Please read the following policies about Article Sharing, Article Withdrawal, Article Retraction, Article Removal, and Article Replacement.

Article sharing
When a paper is published, it will be shared on several platforms that are the most important ones and help the author get more citations, audience, visibility, and reputation, thus promoting the author in his professional career. The following ways will also help the author(s) to promote their work after publication. The author(s) may:

  • consider search engine optimization and keywords to help readers discover your article.
  • share the paper on the press and social media. A sharing option is available on every page of published articles.
  • share the article on a personal website or blog.
  • share the article on any indexing database or institutional repository. 

Withdrawal, retraction, removal, or replacement of a published article
JVPP understands the importance of completeness of the scholarly record for researchers and librarians and gives the highest importance to maintaining trust in the authority of its electronic archive. Occasionally, it is necessary to withdraw, retract, remove or replace a published article. Such cases are not taken very lightly. JVPP follows some strict specific rules and policies mentioned below:

Article withdrawal

In the event, an author(s) requests a withdrawal at any stage of submission time, during the peer review process, and before the acceptance, and after acceptance, it will be evaluated as either a retraction or correction and processed as specified above. In case the APC is paid but the authors demand the withdrawal of articles in Press (those that have been accepted for publication but which have not been formally published and will not yet have the complete volume/issue/page information), the manuscript may be withdrawn from our database but the publication fee will not be refunded. The withdrawal requests because of simultaneous submissions to other journals especially when the article is under a peer-review process, will not be accepted. After the peer-reviewing step, the editor processes the withdrawal after investigating the matter. In case of multiple submissions, bogus claims of authorship, duplication, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, or the like that are determined to violate Rovedar publishing ethics guidelines, the article may also be withdrawn from our database. It means that the article content (HTML, XML, and PDF) is removed and replaced with a statement (the article has been withdrawn according to the Rovedar policy on Article in Press Withdrawal) with a link to the current policy document.

decisions regarding actions like retractions, corrections, or withdrawals, which are not specifically covered in the provided policy, will be made based on the COPE Retraction Guideline.

Article retraction
In case of infringements of professional, and ethical codes, such as multiple submissions, bogus claims of authorship, duplication, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, or the like that are determined to violate JVPP publishing ethics guidelines, a retraction will be used to correct errors in submission or publication. JVPP will consider retracting a publication if:

  • It has clear evidence that the findings are unreliable, either as a result of misconduct (e.g. data fabrication) or honest error (e.g. miscalculation or experimental error);
  • The findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper crossreferencing, permission, or justification (i.e. cases of redundant publication);
  • It constitutes plagiarism;
  • It reports unethical research.

The following standards for dealing with retractions are adopted based on a number of libraries and scholarly bodies and COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors:

  • A retraction note signed by both authors and Editor is published in the specific part of a subsequent issue of the Journal and listed in the contents list;
  • A link is made to the original published article to help the reader see both the retraction note and the article itself;
  • A titled “retracted” watermark on the .pdf is added on each page without any change to the original article;
  • The HTML, XML, and ePrint version of the document is removed.

A notice of retraction will be posted on the journal page link to the manuscript and on the manuscript itself.

Article removal (because of legal limitations)
In a limited number of cases, it may be necessary to remove an article from the online database so that the “Title and Authors” will be retained, and only the text will be replaced with a screen indicating the article has been removed for legal reasons. This will only occur where the article is clearly defamatory or infringes others’ legal rights, or where the article is, or we have good reason to expect it will be, the subject of a court order, or where the article if acted upon, might pose a serious health risk.

Article replacement
In case, where an article might pose a serious health risk, the author(s) can replace the article(s) with a correct version. In this case, we will post a notice with a link to the corrected re-published article (plus a history of the document if necessary).


Editorial Board

The Editorial Board consists of a group of experts within the journal's field. Members of the Editorial Board have various responsibilities, including reviewing submitted manuscripts, offering guidance on journal policies and scope, proposing topics for special issues that they might also guest edit, attracting new authors, and promoting the journal to their peers. They also assist editors in decision-making processes, especially in cases involving plagiarism claims or disagreements among reviewers.

The selection of Editorial Board members is a careful process undertaken by the journal's editor(s) with input from the publisher. Typically, Editorial Boards are reviewed every two or three years, during which new members might be added, existing members might continue for another term, or some members might step down. Changes can also happen in between these periods, for instance, if a member resigns.

The Editorial Board significantly influences a journal's quality. Editors should consider several factors, including the geographical representation of Board members to reflect the journal's reach, ensuring that members' expertise aligns with the journal's scope, appointing representatives from prominent research institutes, considering individuals who have served as guest editors for special issues, authored key reviews, or excelled as top reviewers. Existing Board members can also provide valuable recommendations for potential new members.

Editors affiliated with JVPP journal who are also serving on the editorial boards of other journals sharing similar goals and scope are expected to adhere to JVPP’s policies while they are involved in editorial responsibilities at JVPP journals. For such editors, it is important to declare any potential conflict of interest transparently.  If at any stage of the journal’s peer review process, it becomes apparent that a submitted article is under consideration in a journal where our editor also serves, the JVPP journal immediately reassigns the article to another editor. Similarly, if such a situation involves the editor-in-chief, and the editor-in-chief collaborates with another journal, the responsibility for handling that article is delegated to the second editor-in-chief/associate editor-in-chief/handling editor/managing editor. In case of a conflict of interest between the editor-in-chief and any of the mentioned roles, the article will be handled by one of the editorial board members.


Peer review policy

The practice of peer review is to ensure that only good science is published. It is an objective process at the heart of good scholarly publishing and is carried out by all reputable scientific journals. Our reviewers play a vital role in maintaining the high standards of Review Policy and all manuscripts are peer-reviewed following the procedure outlined below.

Initial manuscript evaluation
The Editor first evaluates all manuscripts. Manuscripts rejected at this stage are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, have poor grammar or English language, or are outside the aims and scope of the Journal. Those that meet the minimum criteria are normally passed on to at least three experts for review.

Type of Peer Review
JVPP employs a single-blind reviewing policy, where both the reviewer and author remain anonymous throughout the process.

Selection of the reviewer
Whenever possible, reviewers are matched to the paper according to their expertise and our database is constantly being updated.

Reviewer reports
Reviewers are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript: - Is original - Is methodologically sound - Follows appropriate ethical guidelines - Has results that are clearly presented and support the conclusions - and correctly cites previous relevant work.

Language correction 
Language correction is not part of the peer-review process, but reviewers may, if so wish, suggest corrections to the manuscript.

How long does the review process take?
The time required for the review process depends on the reviewers' responses. Should the reviewers' reports contradict one another or a report is unnecessarily delayed, a further expert opinion will be sought. The Editor’s decision will be sent to the author with recommendations made by the reviewers, which usually include verbatim comments by the reviewers. Revised manuscripts might be returned to the initial reviewers who may request another manuscript revision.

Final report
A final decision to accept or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author along with any recommendations made by the reviewers and may include verbatim comments by the reviewers.

Final decision
The recommendations are sent to the Editor(s)-in-Chief, along with a review from the assigned Editorial Board Members. The Editor(s)-in-Chief makes a decision on the manuscript, for which there are three options: accept, require revision, or reject.

The use of AI in the peer-review process

Although some journals use generative AI to identify potential peer reviewers for manuscripts, editors should be responsible for choosing reviewers and actively supervise this process. While AI can aid in suggesting reviewers and streamlining the process, entirely replacing human editorial judgment with AI is not allowed. Many editors already use software to suggest reviewers and check for conflicts of interest, but having a human editor behind decisions is valuable, providing a sense of responsibility for the journal's content.

Editors and reviewers should not exclusively rely on generative AI to review the submitted papers. If AI tools are used, transparency with authors is essential, and AI-generated content should not be the sole basis for reviewer recommendations or editorial decisions. This caution is vital to preserve the role of editors in fostering meaningful scholarly discussions. While generative AI can aid in various aspects of paper evaluation, the complete substitution of humans in the review process should not occur, as retaining human evaluation is crucial to maintaining the integrity of the review process.
