Publication Ethics

As a peer-reviewed journal, the rigor of scientific publication is expected to be observed in the course of evaluating papers that are submitted. Therefore, it is important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher, and the society.

The JBASE is committed to maintaining the highest level of integrity in the content published and takes all possible measures against any publication malpractices. All authors submitting their works to the JBASE for publication have to be original papers. The authors acknowledge that they have disclosed all and any actual or potential conflicts of interest with their work or partial benefits associated with it.

In the same manner, the JBASE publisher is committed to objective and fair blind peer-review of the submitted works for publication and is committed to preventing any actual or potential conflict of interests between the editorial and review personnel and the reviewed material. Any departures from the above-defined rules should be reported directly to the Editor-in-Chief, who are unequivocally committed to providing swift resolutions to any of such a type of problem.
