Publication Ethics - Ethical Policy of CogSust Nonprofit Ltd.
In all journals and conferences organised by CogSust Nonprofit Ltd., authors should declare that their submission has not been previously published, nor is it at another journal for consideration. The financial support and reference list are complete and precise, including the specification of URLs and DOIs where available. We require that all authors have significantly contributed to the research associated with the submission and approved the submitted version. Authors warrant that the article is their original work. Authors are obliged to participate in the peer review process, follow the reviewers' advice, meet the required deadlines, and provide retractions or corrections of mistakes if any occur.
All submissions are subjected to peer review, where the editors ask for at least two blind and independent reviews from international field experts, ensuring that reviewers have no conflict of interest with the authors. The reviews are based on objectively evaluating the scientific merits and the contribution to state of the art. Editors and reviewers handle the submission confidentially.
The publisher is committed to maintaining high ethical standards and preventing publications where research misconduct has occurred. In case of any misconduct allegation, the editor deals with the allegation appropriately. The COPE guidelines are followed in such ethical issues, including retractions and corrections. The Journal is ready to publish corrections if needed.
The names and email addresses submitted to CogSust Nonprofit Ltd. for author correspondence are used exclusively for the stated purposes and are not made available for any other purpose or to any other party.
The data collected from registered and non-registered users of this journal fall within the scope of the standard functioning of peer-reviewed journals and conferences. It includes information that makes communication possible for the editorial process; it is used to inform readers about the authorship and editing of content; it enables collecting aggregated data on readership behaviours and tracking geopolitical and social elements of scholarly communication.
Those involved in the editing of journals or conferences published by CogSust Nonprofit Ltd. seek to be compliant with industry standards for data privacy, including the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provision for "data privacy requirements" that include: (a) breach notification; (b) right of access; (c) the right to be forgotten; (d) data portability; (e) privacy by design.
The GDPR also allows for the recognition of "the public interest in the availability of the data", which has a particular saliency for those involved in maintaining the public record of scholarly publishing with the greatest integrity possible.
