Ethics & Disclosures


The journal is committed to maintaining the highest level of integrity in the content published.


Content published in this journal is peer-reviewed.


The journal has adopted clear and rigorous ethical guidelines for best working practices. It follows the guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and abides by its Code of Conduct in dealing with potential cases of misconduct. It adheres to the principles outlined below, which have been devised to ensure accurate, trustworthy, transparent and efficient publication of scientific papers.



 


Corrections and Retractions


JSDTL publishes corrections, retractions, and expressions of concern as appropriate, and as quickly as possible. We follow the COPE guidelines where applicable.
A notice of correction will be issued by JSDTL to document and correct substantial errors that appear in online articles when these errors significantly affect the content or understanding of the work reported (e.g., error in data presentation or analysis) or when the error affects the publication's metadata (e.g., misspelling of an author's name). In these cases, JSDTL will publish a correction that will be linked to the original article.
In very rare cases, we may choose to correct the article itself and re-post it online. If that course is taken, a correction notice will also be created to document the changes to the original article.
Authors who wish to alert JSDTL to a situation where a correction may be warranted are requested to contact us with the relevant details (journal, full citation of the article, and description of the error) at: corrections@sciview.net
Authors are encouraged to post comments to their articles to note typographical errors and other problems that do not significantly affect the scientific integrity of the work. 


Conflicts of Interest


Journal of Sustainable Development of Transport and Logistics requires all authors, editors, members and reviewers to disclose any conflicts of interest that may be inherent in the submissions. Financial relationships, personal relationships, academic relationship, intellectual passion, etc., are usually considered to be the most important conflicts of interest. Such arrangements must be disclosed where there is any risk of a perception of compromise. The policy of the journal is that the judgment or decision taken on the submitted manuscript should not be compromised or affected by any conflict of interest. The corresponding author must ensure that all authors have been asked to disclose any conflict of interest. Reviewers must disqualify themselves from reviewing the specific manuscript if they believe that they are involved in any conflict of interest. If a potential bias exists, editors and editorial staff should withdraw themselves from handling the paper.


When a conflict of interest is disclosed either by the author or editor, a footnote describing the conflict must be included with the published article. All sources of funding must be disclosed at the end of the main text under a separate heading ‘Funding’. Authors, referees, or editors who have deliberately or recklessly failed to disclose conflicts of interest may receive sanctions, including being banned from publishing in the Journal of Sustainable Development of Transport and Logistics for a period of time.


Editors, authors, and peer reviewers have a responsibility to disclose interests that might appear to affect their ability to present or review data objectively. These include relevant financial (for example, patent ownership, stock ownership, consultancies, speaker's fees), personal, political, intellectual, or religious interests. The editors of JSDTL require statements about conflicts of interest from authors. Editors should explain that these statements should provide information about financial (for example, patent ownership, stock ownership, consultancies, speaker's fees), personal, political, intellectual, or religious interests relevant to the area of research or discussion.


Editorial independence


Editorial independence is respected. Journal publishers do not interfere with editorial decisions. The relationship between the editor and the journal publisher is set out in a formal contract, and an appeal mechanism for disputes is established. Editorial SciView and Centre of Sociological Research, as the publishers of JSDTL, work with the journal editors to set journal policies appropriately and aim to meet those policies, particularly with respect to: editorial independence; research ethics(including confidentiality, consent, and the special requirements for research in social sciences); authorship; transparency and integrity (conflicts of interest, research funding, reporting standards); peer review (for further information concerning responsibilities in relation to the peer review process.


Accuracy


The editors of JSDTL have a responsibility to ensure the accuracy of the material they publish. JSDTL encourages authors and readers to inform them if they discover errors in published work. We publish corrections if errors are discovered that could affect the interpretation of data or information presented in an article. Corrections arising from errors within an article (by authors or journals) are distinguishable from retractions and statements of concern relating to misconduct.


Academic debate


JSDTL encourages academic debate. JSDTL encourages correspondence commenting on published items and should always invite authors to respond to any correspondence before publication. However, authors do not have a right to veto unfavourable comments about their work and they may choose not to respond to criticisms.


Responsible publication practices


Editors of JSDTL pursue cases of suspected misconduct that become apparent during the peer-review and publication processes. In instances of confirmed misconduct, editors may consider imposing sanctions on the authors at fault for a period of time. Sanctions must be applied consistently. Before imposing sanctions, editors formally define the conditions in which they will apply (and remove) sanctions, and the processes they will use to do this.


Basic aspects of transparency 


Readers have a right to know who funded a research project or the publication of a document. Research funders should be listed on all research papers. Funding for any type of publication, for example, by a commercial company, charity or government department, should be stated within the publication. Other sources of support for publications should be clearly identified in the manuscript, usually in an acknowledgment.


Authors of the Papers


The list of authors should accurately reflect who did the work. All published work should be attributed to one or more authors. JSDTL instructions for authors explain the concepts of academic authorship, setting out which contributions do and do not qualify for authorship. The editors of JSDTL ask for a declaration that all authors meet the journal's criteria for authorship and that nobody who meets these criteria has been omitted from the list (Submission Preparation Checklist https://jsdtl.sciview.net/index.php/jsdtl/about/submissions). If an authorship dispute emerges after publication (for example, somebody contacts the editor claiming they should have been an author of a published paper, or requesting that their name be withdrawn from a paper), the editors of JSDTL contact the corresponding author and, where possible, the other authors to establish the veracity of the case. 


Copyright Policy


Authors retain copyright to their work and are asked to grant SciView.Net the right to publish the article as the final, definitive and citable Version of Scholarly Record. In turn, we will make the article in its entirety freely available on our online platform with no subscription fee, article pay-to-view fee or any other form of access fee, and with no publication embargo. We use the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license on articles published in the SciView Series. Authors retain copyright and allow anyone else to distribute, remix and build upon their work; commercial reuse is allowed. Anyone doing so must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that the authors endorse them or their use of the work).


For anyone wishing to re-use an author’s work, we require:



  • the full article citation (as indicated in the PDF of each article) to be included, unchanged, with the reused article or derivative work

  • for the original license terms to be made clear and that the work is previously published in an open access journal and freely available

  • for the DOI of the version of record to be included


For more information on the Creative Commons Attribution licenses take a look at the human readable summary, or the  full legal code.


Plagiarism and copyright


JSDTL editors and readers have a right to expect that submitted work is the author's own, that it has not been plagiarized (i.e. taken from other authors without permission, if permission is required) and that copyright has not been breached (for example, if figures or tables are reproduced). We ask authors to declare that the work reported is their own and that they are the copyright owner. Papers are revised with Similarity Check to avoid plagiarism. In case of plagiarism, the author could state the situation through the e-mail: editor.jsdtl@sciview.net.


Protecting intellectual property


JSDTL authors have a right to protect their intellectual property. JSDTL licenses content from authors, they have the copyright of their papers. The authors may transfer the copyright from their papers to the editors of JSDTL.


Peer reviewer conduct and intellectual property


Authors are entitled to expect that peer reviewers or other individuals privy to the work an author submits to JSDTL will not steal their research ideas or plagiarize their work. JSDTL explains to peer reviewers that material is in confidence until it has not been published. Editors of JSDTL protect peer reviewers from authors and, even if peer reviewer identities are revealed, should discourage authors from contacting peer reviewers directly, especially if misconduct is suspected.

In order to provide free access to readers, and to cover the costs of peer review, copyediting, typesetting, long-term archiving, and journal management, an article processing charge (APC) of 110 US Dollars (USD) applies to papers accepted after peer review. In addition to US Dollars (USD), we also accept payment in Euros (EUR).


Local VAT or Sales Tax will be added if applicable.


Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use SciView's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions. Note that many national and private research funding organizations and universities explicitly cover APCs for articles resulting from funded research projects.


Discounts or cancellations of APCs are also available to authors from low-income countries. To do this, contact the editor-in-chief (editor.jsdtl@sciview.net).


For authors from low- and middle-income countries, financial assistance may be granted on a case-by-case basis. Applications submitted before article submission are assessed by the Editor-in-Chief based on the quality of the research article and the authors’ ability to pay.


The request for financial assistance is considered only when it is made at the time of submission of the article. Any request regarding the same after processing of article will be declined.

About peer-review


The peer-review process


Each JSDTL title offers the highest standards of peer review, overseen by expert editors and editorial boards. We’re proud of the friendly and constructive approach we take with all our potential authors. Our editorial teams evaluate submissions on the grounds of relevance, sound methodology, and clarity, rather than the predicted level of future importance.
Our peer-review process is double blind.


Double blind review



  • Both the reviewer and the author are anonymous.

  • Author anonymity prevents any reviewer bias, for example based on an author's country of origin or previous controversial work.

  • Articles written by prestigious or renowned authors are considered on the basis of the content of their papers, rather than their reputation.

  • Reviewers can often identify the author through their writing style, subject matter or self-citation.


Peer reviewer selection and performance


Editors of JSDTL have a responsibility to ensure a high standard of objective, unbiased, and timely peer review. Editors monitor the performance of peer reviewers/editorial board members and record the quality and timeliness of their reviews. Peer reviewers who repeatedly produce poor quality, tardy, abusive or unconstructive reviews are not used again. Editors of JSDTL encourage peer reviewers to identify if they have a conflict of interest with the material they are being asked to review, and editors ask that peer reviewers decline invitations requesting peer review where any circumstances might prevent them producing fair peer review.



Timing of publication


Editors of JSDTL aim to ensure timely peer review and publication for papers they receive, especially where, to the extent that this can be predicted, findings may have important implications. Authors should be aware that priority publication is most likely for papers that, as judged by the journal's editorial staff, may have important implications. The timing of publication may also be influenced by themed issues or if editors group submissions on a similar topic which, inevitably, prevents them from being published in the order that articles were accepted.


Appeals


Authors have a right to appeal editorial decisions. JSDTL establishes a mechanism for authors to appeal peer review decisions. Editors mediate all exchanges between authors and peer reviewers during the peer-review process. If agreement cannot be reached, editors consider inviting comments from additional peer reviewer(s), if the editor feels that this would be helpful. All the files related to each paper to avoid academic misconduct are kept properly at SciView.NET (OJS) including author submission, review decision form, and the copyright form.


Open Access Policy


Open access is an ongoing publication practice which differs in the way traditional methods of publishing papers to the public get submitted, reviewed, authenticated and finally published. In Open Access publication model neither readers nor a reader’s institution are charged for access to articles or other resources. Users are free to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles without requiring a subscription to the journal in which these articles are published.
