Authors’ Responsibilities

  • Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the manuscript. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable;
  • Authors should not submit the same manuscript simultaneously to more than one publication at a time. This constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable;
  • Authors must ensure that they have written original works and that any work or words of others authors, contributors or sources have been appropriately credited and referenced;
  • Authors submitting their works to ES for publication as original articles confirm that the submitted works represent their own contributions and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works without clearly citing the source. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work;
  • Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable;
  • Authors must ensure that the manuscript has not been published elsewhere;
  • Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project should be acknowledged or listed as contributors;
  • The corresponding author with the journal should ensure that all appropriate co-authors are included in the author list of the manuscript, and that there is a full consensus of all co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication;
  • Authors should disclose financial or other conflict of interest that might influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support should be disclosed;

Reviewers’ Responsibilities

  • Peer review assists the editor and executive editorial board of ES in making editorial decisions and, through the editorial communication with the author, may also assist the author in improving the manuscript;
  • Any invited referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its timely review will be impossible should immediately notify the editor so that alternative reviewers can be contacted;
  • Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents;
  • Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage;
  • Reviewers must report to the editor of ES if they are aware of copyright infringement and plagiarism on the author’s part;
  • Reviews should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments, so that authors can use them for improving the paper;
  • Reviewers evaluate manuscripts based on content without regard to the authors’ race, age, gender, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability, religious belief, citizenship, political orientation or social class;
