Publication Ethics

  • Green Publication follows all the best practices defined by the COPE (Committee Of Publication Ethics) for editors.
  • Our journal always ready to harvest views and suggestion of authors and editorial board members to improve the journal quality.
  • To maintain the quality, we follow the double-blind peer reviewing methods to ensuring the quality and fair policy of publication.
  • We always assign the reviewing process to our suitable qualified editorial board members.
  • Our team follows different processes, which encourages accuracy and clarity of research paper and including the technical editing if required.

    There are ethical publishing guidelines to guarantee high-quality research publications, public confidence in scientific findings, and recognition for the efforts and ideas of the author(s). The publishing in an evaluated journal of a paper is a vital component in the creation of consistent and valued research. The qualities of the authors and organizations that sponsor them are directly reflected. The peer-reviewed affirm the quality and authenticity of the research article. All manuscripts are subject to peer review and should comply with academic performance guidelines. If the publisher approves the entries, peer reviewers shall be considered, the authors of whom remain anonymous in their identities.

Authorship and Contributor-ship

      Authorship shall be limited to those who contributed significantly to the construction, design, implementation, or analysis of the study published. There is support for transparency in writers' contributions. Everybody who has made a major scientific contribution should be included. After the application, authorship contributions may be identified. Authorship changes have to be announced to the journal and all contributors have committed to it. Anyone who participated in the investigation or writing of manuscripts but is not an author must be granted their approval. The submissions would not be taken into account by anybody other than one of the writers.

Manuscript Handling:

     Green Publication provides an online scheme for the management of article. As editors are called to work on an e-mail manuscript, articles may be submitted by e-mail or online. These articles will then be forwarded to our editors for review. Editors and reviews are then analyzing the article as to whether it is genuine, original, up-to-date. If necessary, they give comments or send it for revisions. The article is approved and accepted after careful checking and revisions.

Manuscript handling also look after the error corrections, removal of an article if found plagiarized, and post-publication process where the work of author being checked by editor or colleague. Mechanisms are required to edit, revise or retract the article after publication.

Post-Publication Discussions and Correction

     Where errors in written papers are found, the author must inform the chief editor about the correction to be made. If mistakes occur that have a serious effect on the findings or proof of misconduct, the COPE’s retraction guidelines may include a withdrawal or an expression of concern. It is standard practice today to post articles publicly until they are written before they are included in an issue. If a conflict about authorship arises in this interval, the editors need not post the article in the issue until the dispute over authorship has been settled. As questions about authorship emerge when an article is published, the editor must systematically examine the matter.  The editor may, at his discretion without consulting either of the appointed authors, make simple corrections of names, affiliations, or certificates, but all writers should be informed of a correction to their article to be transparent. Changes of authorship or extension or exclusion require the approval of all authors listed; publishers may have certain mechanisms in place, such as the provision that all authors agree to a suggested change.

Article Correction, Retraction, Removal, and Withdrawal Policy

               We have a responsibility as publishers to preserve the scientific record's credibility. Minor corrections that do not impact the scientific understanding of the paper (for example, formatting or typographical errors, or wording preference) can be refused if submitted after publication to avoid inconsistencies downstream. The correction method is determined by the journal's stage of publication. If the journal has already been published in an issue, a correction notice will appear in the next print or online issue. The correction notice will be linked to the online version of the paper, and vice versa.

Green Publication’s Journal editors consider retractions when there is evidence of skewed data or conclusions, plagiarism, duplicate reporting, or unethical study. If a journal is under review, we may consider issuing an expression of concern notice. The retraction notices explain why the journal was withdrawn. “Green Publication believes in safeguarding the credibility of our content as well as the role of publishers in scholarly debate. We consider the journal and book chapters we publish to be the version of record,' or the permanent bibliographic ‘minutes' of academic study”. Only for good cause may this version of the record be revised, altered, or removed.

Publishing Ethics Issues

     Green Publication is committed to maintaining the completeness of the publications we publish. The value of academic publications is based on ethical behavior. To provide a broad overview, the following points are not exhaustive. Our writers and editors are encouraged to visit the website of the Committee on Publication Ethics. We firmly believe in the accuracy of our research record and follow the transparency and best practice principles of COPE in academic publishing. If you don't know about an ethical problem with the Newspaper, it is possible that you can find the reply in COPE's abundance of resources, so please contact the editor of the Journal or the editor of the Green Publication if you have any doubts or questions

How the Journal will Handle the complaints and appeals

     Green Publication has a transparent mechanism in place for dealing with criticism about the publication, its staff, editorial board, or publisher. “Authors could appeal an Editor's decision on their paper. If you want to appeal a verdict, send an email to the chief editor of a journal detailing why you believe the reviews should be reversed”.  Following are the types of complaints and appeals and their solutions.

  • Editor decision: The editor oversees the review process and ensures that the completely academic material of the journal is proper, honest, and timely published.

Appeal for Editor’s Decision: “Authors have the right to appeal to the editor's position on their post. When you wish to appeal a ruling, you must email the diary to explain why you think the verdict should be overturned”. Should reviewer reports had been published in the previous letter of rejection, these criticisms should also have been addressed. All appeals are submitted to the journal's publisher, who reviews the article before making a definitive judgment, as well as the particulars of the peer-review method.

  • Plagiarism Issue: Plagiarism occurs when an author uses the work of another author without consent, attribution, or acknowledgment (usually the work of another author). Plagiarism may take several forms, ranging from literal plagiarism to paraphrasing someone else's job.

How to complain: Contact a journal editor who approved the publication of bogus article, make your statements and be ready to show evidence. In the absence of any response, notify the journal publisher - they can use legal means to compel the fake paper to be withdrawn.

Correction of Published Articles: You can contact the Chief-Editor of the  journal for the correction of errors. Any error or omission that could affect the context of the article but does not affect the factual validity of the article will be corrected where appropriate. Mislabeling a statistic, a lack of main funding facts, or competing author interests are some examples. First, the importance of the mistake must be verified. If the mistake is too important, you can write an error in the same article to modify the findings and the end of the articles.

Addition or Removal of Author: Green Publication typically discusses changes in authors during the review process or acceptance stage, but before the article is published.

Solution: A good justification to update the list of writers, and satisfactory, and both writers have written proof of their agreement with the author's list update This necessitates the author's guarantee that it is added or removed with the addition or omission of writers. In special circumstances, Green Publication accepts this submission after approval. Although our Chief-Editor reviews this submission, the editor will delay publication. When the editor agrees, the manuscript may be revised or corrected if it was already published online.

Approving Special Issues

                 Special Issues are dedicated collections of articles published by Green Publication journals that highlight new areas of study within a field or provide a forum for a deeper inquiry into an established research subject. Authors should be aware that papers in Special Issues are subject to the same content and originality. Overviews of the writers' previously published work, such as peer-reviewed reviews, book chapters, official studies, and so on, are not permitted in Special Issue articles. The scope of the Special Issue MUST be wide enough to attract a sufficient number of submissions while remaining narrow enough to produce a coherent selection of papers. Only cheif editor can approve the special issue discussiong with the advisory board.

Misconduct Handling

  • A misconduct contains the following issues in a research paper:
    • Redundant Publication in submitted/published manuscript
    • Plagiarism in submitted/published manuscript
    • Fabricated data in submitted/published manuscript
  • If any misconduct information submitted by reviewer or reader, our team plans to investigate the issue to collect evidence for the scenario.
  • Once we found enough evidence(s) to prove the misconduct was true, the author is informed about their misconduct to get their clarification on the matter.
  • If our author accepts the misconduct we provide the original reference for the text and inform the reader about the issue.
  • When author fails to provide enough evidence(s) to prove his/her work or denies the misconduct, we have the right to reject his/her article from our journal, in case if already published then we have the right to remove the article from our website.
  • In case of author fails to communicate, we proceed to contact their institution to raise the issue of misconduct to get their reviews.

Changes in Authorship

The authorship changes are concerned in the following condition:-

  1. Request to add a corresponding author before publication of the manuscript.
  2. Request to remove a corresponding author before publication of the manuscript.
  3. Request to add a corresponding author after the publication of the manuscript.
  4. Request to remove a corresponding author after the publication of the manuscript.

To change the authorship of an article we process the following steps:-

  • Ask to provide a valid reason(s) for changing in the authorship of the manuscript.
  • We ask from all authors if they agree on the change of authorship details. If all agree the authorship will be changed.
  • If not all authors agree, the article will be suspended until all authors agree to change in authorship details.
  • In case if the article already published and author do not agree on the change in authorship, their institution will be asked to resolve the issue of their authorship if the excluded author wish to proceed.
