 Ethical Policy

The Journal adheres to the research ethics guidelines of The Korean Society of Clinical Neurophysiology (download).

A submitted manuscript must not be associated with any type of research misconduct, including fabrication, falsification, and plagiarism with intent to deceive by the authors. The cover letter to the Editor-in-Chief must declare that a submitted manuscript has not been published nor is under simultaneous consideration for publication elsewhere in whole or in part in any language except in the form of an abstract. The cover letter must also state if the manuscript contains any portion that may be regarded as redundant or duplicate information, defined as a paper, data, tables, or figures that overlap substantially with already published information. Research involving human subjects must comply with the principles of the Declaration of Helsinki (1964). Articles describing research involving animals must state in the Methods section that the work was approved by the applicable institutional ethics committee or review board. The manuscript must also state that informed consent was obtained from the subjects, when appropriate. The Editor-in-Chief has the right to reject a manuscript if research misconduct is suspected. For the policies on the research and publication ethics not stated in these instructions, ‘Good Publication Practice Guidelines for Medical Journals (http://kamje.or.kr/)’ or ‘Guidelines on good publication (http://publicationethics.org/resources/guidelines)’ can be applied.

The journal adheres to the ethical guidelines for research and publication described by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE, http://publicationethics.org/resources/guidelines) and the ICMJE Guidelines (http://www.icmje.org).

When the journal faces suspected cases of research and publication misconduct–such as redundant (duplicate) publication, plagiarism, fraudulent or fabricated data, changes in authorship, an undisclosed conflict of interest, ethical problems with a submitted manuscript, a reviewer’s appropriation of an author’s idea or data, and complaints against editors–the resolution process will follow the flowchart provided by the Committee on Publication Ethics (http://publicationethics.org/resources/flow-charts). Discussion and decisions on the suspected cases are carried out by the Editorial Board.
