Publication Ethics

Journal Kata is highly committed to maintain the highest standards of publication ethics and support ethical research practices, referring to Committee of Publication Ethics (COPE). It is strictly against the duplication of publication. Articles submitted to Poetika should not be submitted to other journals elsewhere. Allegations of misconduct will be investigated by the editorial teams. As for the readers, if notified of a potential break of publication ethics, Poetika encourages you to inform the journal editors and staff as soon as possible.

Journal Kata takes publication ethics very seriously, together with that, the editorial teams provide best practice guidelines in the following key areas:

Authorship

Journal Kata expects all published articles to contain clear and accurate attribution of authorship. It is the responsibility of the author to ensure that all authors that contributed to the work receive fair acknowledgment and that the order of authors reflects the individual contributions. Where authors employ the services of third party agencies before submission for instance in language editing or article formatting/preparation, they must ensure that all services comply with the following guidelines:

Attribution and acknowledgment

The authorship must be based on the following 4 criteria:

  1. Giving substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, interpretation of data for the work; and
  2. Drafting the work or revisiting it critically for important intellectual content; and
  3. Giving final approval of the version to be published.
  4. Being accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.

All those designated as authors should meet all four criteria for authorship and all who meet the four criteria should be identified as authors.

The corresponding author is the one individual who takes primary responsibility for communication with the journal during the article submission, peer review, and typically ensures that all the journal's administrative requirements, such as providing details of authorship, ethics committee approval, clinical trial registration, documentation, and gathering. The corresponding author should be available after publication to respond to the critiques of the work and cooperate with any requests from the journal for data or additional information should questions about the paper arise after publication.

When a large multi-author group has conducted the work, the group ideally should decide who will be an author before the work is started and confirm who is an author before submitting the article for publication. Some large multi-author groups designate authorship by a group name, with or without the names of the individuals. When submitting an article authored by a group, the corresponding author should specify the group name if one exists, and identify the group members who can take the credit and responsibility for the work as authors.

Contributors who meet fewer than all 4 of the above criteria for authorship should not be listed as authors, but they should be acknowledged. Examples of the activities that alone (without other contributions) do not qualify a contributor for authorship are the acquisition of funding, general supervision of a research group or general administrative support and writing assistance, technical editing, language editing, and proofreading. Those whose contributions do not justify authorship may be acknowledged individually or together as a group under a single heading (e.g. “clinical investigator”) or specified (e.g. “critically reviewed the study proposal,” “collected data”).

Article Submission

Journal Kata takes every effort to ensure that editors, peer reviewers, and journal administrators treat all the submission respectfully. Poetika expects that all individuals submitting articles to the journal abide by established publishing standards and ethics. In proven cases of misconduct, the action taken will vary, but could result in one or more of the following:

  1. Retraction of published work.
  2. Publication of or a correction or statement of concern.
  3. Refusal of future submission.
  4. Notification of misconduct sent to an author’s local institution, superior, and/or ethics committee.
  • Redundant publication

Journal Kata evaluates submissions on the understanding that they have not been previously published in or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. The editors will keep a clear record of all communications between authors, editors, and peer reviewers regarding the submissions they handle. These records are carefully stored and may be used to facilitate investigations into possible cases of misconduct.

  • Plagiarism

Journal Kata evaluates submission on the understanding that they are the original work of the author(s). We expect that the references made in the article to another person's work or idea will be credited appropriately. Re-use of text, data, figures, or images without appropriate acknowledgment or permission is considered plagiarism, as is the paraphrasing of text, concepts, and ideas.

  • Defamation

Whilst striving to promote freedom of expression wherever possible, Poetika aims to avoid publishing anything that harms the reputation of an individual, business, group, or organization unless it can be proven to be true. We take all possible measures to ensure that published work is free of any text that is, or may be considered to be libelous, slanderous, or defamatory.

Fair Editing and Peer Review

All participants in the publishing process are encouraged to adhere to established principles of ethical publishing. This extends from authors to journal editors, reviewers, journal administrators, and publishing staff.

1. Editorial independence

Editors have full editorial independence. They need to have clearly defined processes and policies for the handling of contributions by the editor or members of the editorial board to ensure that, where appropriate, these submissions receive an equivalent level of peer review to any other submission.

2. Peer reviewers conduct

Articles are reviewed by two independent experts in the relevant area. The reviewers make a scientific assessment and a recommendation to the editors. Reviewers remain unknown to authors. The Handling editor considers the manuscript and the reviewers’ comments before making a final decision either to accept, accept with revision or to reject a manuscript.

3. Confidentiality

Unless otherwise specified, Poetika expects editors and reviewers to handle all submissions as confidential. If a reviewer wishes to delegate the review or seek the opinion of a colleague on a specific aspect of the paper, they are expected to clear this with the editor in the first instance.

4. Peer-review fraud

It is the responsibility of the lead author to ensure that only genuine reviewers and reviewer contact details are put forward. Any suspected or alleged instances of authors submitting fabricated reviewer details will be thoroughly investigated. If such allegations are proven, the article in question will be immediately rejected or, if already published, retracted. The journal would typically notify the authors’ institutional or local ethics council and may also impose a ban on further submissions from the author group.
