Journal of Multiscale Neuroscience published by Neural Press operates under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International Licence CC-BY-ND. This allows others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon the work, even commercially, as long as they credit the authors for the original creation. All authors publishing in Journal of Multiscale Neuroscience accept these as the terms of public license, which is nothing more than a permission from the “rights-holder”, or licensor, to another person to use the work in ways described by the license.
This license allows reusers to copy and distribute the material in any medium or format in unadapted form only, and only so long as attribution is given to the creator. The license allows for commercial use.
In respect of the COPE principles, Neural Press exposes the following statements of ethical practice in publishing; a manuscript publication is made only after the ethical review is completed by one or two different reviewers, who evaluated the work scientifically and must consider at least the following aspects:
The avoidance of the risk of plagiarism and respect for intellectual property;
Respect for the rights of human subjects in research;
The identification of and dealing with allegations of research misconduct;
The identification of and dealing with manipulations of citations;
The disclosure of any conflicts of interest;
Withdrawal from the distribution of publications.
For all these reasons and more, it is important to laydown standards of expected ethical behaviour by all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society for society-owned or sponsored journals. This includes all parties treating each other with respect and dignity and without discrimination, harassment, bullying or retaliation. Also the opinion of the Research Ethics Committee is needed – where applicable.
