4. Ethic Statement

ASTAP promotes the highest standards of professional ethics and values for its members. Norms are established standards of behavior that are expected and maintained by society and / or professional organizations. Values represent the collective vision of what the community find desirable, important and morally correct. Values also serve as criteria for evaluating our own individual actions and actions of others.

The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.
More about Publishing Ethics can be found in the Publishing Ethics Resource Kit (PERK).
