Information Research Ethics Policy

The International Academic Research Consortium is dedicated to upholding the highest standards of research ethics. Our research ethics policy serves to ensure the integrity, credibility, and ethical conduct of research published in our journal. Below, we outline the key components of our research ethics policy:

 

Ethical Oversight:

  • Research involving human subjects, animals, or sensitive data must receive appropriate ethical approval from institutional review boards (IRBs), ethics committees, or relevant regulatory bodies.
  •  
  • Authors are required to provide documentation of ethical approval or exemption from ethical review when submitting manuscripts reporting research involving human or animal subjects.

 

Informed Consent:

  • Authors must obtain informed consent from human participants involved in research studies, including consent for participation, data collection, and publication of findings.
  • Informed consent procedures should be clearly described in the manuscript, detailing how consent was obtained, who obtained it, and any measures taken to protect participants' confidentiality and privacy.

 

Protection of Human Subjects:

  • Authors must ensure the welfare, rights, and dignity of human subjects participating in research studies.
  • Research involving vulnerable populations, such as children, prisoners, or individuals with diminished capacity, requires special consideration and safeguards to protect participants' interests.

 

Care and Use of Animals:

Research involving animals must adhere to established ethical guidelines and regulations for the care and use of animals in research. https://www.forskningsetikk.no/en/guidelines/science-and-technology/ethical-guidelines-for-the-use-of-animals-in-research/

Authors are required to provide documentation of compliance with animal welfare regulations, including details of housing, husbandry, anesthesia, analgesia, and euthanasia practices.

 

Data Integrity and Management:

  • Authors are responsible for the accuracy, integrity, and reproducibility of the data presented in their manuscripts.
  • Data should be collected, recorded, and analyzed with transparency and rigor, following best practices in research methodology and statistical analysis.
  • Authors should retain original data and research materials for a reasonable period and make them available upon request for verification and replication purposes.

 

Authorship and Contributorship:

  • Authorship credit should be based on substantial contributions to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the research.
  • All individuals who have made significant contributions to the research should be listed as authors, while others who have contributed in a meaningful but less substantial way should be acknowledged appropriately.

 

Conflict of Interest Disclosure:

  • Authors, reviewers, and editors are required to disclose any potential conflicts of interest that could bias their judgment or compromise the integrity of the research or publication.

 

  • Conflicts of interest may include financial relationships, personal connections, or competing professional interests that could influence the research process or outcomes.

 

 

Reporting Guidelines:

  • Authors should adhere to relevant reporting guidelines and standards for the specific study design or methodology used in their research.
  • Adherence to reporting guidelines, such as CONSORT for randomized controlled trials or STROBE for observational studies, enhances the transparency, completeness, and reproducibility of research findings.

 

Transparency and Reproducibility:

  • Authors should provide sufficient details and documentation to allow others to reproduce their findings.
  • Transparent reporting of methods, materials, data, and results facilitates scrutiny, verification, and replication of research outcomes, contributing to the credibility and trustworthiness of scientific research.

 

The International Academic Research Consortium is committed to promoting research integrity, ethical conduct, and responsible publishing practices. Our research ethics policy emphasizes the importance of ethical oversight, informed consent, data integrity, authorship integrity, conflict of interest disclosure, and transparent reporting. By upholding these ethical standards, we aim to foster trust, accountability, and credibility in the research published in our journal and contribute to the advancement of knowledge in applied medical sciences.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Authorship and Contributorship-

At the International Academic Research Consortium, we recognize the importance of authorship and contributorship in scholarly publishing. Our authorship and contributorship policy aims to ensure fairness, transparency, and accountability in attributing credit for scholarly work. Below, we outline the key components of our authorship and contributorship policy:

 

Authorship Criteria:

Authorship credit is based on substantial contributions to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the research.

 

Individuals who meet the criteria for authorship should be listed as authors on the manuscript.

 

Common authorship criteria include:

  • Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the study.
  • Acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data.
  • Drafting or revising the manuscript critically for intellectual content.
  • Final approval of the version to be published.
  • All authors should meet the criteria for authorship and actively contribute to the research, writing, or revision of the manuscript.

 

   In addition to authors, individuals who have made significant contributions to the research but do not meet the criteria for authorship should be acknowledged appropriately.

 

Contributorship roles may include:

  • Providing technical or administrative support.
  • Assisting with data collection, analysis, or interpretation.
  • Providing funding or other resources for the research.
  • Offering intellectual input or guidance that does not meet the criteria for authorship.
  • Contributors should be acknowledged in the manuscript's acknowledgments section, clearly stating their role or contribution to the research.

 

Authorship Order:

  • Authorship order should reflect the relative contributions of each author to the research.
  • Authors should discuss and agree on the order of authorship based on their respective contributions.
  •  Common conventions for authorship order include listing authors in descending order of contribution, with the first author typically being the individual who made the most significant contributions to the research.

 

Corresponding Author:*

  • The corresponding author is responsible for communicating with the journal during the submission, review, and publication process.
  • The corresponding author should ensure that all co-authors have reviewed and approved the manuscript before submission.
  • Contact information for the corresponding author, including email address and affiliation, should be provided in the manuscript for communication purposes.

 

Authorship Disputes:

  • Authorship disputes should be resolved transparently and in accordance with established guidelines.
  • Authors should discuss and attempt to resolve authorship disagreements among themselves first.
  • If disputes cannot be resolved internally, the journal may request documentation of contributions from each author or seek input from institutional authorities or ethics committees.

 

Changes to Authorship:

Any changes to the list of authors or authorship order after manuscript submission should be communicated to the journal promptly by correction@iarcon.org

 

Changes to authorship require the consent of all affected parties and may be subject to editorial review and approval.
