DYSONA journals work according to E-NAMTILA Publication Ethics policy. Furthermore, in accordance to COPE recommendations, we will always work to introduce good publication procedures and workflows to our authors and readers
These workflows, charts and special cases are introduced by COPE. Each one is used to achieve and understand one or more practice of COPE core practices. For further information please consider reading the practices in the following table using the DOI adjacent to each practice.
COPE flowcharts in relation to COPE's core practices (DOI for each flowchart is provided)
DYSONA journals policy for ethical roles and duties of publishing parties is inspired by COPE recommendations which are detailed in the following files provided by COPE:
Errata and Corrigenda Policy
Authors and readers are encouraged to report the errors that might present in an accepted article by contacting the editorial office directly via Contact us form and referring to the article and the error placement.
There are two types of errors:
Errors that have no effect on the scientific methodology, findings or conclusions of the article: these errors might be corrected by the original handling editor and the corresponding author without issuing a statement. As most of these errors are language and/or style mistakes; peer review session might not be required.
Errors that have an effect on the scientific methodology, findings or conclusions of the article: these errors should be handled by the original handling editor and the corresponding author as a new submission with all the needed peer review communications and all the needed statements of correction later.
DYSONA adopted guidelines in relation to specific fields of study
In relation to animal based experiments and the usage of laboratory animals, DYSONA journals adopts workflows and recommendations of (Animal Research: Reporting of In Vivo Experiments) (ARRIVE) guidelines provided by the national centre for the replacement refinement and reduction of animals in research (NC3Rs)
Agricultural and botanic researches
All the main aspects that serve reproducibility of results in agricultural based papers should be reported. These aspects include but not limited to the following points:
Quantitative polymerase chain reaction experiments (qPCR)
All submitted qPCR manuscripts should confirm the usage MIQE: Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time PCR Experiments
Please visit the Real-time PCR Data Markup Language (RDML) for full details. The provided link contains full MIQE manuscript in addition to step by step check list to report your qPCR experiment properly
Please take into consideration that in genetic and molecular experiments, all related data (e.g. Gel blots photos, Nano drop output files, Primer optimization and efficiency standard curves …etc.) might be required through review procedure. Therefore, it is recommended to keep all these data reachable for any future inquires.
