Ethics and Malpractice Statement

JRTC publication ethics policy is guided by the Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Authors are expected to be aware of, and comply with, best practice in publication ethics specifically with regard to authorship (for example avoidance of ghost or guest authorship), dual submission, plagiarism, manipulation of figures, competing interests and compliance with policies on research ethics. Reviewers and editors are required to treat manuscripts fairly and in confidence, and to declare any competing interests. For more detailed information on ethical issues, please see the COPE website.

In cases of misconduct, conflicts of interest, or malpractice, our response will be guided by the flowcharts provided by COPE. If you have any concerns about potential misconduct, conflicts of interest, or malpractice, please email the journal editors at jrtc@unlv.edu.
