Publication Ethics

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest

The New English Teacher Journal aims to ensure that best practice and ethical standards are maintained by journal editors, authors and reviewers. NET editors and reviewers are required to assess manuscripts fairly and maintain confidentiality. Authors must ensure that research submitted to NET journals is their own original work and is not under consideration or accepted for publication elsewhere.

Editors and editorial board members/reviewers will not use unpublished information disclosed in a submitted manuscript for their own research purposes without the authors’ explicit written consent.

The Editor

  • The editor must carry unbiased evaluation of a submitted manuscript.
  • The editor must ensure that the manuscript submitted to NET remains confidential while under review.
  • The editor must ensure a timely, rigorous double-blind review procedure.

The Reviewers

  • The reviewers of NET must respect the confidentiality of the manuscript sent to them.
  • The reviewers must not use unpublished information from the manuscript disclosed in the review process in their own work, or for other academic and personal purposes.
  • The reviewers must alert the editor to any suspected malpractice, e.g. falsification and/or fabrication of data, or evidence of published or submitted content that is substantially similar to the manuscript under review.
  • The reviewers must promptly provide fair and constructive feedback on the manuscript on the manuscript to the editor in a timely manner.

The Authors

  • The authors must ensure that the submitted manuscripts are entirely their original works.
  • The authors must be responsible for and recognized only for their own work.
  • The authors must be aware that it is their responsibility to have each version of the manuscript carefully edited and proofread before submission. The final version of the manuscript must be carefully edited and proofread.
