Editors are responsible for the contents and overall quality of the publication. They have complete responsibility and authority to reject/accept an article and should guarantee the quality of the papers and the integrity of the academic record. Editors should only accept a paper when reasonably certain, and should not reverse their decisions nor overturn the ones of previous editors without serious reason. Editors should publish errata pages or make corrections when needed.
Editors should base their decisions solely on the papers' importance, originality, clarity and relevance to publication's scope. Editors should preserve the anonymity of reviewers, and should not allow any conflicts of interest between staff, authors, reviewers and board members.
Editors should have a clear picture of a research's funding sources, and should ensure that all research material they publish conforms to internationally accepted ethical guidelines. Editors should act if they suspect misconduct, whether a paper is published or unpublished, and make all reasonable attempts to persist in obtaining a resolution to the problem, however, editors should not reject papers based on suspicions, they should have proof of misconduct.
