PUBLICATION ETHICS

Jamp, adheres to the standards of publication ethics in health science research, Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), Open Access Scholarly Publishers. It also adopts the ethical publishing principles published by the Association (OASPA) and the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME); The address for the principles expressed under the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing is given below.

-Jamp applies the Publication Ethics Flowcharts developed by COPE when faced with a suspected violation of publication ethics.

-The submitted articles should not have been published elsewhere or have not been sent for publication.

-If the study was included in a symposium as a paper or derived from a thesis, this should be stated on the first page of the study by the authors.

-Each article is double-blinded by one of the editors and at least two referees. Plagiarism, duplication, fraudulent authorship / denied authorship, research/data fabrication, article slicing, slicing publishing, copyright infringement, and concealing conflict of interest are considered unethical behaviour.

-Jamp accepts in principle to comply with the ethical standards of the Declaration of Helsinki. Therefore, for experimental, clinical, and drug research, the name, number, and date of the ethics committee for which the approval of the ethics committee was obtained in the Material and Method section of the manuscript should be specified under a separate title. If necessary, a copy of the ethics committee approval may be requested from the authors by the editor. It is the author’s responsibility to protect the privacy of patients’ identities.

-In human research, a statement of the study’s participants’ informed consent is required in the “Materials and Methods” section. In the case of procedures involving volunteers or patients, it is important to note that the study subjects were informed and gave their consent before the study began. Information on the signed informed patient consent is included in case reports.

-In the case of animal experiments, approval is also required; it should be stated clearly that the participants would be spared as much pain, suffering, and discomfort as possible. In animal experiments, the study should follow the ethical guidelines outlined in the “Guide to the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals“, and the authors should state in the “Materials and Methods” section that ethics committee approval was obtained, as well as the date and number of the ethics committee.

Research Ethics
-The authors are responsible for the compliance of the articles with the ethical rules.
-Ethical standards of the Declaration of Helsinki must be followed in human studies.
-Attention should be paid to ethical principles in designing, reviewing and conducting the research.
-The research team and the participants should be fully informed about the purpose of the research, the participation rules, and, if any, the risks involved.
-Confidentiality of the information and answers given by the research participants should be ensured. Research should be designed in a way that preserves the autonomy and dignity of its participants.
-Participants in the research should take part in the research voluntarily and should not be under any coercion.
-The research should be planned in a way that does not put the participants at risk.
-Be clear about research independence; If there is a conflict of interest, it should be indicated.
-In experimental studies, written informed consent must be obtained from the participants who decide to participate in the research. The legal guardian’s consent must be obtained for children, those under guardianship and those with confirmed mental illness.
-If the study is to be carried out in an institution or organization, the necessary approval should be obtained from this institution or organization.
-In studies with a human element, it should be stated in the “method” section that “informed consent” was obtained from the participants, and the ethics committee approval was obtained from the institution where the study was conducted.

Authors’ Responsibility
-The authors are responsible for the compliance of the articles with scientific and ethical rules. The author should ensure that the article is original, has not been published elsewhere, and is not being reviewed elsewhere, in another language. Copyright laws and treaties in practice must be observed. Corresponding materials (e.g. tables, figures or large quotations) should be used with necessary permissions and acknowledgements. Work or sources of other authors contributors should be appropriately used and cited in references.

-All authors should have a direct contribution in academic and scientific terms in the submitted article; accordingly, the “author” is someone who contributes to the conceptualization and design of published research, obtaining, analyzing or interpreting data, writing the article or reviewing it critically in terms of content. Other conditions for being an author are planning or executing, and/or revising the work in the article.

-Funding, data collection, or general supervision of the research group alone does not provide authorship rights. All individuals designated as authors must meet all the criteria listed, and any individual who meets the above criteria can be shown as an author.

-The name order of the authors should be a joint decision.

-All individuals who do not meet the sufficient criteria for authorship but contributed to the study should be listed in the “thank you” section. Examples are people who only provide technical support, help with writing or just provide general support, financial and material support.

-All authors must declare financial relationships, conflicts of interest and competition of interest that have the potential to affect the results of the research or scientific evaluation. If a writer detects a significant error or inaccuracy in his published manuscript, he/she bears the responsibility to immediately contact and cooperate with the editor for correction or retraction of these inaccuracies.

Editor and Referee Responsibilities
-The editor-in-chief evaluates the articles regardless of the authors’ ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, religious belief, and political philosophy. It ensures that the articles submitted for publication go through a fair double-blind peer review. It guarantees that all information about the submitted articles will remain confidential until the article is published. The editor-in-chief is responsible for the overall quality of the content and publication. It should publish an error page or correct it when necessary.

-Editor in Chief; It does not allow any conflict of interest between authors, editors and referees. It has full authority to appoint a referee and is responsible for finalising the articles to be published in the journal.

-Reviewers should not have conflicts of interest with the authors and/or financial supporters of the research. They should reach an impartial judgment as a result of their evaluation. They must ensure that all information regarding submitted articles is kept confidential and report to the editor if they notice any copyright infringement or plagiarism on the part of the author. In cases where the article’s subject is not his area of ‚Äč‚Äčexpertise or cannot return on time, the referee should inform the editor of this situation and state that he cannot be a referee.

-Referees and editorial board members cannot discuss articles with other people. Care should be taken to keep the identity of the referees anonymous.
