 XII. GOOD PRACTICE POLICY: research ethics, policy on plagiarism and respect for cultures and heritage.

CALLE14 presents guidelines on good practices for scientific publication as a framework for the development and implementation of its own policies and ethics system in publishing.

The Editors of CALLE14 select the reviewers under guidelines of impartiality and professionalism, so that fair evaluations can be assured, and they guarantee the authors that the appropriate reviewers are selected for reviews of their works, and readers can rely on the peer review process.

The Editors of CALLE14 are aware of the work required for making firm decisions and creating solid publishing processes designed to manage their interests and foster an efficient and sustainable publication system that will benefit academic institutions, publishers, journals, authors, funders of research and readers. Good practices in scientific publishing do not develop spontaneously but are consciously established and actively promoted.

Responsibilities of the authors of the works

All the authors that are reflected in the work must have contributed actively therein. CALLE14 provides the authors with clear instructions explaining the concepts of academic authorship, specifying that the contributions should be distinct. The editors of ESTUDIOS ARTISTICOS ask for a declaration from the authors that they fulfill the criteria of the magazine in relation to the authorship. In case of a conflict in the authorship of a published work, the Editors of ESTUDIOS ARTISTICOS will contact the author who claims its authorship to establish the veracity of the case. If the Editors consider it appropriate, temporary access will be closed to the article in question, until a final decision is made. 

The documents to be published, should not have been published before. CALLE14 will consider only those works that have not been published before in another publishing house and in any format. In this sense, it is considered that the scientific literature can be biased by a redundant publication, with important consequences. CALLE14 asks from the authors a statement that the work submitted, especially in its essential content, has not been published before, and is not being considered for publication in other magazines.

Promote the integrity of research

The Editors of CALLE14 have the right to demand an original work and question the authors about whether opinion articles (e.g., editorials, letters, non-systematic reviews) have been published before.

Research misconduct

If the Editors of CALLE14 suspect misconduct in research carried out on a work (for example, data generation, falsification or plagiarism), they will consult the authors of the work on the procedure developed for the research and they should provide whatever information is requested.

Peer review can sometimes detect evidence of research misconduct, in which case reviewers will raise their doubts and, if confirmed, they will be considered as serious misconduct (e.g., data manufacturing, counterfeiting, manipulation of inappropriate images or plagiarism). However, in any case, the authors have the right to respond to these allegations and to show that the research has been carried out with diligence and speed.

The protection of the rights of research participants / subjects

The Editors of CALLE14 work to create publishing policies that promote ethical practices and responsible research. Guarantees will be sought that the studies have been approved by the relevant agencies. If the research has been done with data obtained from people, the resulting works must be accompanied by a declaration of their consent. The Editors reserve the right to reject the work if there is any doubt as to whether proper procedures have been followed.

Inform readers about research and publication of misconduct

Editors will warn readers if ethical violations have occurred. In these cases, CALLE14 will publish the appropriate corrections when these errors can affect the interpretation of the data and the information, whatever the cause of the error. Similarly, CALLE14 will publish a rectification statement if it has been proven that the work may be fraudulent, or if the Editors have well-founded suspicions that the research was developed under misconduct. In this case, the journal will publish the correction as an errata or a rectification that will include the words "Errata" or "Rectification", which will appear published in a numbered page and in the index of contents of the journal. The rectification will allow the reader to identify and understand the correction in the context of the errors made, or it will explain why the article was corrected, or the Editor's concerns about the content of the article, and it will be linked electronically with the original electronic publication.

Respect for cultures and heritage

The Editors of CALLE14 express their sensitivity when it comes to publishing images of objects that could have cultural significance or involve a crime.
