Peer Review

At SalviaPub, we uphold rigorous peer review standards to ensure the quality and integrity of all research articles, review articles, case reports, and case series published in our journals. Here's an overview of our peer review process:

1. Submission, Screening, and Triage
Upon receiving a manuscript submission, our editorial office performs an initial screening to ensure that all necessary files are complete and that metadata are in order. The manuscript may then undergo triage by a senior Editorial Board member. If it's deemed unsuitable for the journal at this stage, it may be rejected. The Editorial Board members responsible for each journal are clearly displayed on the journal's homepage.

2. Editorial Assignment and Assessment
Manuscripts that pass the initial screening are assigned to an Academic Editor with expertise in the subject matter. This assignment is made algorithmically or personally by a senior Editorial Board member. The Academic Editor assesses the manuscript and invites potential reviewers who can provide valuable insights.

3. Reviewer Guidelines
Reviewers are asked to provide a peer-review report summarizing the manuscript, offering constructive analysis, and making recommendations on whether the manuscript should be accepted, reconsidered after major changes, reconsidered after minor changes, or rejected.

4. Making a Decision
Based on the feedback from reviewers, the Academic Editor makes one of the following decisions:

  • Reject: The manuscript is not suitable for publication.

  • Consider after Major Changes: Authors are asked to revise their manuscript substantially based on reviewer feedback.

  • Consider after Minor Changes: Authors are asked to make minor revisions as suggested by reviewers.

  • Publish Unaltered: The manuscript is accepted without significant revisions.

If a manuscript is rejected, authors receive feedback from reviewers, and their work is not considered further for publication in the journal. For manuscripts that require revisions, the Academic Editor ensures that the authors address the reviewers' comments and that the manuscript meets the journal's standards before recommending publication.

5. Final Check
Manuscripts recommended for publication undergo a final check by our editorial office to ensure adherence to journal guidelines and policies. Once this check is complete, authors are notified of their manuscript's acceptance. Other Article Types 'Editorials' are typically written by SalviaPub's Editorial Board Members or Guest Editors and do not usually undergo peer review. 'Letters to the Editor' are reviewed by a member of the editorial board, often the handling editor of the original article, to determine their suitability for publication. 'Errata,' 'corrigenda,' 'retraction notices,' and 'expressions of concern' are written by SalviaPub's editorial staff and typically do not undergo peer review. SalviaPub is committed to maintaining the highest standards of peer review to ensure the credibility and quality of the research we publish.

Article Assessment and Ethical Standards SalviaPub is committed to upholding the highest ethical standards in academic publishing to ensure the quality and integrity of scientific publications. Our policies encompass a range of crucial aspects in research ethics, which authors, reviewers, and editors must adhere to:

1. Peer Review and Manuscript Assessment
All manuscripts submitted to SalviaPub undergo rigorous peer review to meet the standards of academic excellence. Submissions approved by the editor are subjected to anonymous peer review by experts in the field.

2. Plagiarism
Authors must give proper attribution for words, figures, and ideas from other sources. Proper citation is essential, and the reuse of wording must be limited and attributed or quoted in the text. We employ Crossref Similarity Check (iThenticate) to identify potential overlap with published and submitted manuscripts. Plagiarized manuscripts may be rejected, and sanctions may be imposed.

3. Duplicate Submission and Redundant Publication
SalviaPub journals accept only original content that has not been previously published. Manuscripts based on content shared on preprint servers, institutional repositories, or theses are considered, provided proper citation is given. Simultaneous submission to other journals is prohibited and may result in sanctions.

4. Citation Manipulation
If authors include citations in their manuscripts solely to boost the number of citations to their own work or to articles published in a specific journal, they may face penalties. Editors and reviewers are prohibited from requesting authors to include references with the intention of increasing citations to their own work, the journal, or any other journal they are affiliated with.

5. Fabrication and Falsification
Manuscripts found to contain fabricated or falsified results, including image manipulation, may incur sanctions, and published articles may be retracted.

6. Authorship and Acknowledgments
All authors included in the manuscript must have made a substantial scientific contribution, endorsed the claims made in the research, and consented to be listed as an author. It is crucial to acknowledge all individuals who have made significant contributions. We follow the guidelines set by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). The contributions made by each author can be mentioned at the end of the submission, using the roles defined by the Contributor Roles Taxonomy (CRediT). The submitting author must provide their ORCID, and we strongly encourage all authors to do the same. Any changes in authorship must be reported to the journal and agreed upon by all authors. An author can modify their name on a published article as outlined below.

7. Conflicts of Interest
Conflicts of interest, also known as competing interests, can arise when factors outside of the research process could potentially influence the objectivity or impartiality of the work or its evaluation. These conflicts can occur at any stage of the research cycle, from the experimentation phase to the publication of the article. It is important to disclose any potential conflicts of interest or discuss them with the editorial office to maintain transparency and integrity. Failure to declare conflicts of interest may result in sanctions, such as rejection of submissions or reassessment of published articles. While conflicts of interest do not always prevent publication or involvement in the review process, they must be acknowledged to allow others to make informed decisions. If conflicts of interest are discovered after publication, it may be necessary to issue a corrigendum or reevaluate the review process. Examples of conflicts of interest include financial ties, affiliations with organizations related to the subject matter, ownership of intellectual property, personal relationships, ideological beliefs, and academic rivalries. see the guidance from the ICMJE and WAME. Authors must declare all potential conflicts of interest that could affect the neutrality or objectivity of their work. Authors must also disclose any current or recent funding, including article processing charges, as well as any other payments, goods, or services that could potentially influence their work. This information should be included in the "Funding Statement" section. If anyone other than the authors has an interest in the outcome of the work, is affiliated with an organization with such an interest or has been employed or paid by a funder in relation to the work, their involvement must be declared. This includes their involvement in the commissioning, conception, planning, design, conduct, or analysis of the work, as well as the preparation or editing of the manuscript, or the decision to publish. Editors and reviewers should recuse themselves from submissions with which they have conflicts. Undeclared conflicts may result in sanctions. They should decline to be involved with a submission if they have a recent publication or current submission with any of the authors, share or recently shared an affiliation with any of the authors, collaborate or recently collaborated with any of the authors, have a close personal connection to any of the authors, have a financial interest in the subject of the work, or feel unable to be objective. Reviewers must disclose any remaining interests in the confidential section of the review form, which will be considered by the editor. Editors and reviewers must also disclose if they have previously discussed the manuscript with the authors. Sanctions SalviaPub may impose sanctions in cases of ethical violations, including rejection of manuscripts, submission bans, and prohibitions from acting as editors or reviewers. Severe violations may warrant additional sanctions. Investigations Suspected breaches of ethical policies should be reported to our Editorial team. We respect claimant anonymity and take investigations seriously, which may involve consulting editors and institutions, and seeking underlying data. Corrections and Retractions If any errors are found in published articles, the publisher will assess the situation and may consult with the editors and the authors' institutions for guidance. Corrections for errors made by the authors can be made through a corrigendum, while errors made by the publisher can be rectified through an erratum. In cases where the errors significantly impact the conclusions or indicate misconduct, a retraction or expression of concern, following the COPE Retraction Guidelines, may be necessary. All authors will be required to agree with the content of the notice. If an author wishes to change their name after publication, Hindawi will update the article and any citing articles without the need for documentation, a corrigendum notice, or informing other authors. US national laboratory-affiliated authors can request this change through their institution. SalviaPub is committed to maintaining the highest standards of research ethics and integrity, ensuring the credibility and trustworthiness of the research we publish. We encourage all stakeholders to adhere to these ethical standards to uphold the integrity of the scientific community.

3. Data Available on Request
Authors can opt to make their data available upon request through a designated data access committee, institutional review board, or the authors themselves. In such cases, authors should clearly specify who should be contacted to request the data, such as the ethics committee or a designated contact person, and provide relevant contact details. If authors have utilized third-party data that they do not own, proper attribution to the source must be provided along with instructions on how to access the data.

4. Restricted Data Access
In instances where data cannot be made freely available, authors should provide an explanation and details regarding the restrictions on data access. Valid justifications for restricted access may include legal and ethical concerns, such as third-party rights, patient confidentiality, or commercial confidentiality. While SalviaPub encourages authors to share their data, we also acknowledge the significance of adhering to the policies of their institutions and funders, including any data sharing mandates or constraints. If the data are owned by an institution or third party, authors must obtain the necessary permissions for publication and sharing, along with providing appropriate attribution. Authors should also take measures to anonymize data to safeguard privacy when necessary.
Please note that, if requested during the review process, authors must provide datasets to the editor or editorial staff, irrespective of their intention to share them upon publication. Additionally, it's important to mention that SalviaPub is a signatory of the COPDESS Commitment to Enabling FAIR Data in the Earth, Space, and Environmental Sciences. Therefore, for relevant journals, we require authors to deposit the minimum data necessary to support the findings outlined in their manuscript in an appropriate repository
