Responsibilities of Authors
Authors of original research papers and research reports should present an accurate account of the work performed and underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper.
A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work.
Authors should be able to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, when asked by the editor.
The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication.
Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.
