We have different policies regarding article submission to our journal as well as site visits and online publishing!
Please follow the given excerpts for further detail.
Communicate with Respect
NEGAAS values respectful partnerships for trust and excellent publishing services. Staff must be professional and polite, and the academic community and public should behave similarly. NEGAAS prohibits aggressive conduct, harassment, bullying, and discrimination against employees. They may report serious situations to employers or authorities and refuse business with those who breach this policy frequently or significantly.
NEGAAS’s rules lay out authoring ideas and best practices for aspiring authors. Before submitting, the publisher expects that all writers agree with the material and provide express authorization. Authors, including those who made important contributions to the study, critically authored or amended the work, authorized the published version, and agreed to be accountable for maintaining accuracy and integrity, should follow rules appropriate to their research field. NEGAAS publications promote cooperation with peers and anticipate co-authors when all authorship conditions are met. Contributors who do not satisfy all of the requirements should be acknowledged in the Acknowledgements section.
Disclosures and declarations
Authors must provide information on funding sources, interests, ethics committee approval, informed consent, and statement on animal welfare for research involving humans and animals. The choice to include this material is influenced by the magazine’s scope and article’s scope, as work may impact public health or general welfare.
Authors must verify that their data, materials, software, and code are consistent with stated claims and industry standards. Journals may have unique rules on data sharing, so consult the Instructions for Authors for more information.
Role of the Corresponding Author
One author is assigned as Corresponding Author and acts on behalf of all co-authors and ensures that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately addressed.
The Corresponding Author is responsible for the following requirements:
- ensuring that all listed authors have approved the manuscript before submission, including the names and order of authors;
- managing all communication between the Journal and all co-authors, before and after publication;
- providing transparency on re-use of material and mention any unpublished material (for example, manuscripts in press) included in the manuscript in a cover letter to the Editor;
- making sure disclosures, declarations, and transparency on data statements from all authors are included in the manuscript as appropriate (see above).
The requirement of managing all communication between the journal and all co-authors during submission and proofing may be delegated to a Contact or Submitting Author.
In this case please make sure the Corresponding Author is clearly indicated in the manuscript.
Through the publication of author contribution statements, NEGAAS portfolio journals encourage transparency. Each author’s contribution must be listed in a statement of responsibility that the authors must provide with their submission. Different disciplines produce discrete efforts whereas others produce collective efforts, varying the amount of intricacy. Additionally, NEGAAS journals permit one group of co-authors to be designated as having made an equal contribution or jointly supervising the work.
The institution where the majority of each author’s work was completed should be included as their principal affiliation. The author’s current address may also be mentioned if they have since relocated. Addresses won’t be modified or updated once the article is published.
Authorship issues or disputes
The Journal cannot resolve authorship disputes during peer review or publishing. Authors must settle conflicts independently. If unable, the Journal may refuse publication or raise the issue with the author’s institution.
Authors must maintain confidentiality in all communication with the Journal, including direct representatives and reviewers’ reports, unless explicit consent is obtained.
Dead or unable-to-write writers
Co-authors should obtain permission from a legal representative, such as a close family member, to include an author after the co-author passes away or becomes incompetent.
Authors should use ORCID ID for article submission or acquire it through the submission process.
