During the process of conducting research and publishing it, it is of great importance for an author, alongside all parties involved, to strictly adhere to codes of conduct relevant to existing regulatory bodies. As the quality and integrity of the work displayed directly mirrors that of the institution/author associated with it, publishing ethically is one thing to consider throughout the process.
International Journal of Environmental Science Sustainable Development has listed its guidelines for authors, for editors, and for reviewers. It outlines ethical issues or misconduct cases that could arise when submitting a manuscript and should be made familiar to an author.
The ESSD journal is an open access journal. In other words, all published material will be immediately available for the public to read and download free of any charges. To publish, the journal has specific fees to be paid by the author(s) or on their behalf.
Authors, publishers and the research community/public are all closely governed by a set of guidelines in their use, distribution and publishing of articles as follows:
After communication of the final acceptance of an article, authors are required
to carefully read
and sign a publishing agreement, to be communicated upon acceptance notice,
rights granted to the author and publisher by publishing the submitted article.
In this case,
authors are agreed to be given copyrights for the article but license exclusive
rights to the
publisher as well. Resale or distribution of the published material is only
possible if permission is
granted by the publisher.
Similarly, if the submitted manuscript includes works from a copyrighted material, permission must be granted and the source referenced/credited. More information on copyrights will be found within the license agreement. This agreement is to ensure that the author’s submitted work has not been previously published and is not under consideration for publication in another journal.
