Editor Responsibilities

 | Post date: 2019/11/29 | 
The Iranian Journal of Toxicology is committed to following and applying the “International Standards for Editors” issued by the Committee on Publication Ethics in designing and leading the Journal’s review and publishing processes and in dealing with the associated issues. You may find the International Standards for Editorshere. The journal's editors should carefully review the standard and apply the guidelines to their editorial tasks and procedures completely.
 
The word “editor” is a common terminology used to refer to the Editor-in-Chief of the journal. Content editor or Section Editor is an expert who manages the reviewing processes in a subject-centered section, and is a member of the IJT’s Editorial board. The Editor-in-Chief has full responsibility for all aspects of the editorial and technical decisions. Other editors should not intervene or comment on the editorial decisions made on any manuscript by the respective editor. Editors must give unbiased considerations of the submitted manuscripts. The journal aims for rapid publication; therefore, the editors are advised to process the manuscripts promptly and diligently. 
 
Editors are solely responsible for the final acceptance or rejection of the submissions, after giving full consideration to the feedback received from the assigned reviewers. Any decision made or matters of concern about a submitted article should not be revealed to anyone by the editors. Editors should refrain from using the information, data, theories, or interpretations of any submission in their own work.
 
Best Practice: The best practice for the journal editors includes but not limited to the following:
  • Actively seeking the views of authors, readers, reviewers and the Editorial Board members about ways to improve the journal’s quality.
  • Monitoring the peer-review processes and reassessing the journal’s scope in the light of new information.
  • Supporting initiatives designed to eliminate or reduce misconduct in research and publication.
  • Taking initiatives to enhance the researchers’ awareness on the publication ethics.
  • Assessing the effects of the journal policies on authors and reviewers behavior by timely revising the current policies, as appropriate.
  • Responding promptly to complaints from any author based on the guidelines set out by the COPE flowchart.
