  • Editors and editorial team members are excluded from publication decisions when they are authors or have contributed to a manuscript.
  • A short statement may be useful for any published article that lists editors or board members as authors to explain the process used to make the editorial decision.

  • Authors and contributors

    Authorship gives recognition and credit for work done, accountability for reported research, confers moral and legal rights (copyright) and plays an important role in shaping academic careers. The minimum recognized requirements for authorship are making a substantial contribution to the research and being accountable for the work undertaken. We request the authors to confirm, on submission, that they and their co-authors meet the requirements for authorship. We notify all authors that they have received a submission and confirm that emails are valid. An individual who does not meet authorship criteria for a specific piece of work but has contributed in some capacity should be acknowledged, with their approval.


    Academic debate and appeals

    We facilitate post-publication academic debate , through letters to the editor. we encourage correspondence and constructive criticism of the work they publish. If an item of correspondence discusses a specific article, the we invite the authors of the work to respond before the correspondence is published. If possible, the correspondence and the authors’ response will be published at the same time. We also have a mechanism for authors to appeal editorial decisions, to facilitate genuine appeals, and to discourage repeated or unfounded appeals. Editors of IJTRET shall mediate all exchanges between authors and peer reviewers during the peer-review process. Editors may seek comments from additional peer reviewers to help them make their final decision. However the editor’s decision following an appeal is final.

    Author name changes after publication

    In cases where authors wish to change their name following publication, IJTRET will update and republish the paper and redeliver the updated metadata to indexing services. Authors should contact the journal’s Editorial Office with their name change request.

    Corrections and retractions

    We encourage readers and authors to notify them if they find errors, especially errors that could affect the interpretation of data or information presented in an article. When an error is identified:

  • Corrections will be included in indexing systems and linked to the original article.
