Today and its Editorial team strive to adhere to
the COPE code of conduct and best practice
guidelines for journal editors.
Today’s reviewers should
adhere to the COPE Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers
and objectively review manuscripts, declining to review those
papers in which they have conflicts of interest, respecting the
confidentiality of material supplied to them, and not
discussing unpublished manuscripts with colleagues or using the
information from unpublished manuscripts in their own work.
Today strongly advises their authors to strictly
follow the procedures and guidelines of COPE on good publishing
practice. Any fabrication of data, plagiarism, self-plagiarism
(duplicate publication of author’s own work without proper
citation), misappropriation of the works of others, omission of
information concerning financial support, redundant publication
(except for abstracts and poster presentations at conferences),
or any such examples of unethical publishing behaviour are
considered highly unacceptable.
Should any author disregard the above recommendations,
Today reserves the right to reject, withdraw, or
retract the paper (in line with the COPE guidelines on retraction).
