Peer Review Process

In the manuscript review process, a double blind review is carried out, where the author does not know who is reviewing the manuscript and vice versa, the reviewer does not know the owner of the manuscript being reviewed. This is done so that the manuscript review process can run objectively.

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

Publication Ethics

For Authors:

  1. Reporting Standards: Authors must provide an accurate presentation of the original research report as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Researchers must present research results honestly and without fabrication, falsification or inappropriate manipulation of data. A manuscript must contain sufficient detail and references to enable other people to repeat the research. Cheating or intentionally presenting inaccurate data is unethical and unacceptable behavior. Manuscripts must follow the journal submission guidelines.
  2. Originality and Plagiarism: Authors must ensure writing completely original work. Manuscripts may not be submitted to more than one publisher simultaneously, unless there is approval from the editor for joint publication. Relevant previous work and publications, whether by other researchers or the author's own, should be acknowledged and properly referenced. Primary literature should be cited whenever possible. Original words taken directly from publications by other researchers should appear in quotation marks in accordance with standard citation techniques.
  3. Multiple, Redundant, or Simultaneous Publication: In general authors may not submit the same manuscript to more than one journal simultaneously. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal simultaneously is unethical and unacceptable behavior. Multiple publications originating from a single research project should be clearly identified and the primary publication should be referenced
  4. Source Acknowledgment: Authors must acknowledge all data sources used in research by citing them. Proper acknowledgment of the work of others should always be made.
  5. Article Authorship: Authorship of a research publication must accurately reflect the individual's contribution to the work and its reporting. Authorship should be limited to those who have made significant contributions to the conception, design, conduct or interpretation of the research being reported. Others who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. The author also ensures that all authors have seen and approved the submitted version of the manuscript and the inclusion of their names as co-authors.
  6. Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest: All authors must clearly disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project must be disclosed.
  7. Fundamental Errors in the Published Work: If the author discovers significant errors or inaccuracies in the submitted manuscript, then the author must immediately notify the journal editor or publisher and work with the editor to retract or correct the manuscript.

For Editors:

  1. Publication Decision: Based on the review report from the reviewer, the editor can accept, reject, or request modifications to the manuscript. The validity of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers should always drive the decision. Editors can be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and are limited by applicable legal requirements regarding defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The editor may consult with other editors or reviewers in making this decision. Editors must be responsible for everything they publish and must have procedures and policies to ensure the quality of the material they publish and maintain the integrity of the articles published.
  2. Manuscript Review: The editor must ensure that each manuscript is first evaluated by the editor for originality and conformity with the scope of the journal. Editors must ensure that the peer review process is carried out fairly and wisely. Editors should explain the peer review process through information for authors. Editors must carry out appropriate peer review of manuscripts being considered for publication by selecting people with adequate and relevant expertise and trying to avoid them from conflicts of interest.
  3. Fair Play: The editor must ensure that every manuscript accepted by the journal is reviewed in terms of its intellectual content without considering the gender, gender, race, religion, nationality, etc. of the author.
  4. Confidentiality: Editors must ensure that information regarding manuscripts submitted by authors is kept confidential. Editors should critically assess any potential breaches of data protection and author confidentiality.
  5. Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest: The Journal Editor will not use material not intended for publication disclosed in a submitted manuscript without the written consent of the author. Editors should not be involved in decisions about manuscripts in which they have a conflict of interest.

For Reviewers:

  1. Confidentiality: Information regarding manuscripts submitted by authors must be kept confidential. They may not be shown or discussed with others except as permitted by the editor.
  2. Acknowledgment of Sources: Reviewers must ensure that authors have acknowledged all sources of data used in the research. Reviewers should identify relevant published works referenced by the author. Reviewers should immediately notify the editor if they discover any irregularities, potential violations of publication ethics, become aware of substantial similarities between the manuscript and concurrent submission to another journal or published article, or suspect that an error may have occurred during the research or writing and submission of the manuscript.
  3. Objectivity Standard: Review of submitted manuscripts must be conducted objectively and reviewers must express their views clearly with supporting arguments. Reviewers should follow the journal's instructions regarding the specific feedback required of them, unless there is an argumentative reason not to do so. Reviewers should be constructive in their reviews and provide feedback that will help authors to improve their manuscripts. Reviewers should clarify which additional suggested studies are essential to support the claims made in the manuscript under consideration.
  4. Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest: Information or ideas specifically obtained through peer review activities must be kept confidential and not used for personal gain.
  5. Timeliness: Reviewers must respond within reasonable time limits in accordance with established policies. Reviewers only agree to review a manuscript if they are reasonably confident they can return the review results within the proposed or mutually agreed deadline, and inform the journal immediately if they require an extension. In the event that a reviewer feels it is impossible for him to complete the manuscript review within the specified time, he must communicate with the editor so that the manuscript can be sent to another reviewer.


Plagiarism Chechker

To maintain and ensure the originality of the manuscript, each manuscript submitted will be checked for similarity using iThenticate software from Turnitin. The permitted similarity tolerance limit is a maximum of 20%. Manuscripts that exceed the 20% similarity limit will be returned. Carrying out a similarity check after the submitted manuscript is declared in accordance with the Focus & Scope of the TELEIOS Journal
