The editor of a journal holds a vital position taking important editorial decisions on all peer-reviewed articles submitted for publication.
The editor should maintain the transparency of the academic research and record, preclude professional needs from cooperating with ethical standards, and always be willing to publish retractions, rectifications, and erratum when required.
The editor should assess manuscripts for their scientific quality and intellectual content, free from any biased decisions based on discrimination of race, gender, geographical origin, or religion of the author(s). The editor should evaluate manuscripts objectively based on their academic merit and free of any commercial or self-interests.
The editor should not disclose any information regarding submitted manuscripts before publication of the said manuscript.
Promoting research rectitude must be preserved. If at any stage the publisher suspects any kind of misconduct in research, it should be investigated promptly and in detail with suitable authority. Furthermore if any suspicious act is observed in the peer review, it should be resolved with diligence.
