Publication Ethics

We at Editage are aware of the increasing pressure that the academic research and publishing community is under today. As a leading provider of editorial and publication support services for the past 18+ years, we have on occasion been witness to potential cases of ethical violation while editing research papers. A majority of these are instances of “accidental plagiarism” where authors unwittingly engage in unethical practices, mainly because of lack of information and professional training on the subject.

As the first people to look at research papers, even before journal editors do, we can serve as trusted advisors to thousands of researchers, especially early-career scientists not fully aware of the pitfalls of unethical academic publication by:

  • Ensuring quality
  • Offering processes for suspected ethical misconduct
  • Providing educational initiatives for editors and authors
