At the international level, there are two important publication guidelines. In its White Paper on the Promotion of Integrity in Scientific Journal Publications, the Council of Scientific Editors (CSE) examines various issues relating to the ethics of publication. The Vancouver Licensing Rules (official name: Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals, edited by the International Committee of Medical Journal Publishers, ICMJE) are the leading international standards for publishing ethics. The ICMJE says today that a study is only envisaged for publication if it was registered before the first patient was enrolled. If a large multi-author group has made the work, the group should ideally decide who will be the author before the work begins, and confirm who is an author before submitting the manuscript for publication. All members of the group who have been designated as authors should meet the four paternity criteria, including the approval of the final manuscript, and be able to assume public responsibility for the work and have full confidence in the accuracy and integrity of the work of other group authors. They are also supposed to fill out disclosure forms as individuals. Lately, the author`s principle has sparked some very interesting discussions in our community. In the face of the increasing use of preprint servers, we have questioned the workflows of conference publishing .A. These were most often related to peer-review biases, but also to the author: should we allow blind pre-print publications? I see — for questions about the process of reading the camera, please contact the publishing chairs under email@example.com. From 1 January 2015, a new policy on data from clinical trials will come into force in Europe: “European Medicines Agency policy on the publication of clinical data for medicines for human use.” “All authors are responsible for the content of the publication. However, each author`s responsibility should be assessed subject to their individual role in the research, taking into account their expertise, experience and seniority, a possible supervisory function and other relevant factors.
Therefore, in some cases, an author may assume greater responsibility than others to ensure the integrity of the publication or certain parts of the publication. A similar idea is found in the argument for data capture in databases after publication. The international Mouse Strain Resource is an example. There are many positive strategies in this area of magazines such as Science and Heredity, national authorities such as the US NAS and the NIH and the UK MRC. For example, data from NIH-financied gene association studies on dbGaP will be published. And the NSF promotes Dryad – an international repository of data that undersints peer review articles in the basic and applied sciences of life.
