Publication Ethics

Publication Ethics Statement: For all parties involved in the publishing process (authors, Editorial Board, and reviewers), it is necessary to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior. RHAPSODE LTD has developed international standards to guarantee high ethical standards for all parties. RHAPSODE LTD expects all the parties to commit to these standards.

International Standards for Authors: RHAPSODE LTD does not require all authors of a research paper to sign a letter of submission, nor does it impose an order on the list of authors. All authors who submit to RHAPSODE LTD are expected to observe the international standards for authors voluntarily. RHAPSODE LTD adheres to International Standards for Authors developed by the Committee on Publication Ethics and encourages all authors to refer to these standards.

  • Authors must certify that their manuscripts are their original work. Plagiarism, Duplicate, Data Fabrication and Falsification, and Redundant Publications are forbidden.
  • Authors must certify that the manuscript has not previously been published and is not currently being considered for publication elsewhere.
  • If the authors have used the work and/or words of others, the authors must ensure that the work and/or words of others are appropriately cited or quoted and identify all sources used in the creation of their manuscripts.
  • When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the Journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
  • Authors must notify RHAPSODE LTD of any conflicts of interest.
  • Authors must ensure the confidentiality and anonymity of the participants while collecting, analyzing, and reporting data.
  • For studies involving human subjects, authors must obtain approval from their institutional ethics committee and confirm that recognized standards, such as the Declaration of Helsinki (see https://www.wma.net/policies-post/wma-declaration-of-helsinki-ethical-principles-for-medical-research-involving-human-subjects/#:~:text=The%20World%20Medical%20Association%20(WMA,identifiable%20human%20material%20and%20data), have been followed to minimize harm to participants. Authors must obtain informed consent from human participants. They must also ensure the information they collect from participants does not contain any identifiable information and mitigate the risk of being able to assign data to specific individuals.
  • Children participating in research have a particular right to protection. Therefore, authors must obtain parental or guardian consent before data collection. They must also gain informed consent of other vulnerable individuals, i.e., the disadvantaged, prisoners, and minorities. 
  • Research ethics policies for studies involving the participation of human subjects (e.g., consent, participant anonymity, etc.) and vulnerable populations (i.e., children – parent/guardian consent) are also expected to be present on the journal website, in line with accepted standard practices in the field.
  • Authors must ensure that all participants in their study have given informed consent for publication.
  • According to the WMA Declaration of Helsinki – Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects, “Some groups and individuals are particularly vulnerable and may have an increased likelihood of being wronged or of incurring additional harm. All vulnerable groups and individuals should receive specifically considered protection”. (see https://www.wma.net/policies-post/wma-declaration-of-helsinki-ethical-principles-for-medical-research-involving-human-subjects/)
  • Accordingly, authors must consider issues arising from working with potentially vulnerable people and must address how such risks to these participants are minimized and how they are protected from risks.

International Standards for Reviewers: Reviewers of RHAPSODE LTD are also expected to meet the international standards for reviewers when they accept review invitations.
