Peer-Review Process

Plagiarism

Papers submitted to Art Style Magazine are automatically checked for plagiarism; if a paper is plagiarized, it will not be accepted. All published articles go through the plagiarism scanner and must meet the ethical standards of academic conduct. If plagiarism is discovered in a published article, the plagiarized piece will be removed, and the author will no longer be able to publish in this magazine.

Research Publishing Ethics

Art Style Magazine outlines the best practice principles for our publications. We defend the best practices in our publications and follow top institutions’ directions on teaching, science, and research worldwide. With this practice, we wish to remember the fundamental values of recognition of merit and the originality of researchers and authors. Therefore, we present here the central notions of good conduct and research publishing ethics, based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the United States National Science Foundation’s policies and procedures, the European Science Foundation’s code of conduct, and the FAPESP São Paulo Research Foundation’s code of good scientific practice.

“Authorship credit should be based only on: (1) substantial contributions to conception and design, or acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; (2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; and (3) final approval of the version to be published. Conditions (1), (2), and (3) must all be met. Acquisition of funding, the collection of data, or general supervision of the research group, by themselves, do not justify authorship” (ICMJE criteria 2000 and COPE 2020).
