Publication Ethics

Throughout the peer review process, whether authors, reviewers or journal editors are expected to adhere to the highest standards of professional ethics.

For authors:

All authors should be contributing members. The data and methods in the article are reproducible and have not been published elsewhere. If it involves an experiment that requires ethical approval, the author is requested to provide proof of the required materials in a timely manner. Universal Publishing does not accept an article for submission to multiple journals at the same time. If the article has errors after publication, the author needs to notify the editorial department in time for revision.

For reviewers:

The editorial department will try to avoid conflicts of interest before inviting reviewers, but if the reviewer publishes that he has a conflict of interest with the author of the article, he should inform the editorial department in time. We thank the reviewers for their cooperation in this regard. In the process of reviewing manuscripts, reviewers need to keep unpublished articles confidential and complete the article review independently. In comments on articles, you should not disclose your personal information or information that can lead the author to inquire about your personal information.

For academic editors:

The academic editors of Universal Publishing are outstanding scholars with a high level in a certain field. As an academic editor, you should be responsible for overseeing the peer review process for Universal Publishing. During the paper review process, check whether the reviewer's research direction is consistent with the article and whether the peer review process is standardized. During the decision-making process, check whether the article meets the journal's acceptance criteria and whether the article data is repeatable.
