Data and their reproducibility
The journal provides immediate open access to its content, based on the principle that providing the public with free access to research aids the wider global exchange of knowledge and thus adheres to the Budapest Open Access Initiative's definition of Open Access:
By "open access" to [peer-reviewed scientific literature], we mean its free availability on the public Internet, allowing any user to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search or use them for any lawful purpose, without any financial, legal or technical barriers, outside those that are inseparable from those involved in accessing the Internet itself. The only limitation on reproduction and distribution, and the only role of copyright in this domain, shall be to give authors control over the integrity of their works and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.
The journal does not impose embargo periods, article processing costs, shipping costs, or any other required charges on authors. Our mission is to support greater global knowledge sharing by allowing published research to be open to the public and reusable under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial License 4.0.
The journal will store full-text papers approved for publication, as well as all supplementary materials that the author deems necessary to share. Articles and their data will be processed by the journal and made available to the academic community in various formats for reading, digital preservation and reproduction.
The journal allows self-archiving and dissemination of data by authors in institutional repositories, social networks, and academic profiles and preprints repositories. Authors must maintain accurate supporting records to enable others to understand, verify, and replicate new findings. Authors should also provide access to these data and store them in a suitable storage repository for others to share and use.
In addition, it is considered good practice that:
- The data declared in documents are real and authentic.
- The data presented are relevant to the proposed study objective.
- Documents include citations and references to sources of information used.
- Authors have full power to publish the data and there are no natural or legal third parties with copyright that disagree with or are unaware of the publication of the data
On the other hand, they are considered unethical practices:
- Reusing data from a publication in new publications when these do not pursue different objectives or reach new conclusions.
- Plagiarism and fraudulent data in documents.
- Using data, images and other resources without the authorization of all the natural or legal authors of the work
- Using information that has not been consulted from the original source by some of the authors of the document
- Modifying or misrepresenting the meaning and context of the information contained in the sources used, as well as any other inappropriate use that alters the integrity of the original information original
