Standards and Ethics

In order to assure high-standard publications, publishing revenue has no influence on editorial decisions. Trivent Publishing has no fees for publishing non open access. 

The selection process is based on scientific value which is why the peer review process stands at the core of our publishing process. We hold three key partners in the peer review system accountable for maintaining ethical standards and divide their responsibilities as follows:

The Editor. The duties of the editors include the final decision on publication, fair play, confidentiality, involvement and cooperation in investigations, disclosure, and attention to conflicts of interest.

The Author. Author duties include meeting academic standards, seeking originality, acknowledgement of sources, avoidance of plagiarism, multiple or redundant publication, as well as attention to errors in published works.

The Peer Reviewer. The duties of the reviewers include the contribution to the editorial decision, objectivity, confidentiality, promptness, attention to and checking for plagiarism, disclosure and attention to conflicts of interest.
