Publication ethics

RIMCIS is committed to meeting high standards of ethical conduct at all stages of the publication process. In our ethical standards and procedures, we set out general expectations for authors, editors, reviewers, publishers and society partners. RIMCIS guarantees at all times the confidentiality of the evaluation process: the anonymity of the reviewers and the authors, the content evaluated, the rationale report issued by the reviewers and any other communication issued by the editorial and advisory boards.

Also the confidentiality will be maintained before any clarifications or complaints that an author wishes to send to the committees of the journal or to the evaluators of the article.

RIMCIS declares its commitment for the respect and integrity of the works already published. For this reason, plagiarism is strictly prohibited in RIMCIS and texts that are identified as plagiarism or its content are fraudulent will be removed from the journal if they have already been published or will not be published. Hipatia Press and RIMCIS editors will act, in these cases, as quickly as possible. By accepting the terms and agreements expressed by RIMCIS, authors must ensure that the article or review and the materials associated with them are original or do not infringe copyright. The authors also have to justify that, in case of a shared authorship, there was a full consensus of all the authors affected and that the article or book review has not been previously presented or published in other journals.

In the event that RIMCIS editors are made aware of any allegation of research misconduct, these allegations would be treated accordingly. RIMCIS editors will be willing to publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies whenever needed.
