Publication Decisions

PrimEarly's editor is responsible for deciding which articles to submit to journals should be published. The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers should always drive such decisions. Editors may be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and limited by the legal requirements that will apply regarding defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The editor may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

Fair play

Editors at all times evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content regardless of the author's race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, nationality, or political philosophy.


Editors and editorial staff may not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than authors, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisors and appropriate publishers.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest

Unpublished material disclosed in the submitted manuscript may not be used in the editor's own research without the written consent of the author.

Reviewer's Duty

Contribution to Editorial Decisions

Peer reviews assist editors in making editorial decisions and through editorial communication with authors can also assist authors in improving papers.


Selected referees who feel ineligible to review research reported in a manuscript or know that an immediate review is not possible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process.


Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They may not be shown or discussed with others except as permitted by the editor.

Standard of Objectivity

Reviews must be conducted objectively. The author's personal criticism is inappropriate. Referees must express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

Source recognition

The reviewer must identify relevant published works that have not been cited by the author. Each previously reported statement of observation, derivation, or argument must be accompanied by a relevant quote. Reviewers should also call the editor's attention to any similarities or overlaps between the manuscript under consideration and other published papers that they are personally aware of.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest

Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal gain. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have a conflict of interest that results from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any authors, companies, or institutions the paper is associated with.

Reporting Standards

The author of the original research report must present an accurate report of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data must be presented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to allow others to copy the work. Statements that are deceptive or intentionally inaccurate are unethical and unacceptable behavior.

Originality and Plagiarism

Authors must ensure that they have written completely original work, and if the author has used someone else's work and / or words then this has been appropriately quoted or cited.

Multiple, Redundant, or Concurrent Publication

An author should not generally publish manuscripts depicting essentially the same research in more than one journal or major publication. Submitting manuscripts in the same PrimEarly journal to more than one journal at the same time is unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior.

Source recognition

Proper recognition of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that were influential in determining the nature of the work being reported.

Paper Authorship

Writing should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, implementation or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions must be listed as co-authors.
