Author Information

An "author" is generally considered to be someone who has made substantive intellectual contributions to a published study. An author must take responsibility for at least one component of the work, should be able to identify who is responsible for each other component, and should ideally be confident in their co-authors' ability and integrity.

NobleResearch Publishers can help you choose the most suitable journal for your article. You can find the journals we publish online. Visit the individual journal web pages and read the Aims & Scope to find out about the type of papers that the journal accepts. We strongly encourage journal authors to check the "Author Information".

General Information for Authors

Ethical Guidelines

All authors must warrant that their article is their own original work, which does not infringe the intellectual property rights of any other person or entity, and cannot be construed as plagiarizing any other published work, including their own previously published work.

NobleResearch Publishers follows the Committee of Publications Ethics (COPE). COPE aims to provide a forum for publishers and editors of scientific journals to discuss issues relating to the integrity of their work, including conflicts of interest, falsification and fabrication of data, plagiarism, unethical experimentation, inadequate subject consent, and authorship disputes.

For more information on COPE please visit http://publicationethics.org.

Authorship

Authorship confers credit and has important academic, social, and financial implications. Authorship also implies responsibility and accountability for published work. The following recommendations are intended to ensure that contributors who have made substantive intellectual contributions to a paper are given credit as authors, but also that contributors credited as authors understand their role in taking responsibility and being accountable for what is published.

The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) recommends that authorship be based on the following 4 criteria:

  • Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data for the work; and
  • Drafting the work or revising it critically for important intellectual content; and
  • Final approval of the version to be published; and
  • Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.

Conflict of Interest

Articles should be published with statements or supporting documents, such as the ICMJE conflict of interest form, declaring:

  • Authors’ conflicts of interest; and
  • Sources of support for the work, including sponsor names along with explanations of the role of those sources if any in study design; collection, analysis, and interpretation of data; writing of the report; the decision to submit the report for publication; or a statement declaring that the supporting source had no such involvement; and
  • Whether the authors had access to the study data, with an explanation of the nature and extent of access, including whether access is on-going.

Copyright on any open access article in a journal published by NobleResearch Publishers is retained by the author(s).

The Creative Commons Attribution License 4.0 formalizes these and other terms and conditions of publishing articles. In accordance with our Open Data policy, the Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Public Domain Dedication waiver applies to all published data in NobleResearch Publishers open access articles.

Organization and style of the manuscript

Articles should be divided into the following sections: Title page, Abstract/ Summary, Introduction, Results and Discussion, Materials and Methods (Methodology, Patients and methods, Subjects and methods, Experimental), Acknowledgements, Funding, References, Tables and Figure legends.

Title page

Concise titles are easier to read than long, convoluted ones. Titles that are too short may, however, lack important information, such as study design (which is particularly important in identifying randomized, controlled trials). Authors should include all information in the title that will make electronic retrieval of the article both sensitive and specific.

  • Authors names and institutional affiliations, the name of the department(s) and institution(s) to which the work should be attributed.
  • The name of corresponding author, complete postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and email address of the author, responsible for correspondence of the manuscript.

Abstract and key words

The purpose of the abstract is twofold: (a) state the nature of the investigation and (b) summarize the important conclusions of this investigation. It should provide a brief summary of the research, including the purpose, methods, results, and major conclusions. The abstract should be suitable for separate publication in an abstract journal and be adequate for indexing.

  • Abstract should be in a single paragraph and not exceed 250 words.
  • Do not include literature citations in the abstract.
  • The primary purpose of an abstract is to allow readers to determine quickly and easily the content and results of a paper.
  • Provide up to 12 key words. Words from the title of the article may be included in the key words.
  • Each key word should be useful as an entry point for a literature search.

Introduction: A brief introduction describing the manuscript significance should be intelligible to the general reader of the journal. The introduction should state the reason for doing the research work or hypotheses under consideration and essential background. The introduction is not a place for a lengthy review of the topic.

Materials and methods: It should provide sufficient information to allow someone to repeat your research work. A clear description of your experimental design, sampling methods, and statistical methods is especially important. If you list a product (e.g., glucose, amino acid analyzer), supply the name and location of the manufacturer, give the model number for equipment specified, supply complete citations, including author (or editor), title, year, publisher and version number.

Results and discussion:Results generally should be stated concisely and without interpretation, though in complex studies modest interpretation of individual parts can provide context helpful for understanding subsequent parts. The discussion should explain the significance of the results. Distinguish factual results from speculation and interpretation. Avoid excessive review.

Conclusions: Conclusions section is mandatory for the JCRT. This should state clearly the main conclusions of the research and give a clear explanation of their importance and relevance.

Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments should be limited to collegial and financial assistance, such as a person who provided purely technical help, writing assistance, or a department chair who provided only general support should be listed in the acknowledgments.

Funding

Details of all funding agency names should be given in a separate section entitled 'Funding', i.e. 'National Institutes of Health funded' or not 'NIH'. Grant numbers should be given in square brackets as follows: [grant number xxxx]. Multiple grant numbers should be separated by a comma as follows: [grant numbers xxxx, yyyy]. If more than one agencies, they should be separated by a semi-colon (include 'and' before the last funding agency). Where individuals need to be specified for certain sources of funding, please add 'to initials' after the relevant agency or grant number e.g. This work was supported by the National Institutes of Health [xx456789 to C.S., yy123765 to M.H.].

References

Reference entries should be numbered consecutively in the text with the use of bracketed numerals and listed in the same order at the end of the paper. Sources should be properly referenced, indicating the author(s) name, initials, the title of the source article, journal or book, volume and issue, year of source publication, initial page number to end page number.

Peer-Review Process

Peer-review is commonly accepted as an essential part of scientific publication. We appreciate the time that referees devote to assessing the manuscripts we send them, which helps to ensure that NobleResearch Group journals publish only material of the highest quality. Peer reviewers are asked to give their opinion on a number of issues pertinent to the scientific and formal aspects of a paper, and to judge the papers on grounds of originality and urgency. All relevant information will be forwarded to the author (s). There are several types of decision possible for each article.

  • Accept manuscript without revision
  • Accept after minor or major revision
  • Submit elsewhere, if the manuscript is better suited for another journal in our group
  • Reject manuscript, if the manuscript is substandard

In addition, papers may be rejected directly by the Chief Editor if judged to be out of scope or if scientifically or formally sub-standard. When asking for revisions, reviewers have two possible goals: to ask authors to tighten their arguments based on existing data, or to identify areas where more data are needed. Even formal revision may be required if the language or formalities is sub-standard. To facilitate rapid publication, authors are given a maximum of two months for revision. After two months, revised manuscripts will be considered as new submissions.
