Ethics in Publishing

Submission of a manuscript for the OEJ implies that the same has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract, a published lecture or academic thesis, a pre-publication institutional output as a working paper or discussion paper); refer to 'Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication' for more information on this aspect. Ensure that the manuscript is not under consideration for publication elsewhere and that its submission is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work has been carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, including electronically without the written consent of the copyright holder. To verify originality, the manuscript may be checked by the originality detection service as Crossref, Similarity Check or any other plagiarism checking software.
