Roles and Responsibilities
Please note that Editors are responsible for deciding which articles submitted to the AGG+ journal will be published. Editors reserve the right not to publish submitted proposals in case they do not meet relevant standards of academic publishing. Editors shall hold no conflict of interest with the articles they consider for publication. Editors shall evaluate proposals for their intellectual content free from any racial, gender, sexual, religious, ethnic, or political bias. Editors shall not use unpublished materials disclosed in submitted manuscripts without the written consent of the authors. The information and ideas presented in submitted manuscripts shall be kept confidential and shall not be used for personal gain.
Authors are responsible for the claims that their article is their original work, it has not been published before and it is not being under consideration for publication elsewhere. An article that has already been published cannot be reprinted in the AGG+ journal. In the case when the submitted article is a result of a research project, or its previous version has been presented at a conference, authors should provide background information in the Acknowledgements section. The responsibility of each author is to ensure that the articles submitted to AGG+ adhere to general ethical standards of academic publishing. Authors are responsible for the claim that the articles contain no unlawful statements and do not violate the rights of third parties. The Publisher shall not be held legally responsible should there be any compensation claims.
Reviewers assess manuscripts for compliance with the profile of the journal, the relevance of the investigated topic and applied methods, the originality and relevance of information presented in the manuscript, the presentation style and scholarly apparatus. Reviewers should alert the Editors for any reasonable doubt of a possible breach of academic integrity. Reviewers should not have a conflict of interest concerning the research, the authors and the funding sources for the research. If such conflicts exist, the reviewers should inform the Editors without delay. Reviewers should express their views clearly and present supporting arguments. Every manuscript received for review needs to be treated as highly confidential. Reviewers shall not use unpublished materials disclosed in submitted manuscripts without the written consent of the author. The information and ideas presented in submitted manuscripts shall be kept confidential and must not be used for personal gain.
