Article publication ethics

Authors Wishing To Publish Their Papers In HFEJ Journals Must Abide To The Following:


Authors should correctly present their findings and provide an informed discussion of the importance of their findings.

All and only those who qualify for authorship should be included as authors and their contribution should be included in the manuscript.

Any details that could be viewed as a potential conflict of interest of the author(s) must be published in the paper prior to submission.

Data and techniques used in the analysis should be discussed in adequate depth in the article so that other researchers can reproduce the study. Raw data must be made publicly accessible unless there is a valid reason to do so (e.g. confidentiality of company information).

Simultaneous submission of manuscripts to more than one journal is not permitted.
Original research findings must be novel and not previously published, even reported previously in a different language.

Redundant publications are not permitted. This means publishing many very similar manuscripts based on the same experiment.

For any content previously published (including quotations, figures, or tables), any necessary permission to publish must be obtained from the copyright holder.

Errors and inaccuracies found following release shall be immediately communicated to the Editorial Office.
This list is not comprehensive, and writers should be mindful of local laws and agreed standards in scholarly publishing.
