Ethical Guidelines

A misuse of another person’s intellectual property is plagiarism. Authors must follow the highest ethical standards when writing their articles. They are expected to correctly reference each quote and idea from someone else’s work and to list all references used according to the Guidelines for Authors. Plagiarism is not limited to text – it also includes images, figures, tables, graphs, etc. that are used in the article without a proper permission of the author(s) from which a particular item is taken. Authors should also avoid self-plagiarism, that is, recycling their previously-published works without properly citing all such parts.

Therefore, authors should warrant to RAD Association that no part of the Article is copied from any other work, that they have obtained all the required permissions and that they have exercised reasonable care to ensure that the article is accurate and does not contain anything which is libellous, or obscene, or infringes on anyone’s copyright, right of privacy, or other rights.

Originality and Primary Publication

Authors must guarantee that the article is their original work, that it has not been previously published in any form (printed or electronic) and that the article is not currently under consideration by some other journal/proceedings. The article will be immediately withdrawn if it has already been submitted to other journals/proceedings.

Also, authors must guarantee that RAD Association will be the first publisher of the article and that they will not submit the article for publication to any other journal/proceedings following acceptance in a publication of RAD Association

A paper is not acceptable for the submission to the “Radiation and Applications” Journal if it, or its substance, has been made publicly available in the following:

· a serial, periodical, or book;
· a conference report or symposium proceedings;
· a technical bulletin or company white paper;
· a public website; or
· any other retrievable source.

The following does not preclude submission to, or publication by, the “Radiation and Applications” Journal:

· posting of a method/protocol on a public website;
· posting of a limited amount of original data on a personal/university/corporate website or websites of small collaborative groups working on a problem;
· deposit of unpublished sequence data in a public database;
· preliminary disclosures of research findings as meeting posters, webcast as meeting presentations, or published in abstract form as adjuncts to a meeting, e.g., part of a program;
· posting of theses and dissertations on a personal/university-hosted website.

Reference Marking and Citation

Author Guidelines for Reference Marking and Citation can be downloaded here.

The reference list should not be alphabetically ordered, but it should match the order in which the references appear in the open text. Reference numbers are in square brackets. Font: Georgia, 8 pt. For reference sources in languages other than English, please refer to the end of this description, to the section entitled General Remarks.

Note:Use “et al.” when six or more names are given.
