JOURNAL CORNER is a peer-reviewed online journal. Codes of conduct are designed to provide a minimum set of standards with which all parties involved are expected to comply. This applies to those involved in the publication process, including authors, editor-in-chief, Editorial Board, reviewers and publishers. This statement is based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Guidelines for Journal Editors.


Ethical Guidelines for Journal Publication

Publishing articles in JOURNAL CORNER is a basic means of developing science and thought. Therefore, it is important to agree on standards of ethical behavior expected of all parties involved in publishing actions: authors, editors, reviewers, publishers and the public. As publisher, JOURNAL CORNER is responsible for all stages of publishing and recognizes ethical and other responsibilities. JOURNAL CORNER is also committed to ensuring that advertisements, reprints, or other commercial revenues do not impact or influence editorial decisions. 

Transparency and Confidentiality

The journal is clearly marked as a peer reviewed journal. Peer review is defined as obtaining advice on individual manuscripts from expert reviewers in the field who are not part of the journal's editorial staff. This process should be respected by any editorial staff by not disclosing any information about the submitted manuscript to anyone other than authors, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisors and appropriate publishers.

Copyright and Licensing Information

Authors may only submit manuscripts that are free from plagiarism and academic malpractice. However, editors and publishers are responsible for identifying and preventing indications related to suspected research violations, including plagiarism, citation manipulation, and data falsification / falsification, among others. Basically it is the author's job to only submit manuscripts that are free of academic plagiarism and malpractice.

Conflict of interest

Unpublished material related to the submitted article may not be used by the editor without the author's knowledge

Publication Decision

Every article that has been submitted to JOURNAL CORNER will be noted by the editor and they decide which article should be published. The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers should always drive such decisions. Editors may be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and limited by the legal requirements that will apply regarding defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. Editors can confer with editors or other reviewers in making decisions.

  1. Agree only to review manuscripts for which they have the subject expertise necessary to make an appropriate assessment and which they can judge at an appropriate time.
