  • Instructions for editors

Editors should strive to improve the quality of the JKPMHN. Editors should provide guidelines about research and publication ethics to researchers as well as information about the submission process and the review system to authors and reviewers. Editors should strive to maintain a fair and blind peer review system by choosing suitable reviewers in their area of research expertise to review manuscripts. To ensure that the peer review system is effective, editors should develop and maintain an up to date database of reviewers. The editor-in-chief should identify eligible editorial board members and provide them with information about the JKPMHN. The editor-in-chief should regularly discuss the publication of the JKPMHN with editorial board members. Editors should keep information about manuscripts, authors, and reviewers confidential. Editors should not use ideas expressed in the manuscript for their own research without the authors’ consent. Editors should evaluate manuscripts objectively and appropriately without any bias or personal interest. Editors are required to be alert to misconduct or ethical issues in manuscripts, and to follow the standards of research and publication ethics. When an editor finds a fundamental error in a published manuscript, he or she should immediately initiate the process of resolution, including an expression of concern, correction, and/or withdrawal of the manuscript, as necessary. The resolution process will be initiated following the flowchart provided by the COPE (http://publicationethics.org/resources/flowcharts).
