2-BEFORE YOU BEGIN
2-1- Publishing Ethics
The ethical policy of JUAH is based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) guidelines and complies with JUAH Editorial Board codes of conduct. Readers, authors, reviewers and editors should follow these ethical policies once working with JUAH. The ethical policy of JUAH is liable to determine which of the typical research papers or articles submitted to the journal should be published. The publishing decision is based on the suggestion of the journal's reviewers and editorial board members. The ethical policy insisted the Editor-in-Chief, may confer with other editors or reviewers in making the decision. The reviewers are necessary to evaluate the research papers based on the submitted content in confidential manner. The reviewers also suggest the authors to improve the quality of research paper by their reviewing comments. Authors should ensure that their submitted research work is original and has not been published elsewhere in any language. Applicable copyright laws and conventions should be followed by the authors. Any kind of plagiarism constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. For information on this matter in publishing and ethical guidelines please visit (Publication Ethics).
In order to sustain the peer review system, authors have an obligation to participate in peer review process to evaluate manuscripts from others. When appropriate, authors are obliged to provide retractions and/or corrections of errors to the editors and the Publisher. All papers submitted to JUAH journal will be peer reviewed for at least one round. JUAH journal adopts a double-blinded review policy: authors are blind to reviewers, and reviewers are also blind to authors. The peer review process is conducted in the online manuscript submission and peer-review system. After a manuscript is submitted to the online system, the system immediately notifies the editorial office. After passing an initial quality check by the editorial office, the manuscript will be assigned to two or more reviewers. After receiving reviewers’ comments, the editorial team member makes a decision. Because reviewers sometimes do not agree with each other, the final decision sent to the author may not exactly reflect recommendations by any of the reviewers. The decision after each round of peer review may be one of the following:
Accept without any further changes.
- Accept with minor revision. The revised manuscript may or may not be sent to the reviewers for another round of comments.
- Accept with major revision. The revised manuscript sent to the reviewers for another round of comments.
- Reject. The manuscript is rejected for publication by JUAH.
- Unable to review. The manuscript is reassigning to another reviewers.
In addition to Peer Review Process, the JUAH Journal has Post-Publication Evaluation by the scientific community. Post-Publication Evaluation is concentrated to ensure that the quality of published research, review and case report meets certain standards and the conclusions that are presented are justified. The post-publication evaluation includes online comments and citations on published papers. Authors may respond to the comments of the scientific community and may revise their manuscript. The Post-Publication Evaluation is described in such a way; it is allowing authors to publish quickly about Humanity sciences concepts.
