Publication Ethics

With regard to ethical standards, the JATR takes plagiarism very seriously and thoroughly checks all articles. The JATR defines research ethics as securing objectivity and accuracy in the execution of research and the conclusion of results without any unintentional errors resulting from negligence or incorrect knowledge, etc. and without any intentional misconduct such as falsification, plagiarism, etc.

Among the JATR editorial board members, there are associate manuscript editors who support the JATR by dealing with any ethical problems associated with the publication process and give advice on how to handle cases of suspected research and publication misconduct. When the JATR managing editor looks over submitted papers and checks that they are suitable for further processing, the managing editor also routes them to the CrossCheck service provided by iThenticate. Based on the results provided by the CrossCheck service, the JATR associate manuscript editors inform the JATR editor-in-chief of any plagiarism that is detected in a paper. Then, the JATR editor-in-chief communicates such detection to the author(s) while rejecting the paper.
