Author's Responsibilities:    

  Authors need to make sure the personal integrity of publication

Journal of Nanoanalysis do not need all authors of a research paper to sign the letter of submission, nor do they impose an order on the list of authors.

The corresponding author is responsible for having to make sure that this agreement has been reached, that all authors have agreed to be so listed and approved the manuscript submission to the journal, and succeed in manage all communication between the journal and all co-authors, before and after publication. Any changes to the author list after submission, such as a change in the order of the authors, or the deletion or addition of authors, needs to be approved by every author.

Authors need to maintain the ethical standards in their articles.

The author list should include all suitable researchers and no others. This journal does not prescribe the kinds of contributions that warrant authorship but convince transparency by publishing author contributions statements.


  Authors need to consider the

  1. Plagiarism/ misconduct (Copying ideas, works and result from others without proper citation)
  2. Submission of data without doing the study/ research
  3. Publishing similar manuscripts based on the same topics
  4. Multiple Submissions (Submission of same manuscript to many journals)

  Authors need to make sure the precision of their paper.

 The author needs to mention the entire contributors list in submitted article.

Editors’ Responsibilities

  • Editor   require   to maintain the integrity of publication

The editors at the J Nanoanalysis presume that the corresponding author and on group collaboration, at least one member of each collaborating group, has accepted responsibility for the substantial contributions to the manuscript from that team. This responsibility includes, but is not limited to: (1) to make sure that main and original data upon which the submission is based is preserved and for reanalysis; (2) approving data presentation as representative of the original data; and (3) monitoring and minimizing obstacles to the sharing of data, materials described in the work.

Editor willing to make a lot of effort for the growth of the journal

  • Publisher will make the author corrections in the accepted articles
  • Publisher will make sure the Editorial standards and peer review processes

Plagiarism and fabrication

Plagiarism is when an author a desperate attempts to pass off someone else's work or idea as his or her own. Replicate publication, sometimes called self-plagiarism, occurs when an author reuses substantial parts of his or her own published work without providing the suitable references. This can range from getting an identical paper published in journals, to 'salami-slicing', where authors add tiny amounts of new data to a previous paper.

Plagiarism can be said to have clearly occurred when huge chunks of text have been cut-and-pasted. Such manuscripts would not be considered for publication in the Journal of Nanoanalysis. But minor plagiarism without corrupt purpose is relatively frequent, for example, when an author replicates parts of an introduction from an earlier paper. The journal of Nanoanalysis's editors judge any case of which they become cognizant.  



Duplicate Publication

Duplicate publication happens when three or more papers, without full cross-referencing, share fundamentally the same theory, data, and conclusions.

When it happens to research misconduct, burying one's head in the sand and pretending it doesn't exist is the worst possible plan Journal of Nanoanalysis will react strongly.
