4. Citations and references

The author who is found to contain quotations whose main purpose is to increase the number of quotes in the author's work given to the submitted manuscript or articles published in a particular academic journal, may be subject to sanctions. Editors and reviewers should not require authors to include references merely to increase quotations for the works, journals, or other journals they relate to themselves or officials.

The author shall cite and refer to publications and ideas by other people or entities as footnotes, and thus inform the reader of the fact that they are part of the existing literature and what the author's original thoughts, opinions and interpretations are.


5. Corrections and retractions

The author should accept the opinions of the editor and reviewer and revise the articles accordingly. If the authors disagree with the reviewed comments, they shall notify the editorial committee of the grounds.

If errors are identified in the published article, the publisher may consider what action is required and consult the editor and author's institution.

If there are errors that significantly affect the conclusion or evidence of misconduct, it may be necessary to withdraw it.

6. Fabrication and falsification

If it is confirmed that the author of the submitted manuscript or published article has fabricated or fabricated images, data, experimental results, etc., sanctions may be imposed, and the published article may be withdrawn in accordance with the KSCG regulations.

7. Conflicts of interest(COI)

Conflict of interest (COI) occurs when problems outside research can be reasonably perceived as affecting the neutrality or objectivity of the work or evaluation. It can occur at any stage, such as during the writing of a manuscript or in the process of converting a manuscript into a published article. In order to allow informed decisions, a conflict of interest must be declared. In most cases, the declaration will not stop a work from being published, nor will it always stop someone from getting involved in the review process.

If you are not sure, you should declare your potential interest or consult with the editorial office. Unveiled interests may be subject to sanctions, and submissions of undisclosed conflicts, which will be disclosed later, may be rejected. Published papers may be reevaluated or withdrawn in serious cases.

If a conflict of interest is found after publication, it may be necessary to reassess the review process.

The above-mentioned 'conflicts' is described below.

  1. Financial  - An organization interested in the outcome of a work, goods and services, or other payments received or anticipated by the author in relation to the subject matter of the work.

  2. Affiliation  - employed by members of an organization who are interested in the outcome of the work, by an advisory committee or by members of an organization
