Ethical Guidelines for Bioinfo Journals
The publication of manuscript in a peer-reviewed Bioinfo journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the organization or institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed manuscripts support and embody the scientific methodology. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher.
An important role of the Bioinfo Publications is to support the extensive efforts of journal editors and the often unsung volunteer work undertaken by peer reviewers in maintaining the integrity of the scholarly record. It is a tribute to scholarly practice that the system works well and problems are comparatively rare.
Bioinfo Publications supporting, investing and nurturing role in the scholarly communication process is also ultimately responsible for ensuring that best practices are followed for articles publications.
Bioinfo Publications takes its duties of guardianship over the scholarly record very seriously. We recognize our responsibilities as the keeper of all activity, in all our policies, including the guidelines we have adopted to support associate editors, reviewers and authors in performing their ethical duties.
Bioinfo Publications is working closely with all authors to set standards for best practices on ethical matters, errors and retractions--and are prepared to provide specialized legal review and counsel if necessary.
