Manuscripts should only be submitted by the corresponding author. The submitted journal manuscript or monograph, or any translation of it, must neither be published, nor be submitted for publication elsewhere. Violations of these rules will normally result in an immediate rejection of the submission without further review.
When a new submission is received, a couple of checks will be done at the publisher’s office:
Initial check of format and completeness
Initial check for the publication status
Initial check for Plagiarism
Check for machine produced manuscript
Initial check of author’s background
Papers submitted to Heyttu journals and monographs must contain original material. An Initial Plagiarism Check is carried out for every manuscript submitted to Heyttu journals or monographs. We employ Google Scholar, Baidu Xueshu, and CrossCheck to check plagiarism. All its papers will be added to the CrossCheck database.
Data Fabrication and Falsification
The authors of submitted manuscripts or published articles that are found to have fabricated or falsified the results, including the manipulation of images, may incur sanctions, and published articles may be retracted.
Conflicts of Interest
Conflicts of interest (COIs, also known as ‘competing interests’) occur when issues outside research could be reasonably perceived to affect the neutrality or objectivity of the work or its assessment Authors should concern a possible Conflict of Interest. In such a case authors can still take responsibility for the accuracy of their paper, but must inform the reader with an appropriate statement in the Acknowledgements. The Conflicts of Interest covers 1) Financial: funding and other payments, goods and services received or expected by the authors relating to the subject of the work or from an organization with an interest in the outcome of the work, 2) Affiliations: being employed by, on the advisory board for, or a member of an organization with an interest in the outcome of the work, 3) Intellectual property, patents or trademarks owned by someone or their organization, 4) Personal, friends, family, relationships, and other close personal connections, 5) Ideology—beliefs or activism, for example, political or religious, relevant to the work, and 6) Academic—competitors or someone whose work is critiqued. Declarment of conflicts of interest will always be considered by the editor and reviewers and included in the published article. For more information on COIs, see the guidance from the ICMJE and WAME.
