Publication Ethics

  1. The submitted manuscript should be original and free from plagiarism.

  2. The submitted manuscript should not have been previously published elsewhere in any form or language (partially or in full) and is not being considered for publication in other journals.

  3. The author must provide transparency on the re-use of material to avoid the concerns about text-recycling in case the new work concerns an expansion of previous work (‘self-plagiarism’).

  4. Authors should make sure they have permissions for the use of software, questionnaires/(web) surveys, scales, or third party resources in their manuscript.
