Publication Ethics


All parties who have made a substantive contribution to the article should be listed as authors. Principal authorship, authorship order, and other publication credits should be based on the relative scientific or professional contributions of the individuals involved, regardless of their status. A student is usually listed as principal author on any multiple-authored publication that substantially derives from the student’s dissertation or thesis.


All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an Acknowledgements section. Examples of those who might be acknowledged include a person who provided purely technical help, or a department chair who provided only general support.


The Global Research Review utilize a plagiarism detection tool that compares all submissions against more of published articles and web pages. Authors should appropriately cite all quotations and not heavily lean upon large swaths of content from other publications, including your own publications.

If there is significant overlap with existing sources, the editorial office will evaluate the overlap and contact the authors for clarification or editing if needed.

Authors must comply with any requests from the editorial office regarding the plagiarism detection tool report to proceed with the review process. Significant, verbatim overlap with published sources indicating clear plagiarism will result in immediate rejection.

Use of third-party materials 

Use of the 3rd party material is restricted to the minimum amount necessary to demonstrate the point being made and does not take the ‘heart of’ or ‘essence’ of the original creator’s work. The use does not infringe the original creator’s moral rights.

If you would like to include material sourced from a third party in your work,you should know that is extremely important that you identify the copyright holder and secure permission to use each and every piece of third party content in your paper or presentation that you, yourself, did not create, be it a figures, tables, graphs, photographs or simulations.

Post-Publication Corrections and Comments

All Science Partner Journals are committed to addressing and correcting errors in published papers through the following.

  • Erratum: Errata are issued when errors are discovered that do not affect the core conclusions of a paper but are still needed to correct the record of publication.
  • Editorial Expression of Concern: This is published when an institutional investigation of large-scale error or misconduct is under way regarding a published paper.
  • Retractions: A paper may be retracted if misconduct or errors that significantly change the conclusion of the study are discovered.

Errata, Expressions of Concern, and Retractions are completed at the discretion of the editors. They are published online and linked to the related published article.

Authors or readers that discover an error in a published paper should contact the Global Research Review editorial office at
