Authors have the responsibility to supply entirely original work, and when the works of others have been used that clear references are made according to the journal's bibliographical style sheet. Plagiarism in any form is unacceptable and it constitutes unethical scholarly behaviour. Submitting the same article to other journals at the same time is also considered unethical publishing behaviour and is also unacceptable. Likewise, authors are expected not to submit articles with similar content based on the same research to other journals. Manuscripts which have been published as copyrighted material elsewhere cannot be submitted. If an article has been written by more than one author, all authors must have full consensus about the final version of the article. This is the responsibility of the corresponding author. All authors of an article must have contributed significantly to the research. Authors are obliged to participate in peer review process. There are no fees or charges for publication, and no royalties or fees are given to authors. Authors retain the copyright to their articles published in the journal. It is the duty of an author to ensure that there are no copyright infringements in his or her article, likewise no libellous material or statements. All authors are obliged to provide retractions or corrections of mistakes after the article has been published. If authors have received financial support for the work, it must be mentioned. If an author objects to the review of his or her manuscript, an appeal can be sent to the editors-in-chief. Since Journal of Somaesthetics is an online journal with website visits as capital, we require that authors refrain from reprinting or redistributing the published articles elsewhere. Authors may use imbedded links on other websites or link to the published article. We operate with an embargo period of 24 months before an article can be redistributed in a local institutional repository.
