Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

The Journal of Research on Engineering Structures and Materials (RESM) complies with the ethical rules in the editorial processes and publication of manuscripts. Similarity software is used to check plagiarism and manuscripts with inappropriate overlapping with other publications and/or containing other detected malpractices are not processed and immediately rejected.

Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Guidelines are part of the journal publication ethics practices and will be used to handle any related issues as the guiding documents. More information about these guidelines can be found at the COPE's website.

The attitude and rules of our journal followed in the editorial and publishing processes are given below for all involved parties (inline and addition to aforementioned COPE guidelines):

Editors and editorial board members cannot use the information about the submitted article for their personal advantage obtained due to their duties in the publication process. Editors may not use the research information or ideas in unpublished articles for their personal research purposes without the written permission of the authors. Editors should evade cases of real or perceived conflicts of interest. Editors cannot continue their editorial duties in situations where they have a conflict of interest with the author, company or institutions related to the assigned publication. In such cases, they inform the editor-in-chief and ensures that another editor is assigned to the publication.


Confidentiality

Editors and editorial staff cannot share any information about the articles in the publication process with anyone other than corresponding author, the editor-in-chief, potential reviewers, reviewers and other relevant journal personnel, as appropriate.


Fair play and editorial independence

Editors evaluate the submitted manuscripts solely on the basis of their scientific quality and the relevance to the journal’s scope. Editorial decisions are made regardless of the race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, citizenship, religious belief, political philosophy or institutional affiliation of the authors not affected by the policies of other parties outside of the journal itself. The Editor-in-Chief has full authority over all editorial content of the journal and the scheduling of its publication.


Publication decisions

The editors ensure that each submitted manuscript is evaluated by generally at least two reviewers who are experts in related fields. The editor-in-chief decides which of the articles submitted to the journal will be included in the editorial process and published by evaluating the validity of the submitted work, its importance for researchers and readers, reviewer reports, current legal requirements, copyright infringement and plagiarism. He/she may seek advice from other editors and reviewers during this evaluation process.


Involvement and cooperation in investigations

Editors take responsive measures when ethical issues arise with regard to a submitted manuscript or published article. Any reported act of unethical publishing behavior is investigated. Where necessary, editors cooperate with other journal staff on investigations on unethical conduct.  In case of detection of unethical behavior related to published articles, a correction, retraction, statement of concern or other relevant note will be published in the journal.

 

Responsibilities of Reviewers

Contribution to editorial decisions

Reviewers, in scope of the peer-review process, assist editors in making editorial decisions and support authors in improving their manuscripts.


Promptness

If they realize such cases after accepting the review invitation, they inform the editor and withdraw from the reviewship duty.

 

Responsibilities of Authors

Reporting standards

Authors of the original research work should provide an accurate report of their work and an objective discussion of its scientific significance. The data on which the study is based should be included in the article accurately and completely. The information contained in the article should be sufficient to allow the work to be replicated by others. Submitting fraudulent or consciously erroneous statements is considered unethical conduct and is unacceptable. Review articles should be up-to-date, unbiased, inclusive and accurate.

Data access and retention

During the editorial process, the authors may be asked to present the raw data of the research given in the article together with the submitted article or to make these data available to the public. In any case, authors should maintain relevant data accessible for at least ten years after publication, to the extent permitted by the protection of the confidentiality of the participants and relevant property rights.


Originality, plagiarism and acknowledgement of sources
