notified the Journal of the potential Misconduct, and the reviewers, editors, and staff members responsible for the manuscript or published article. If, upon investigation, the reported behavior appears to constitute Author Misconduct, the Publisher, and the Editor-in-Chief will generally determine that additional investigation is warranted.

The Journal will then notify in writing the corresponding author of the potential Misconduct and ask for an explanation. If no response is received within a reasonable period of time, or the Journal receives an unsatisfactory response, the Journal will contact the corresponding author’s institution and co-authors, as appropriate. If the potential Misconduct implicates work published in an outside Journal, the Editor-in-Chief or the Publisher of the Journal may contact the Editor or Publisher of that Journal. If the potential Misconduct relates to scientific research, the Editor-in-Chief or Publisher of the Journal may ask the institution where the research was conducted to provide study data and other information to establish the legitimacy of reported research results. Throughout this process the Journal will use as reference points algorithms suggested by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), which are available online at http://publicationethics.org/resources/flowcharts, and requirements set out by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), which are available online at http://www.icmje.org/icjme-recommendations. If at any point during the Journal’s investigation, an author admits to Misconduct or provides a satisfactory explanation, the Journal will conclude its investigation and consider sanctions.

3. Sanctions

If Misconduct is verified or admitted, the Journal may apply sanctions against the author(s) at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief and Publisher. Sanctions may vary depending upon the severity of the Misconduct, and whether the manuscript in question was submitted or published. Authors will be notified of any sanctions in writing. Sanctions may include, but are not limited to:

- Letter of reprimand to author(s) of a submitted or published manuscript;

- Notice to author’s institution and/or institution where research was conducted;

- Restriction on author(s) publishing in the Journals for a specified period of time; and

- The Journal reserves the right to reject a submitted manuscript, and to retract or publish an erratum or statement of concern about a published article, as appropriate.
