Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statements
Journal of Geovisualization and Spatial Analysis (JGSA) is dedicated to following best practices on ethical matters, errors, and retractions. The prevention of publication malpractice is one of the important responsibilities of the editorial board. Any kind of unethical behavior is not acceptable and the editorial board does not tolerate plagiarism in any form. Authors submitting articles to JGSA affirm that manuscript content is original.
The editors of JGSA evaluate submitted manuscripts exclusively on the basis of academic merit (importance, originality, study’s validity, clarity) and relevance to the journal’s scope, and without regard to the authors’ race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, citizenship, religious belief, political philosophy or institutional affiliation. Decisions to edit and publish are not determined by the policies of governments or any other agencies outside of the journal itself. The Editor-in-Chief has full authority over the entire editorial content of the journal and the timing of the publication of that content.
Editors, authors, and reviewers will also adhere to the JGSA submission guideline policies:
