Journal Policies for Authors

Author Responsibilities and Ethics

Authorship of an Article

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. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be named in an Acknowledgement section. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors (according to the above definition) and no inappropriate co-authors are included in the author list of the manuscript, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.

Conflicts of Interest

Conflicts of interest arise when issues outside research could affect the evaluation of the work in terms of neutrality or objectivity. This can happen at any stage of research, including experimentation, article preparation, and publication.

Potential conflicts of interest are obliged to be declared. Undeclared conflicts of interests may incur sanctions. If conflicts of interest are revealed at the later stage, then submissions may be rejected, published articles may need to be retracted, or have a corrigendum published.

If there's an explicit declaration of potential conflicts of interest, then the outcome is formed regarding objective decisions about the work and its review process.

Possible fields of conflicts of interest: financial, affiliations, intellectual property, personal, ideologic, and academic.

Authors: Disclosure and conflicts of interest

All authors should disclose in their article any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that might be construed to influence the results or their interpretation of the article. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.

Originality and Plagiarism

Authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

Extrica Journals uses Crossref Similarity Check (iThenticate) and their own software to detect submissions that overlap with published and submitted articles.

Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication

An author should not, in general, publish article describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Parallel submission of the same manuscript to more than one journal constitutes unethical publishing behaviour, is unacceptable and instantly rejected.

Data access, use, and retention

Authors can be asked to provide the raw data of their study together with the paper for editorial review. In any event, authors should ensure accessibility of such data to other competent professionals for at least ten years after publication (preferably via an institutional or subject-based data repository or other data centre), provided that the confidentiality of the participants can be protected and legal rights concerning proprietary data do not preclude their release. Also, authors should ensure that they have permission for the use of software, questionnaires/(web) surveys, and scales in their studies.

Acknowledgment of sources

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should also cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

For all parties involved in the process of publishing (the author, the journal editor(s), peer reviewers and the publisher) it is necessary to agree upon standards of expected ethical behaviour. The ethics statements for our journals are based on Code of Conduct and Best-Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors (Committee on Publication Ethics, 2011). Read more here: Publication Ethics.

Refund and Return

Prior to the publication, there's full refund opportunity (bearing bank transfer fees on the Customers's account). After the publication date, refund is not possible as service was already provided and gone through many steps from review, plagiarism check, layout editing to publication in print and electronic formats.

Conference registration fee refund is only possible 4 weeks before the conference date.
