Conduct and Ethics

Superavit's standards of ethical conduct for publishers, reviewers, and authors are based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) best practice standards for publishers of scientific journals.
Superavit aims to ensure editorial ethics and the quality of articles. Everyone involved in the publishing process (authors, editors, and reviewers) should adopt a standard ethical behavior.
Directors and Board of Review Duties
The directors and the Review Board should evaluate the texts solely on the basis of their scientific merit and decide which texts submitted can be published, respecting their editorial policy. The decision to publish does not take into account the recommendations of the review team of the journal.
Any unpublished material included in a submitted article may not be used by any member of the Review Board and the review team in their own investigations.
Reviewers Duties
Reviewers should evaluate objectively and their comments should be reasoned in a clear way, so that authors can use them to improve the text. The review team advises the directors on the publication or not of the texts submitted.
Any reviewer who considers that he or she does not have adequate knowledge to evaluate the submitted manuscript, or who is not available for prompt review, should inform the journal's management and waive the review process.
Superavit uses the double blind review process. The submitted texts should be treated as confidential documents and should not be shown or discussed with others.
Reviewers should evaluate the texts based on their content and their comments should be respectful, expressing the points of view in a clear and reasoned manner.
Reviewers should identify relevant published papers that have not been cited by the authors and any statement that an observation, source or argument has been previously mentioned should be accompanied by their citation. Reviewers should also alert Superavit's management to any substantial similarity or overlap between the text in question and any other published work of which they are aware in order to prevent plagiarism.
Reviewers should refuse to review texts in which they have a conflict of interest resulting from competition, collaboration or other relationships or links with any of the authors, companies or institutions related to the articles submitted. Any information or ideas obtained through reviews should be kept confidential and not be used for their own benefit.
Regardless of the screening done by the reviewers, Superavit management reserves the right to submit the texts to plagiarism detection software.
Authors Duties
Authors are responsible for the contents of the manuscript.
Authors should ensure that their work is entirely original and has not been previously published in any other language and should be duly referenced when this occurs. An author should not, in general, publish texts that essentially describe the same research in more than one publication. Authors should cite all publications that have influenced the nature of their work and always highlight the contribution of other authors.
The corresponding author must ensure that there is full agreement among all co-authors in the approval of the final version of the document and in its submission for publication. The corresponding author is responsible for keeping coauthors informed about the review process. If the text is accepted, all authors are required to provide a signed statement on how the research work is original.
Whenever an author encounters a relevant error or inaccuracy in an already published text, he should immediately inform Superavit and collaborate to portray or correct the text. If the Superavit has knowledge from a third party that a published work contains a material error, the author should collaborate to portray or correct the text, or provide evidence of the accuracy of the original article.
