The Journal of Korea Robotics Society Submission Regulations
Enacted: September 1, 2006
Revised: September 5, 2008
Revised: September 3, 2014
Revised: December 15, 2017
Article 1 (Purpose)
The purpose of these regulations is to present provisions regarding the ethical submission of papers to The Journal of Korea Robotics Society (referred to as the “Journal” hereafter) published by the Korea Robotics Society (referred to as the “Society” hereafter).
Article 2 (Credentials of Submitter)
It is a rule that a paper submitter must be a member of the Korea Robotics Society. With the explicit approval of the Editorial Board of the Society, a nonmember may submit a paper for publication.
Article 3 (Responsibility)
Authors must present their original work with genuine data and an objective discussion of its significance. It is primarily authors’ responsibility to the submittal pertaining to the scientific integrity. Authorship must include and be strictly limited to researchers who have substantially contributed to the reported work. Any paper that was previously submitted to another domestic or foreign publication may not be submitted to this journal. The authors should reveal to the editor any potential conflict of interest regarding the funded research, e.g., a consulting or financial interest in a company that might be affected by publication of the results contained in a manuscript. If authors find inaccuracies after publication of their paper, they need to promptly communicate to the editors of this journal regarding the matter so that appropriate actions can be taken; Authors can publish an addendum or an article version of correction note, or retract the original work. Specific cases are given as follows.
If crucial results were unintentionally omitted from the original publication, the original article can be amended through an Addendum reporting these previously omitted results. The Addendum will be published, with page numbers added, in the current issue of the journal.
Before issue release: prior to issue release, corrections are directly made to the original, published version of the article on the journal’s website. A note will also be added to the Article Versions Notes and to the abstract page, which tells the reader that an updated version was uploaded. The original version is preserved and will remain accessible on the journal’s homepage.
After issue release: any corrections to published articles have to be published, with page numbers added, in a separate Correction notice in the current issue of the journal.
Sometimes, an article may present results or contents that are incorrect, misrepresented, carelessly prepared, intentionally falsified or plagiarized. Such articles threaten the integrity of scientific records and need to be retracted. When editors are alerted of possible scientific misconduct, the editorial office and the editor-in-chief will organize a careful investigation with authors, editorial board members, institute authorities or other parties (as appropriate), and will make a decision on a possible Retraction of the original publication. If a Retraction is published, it will officially replace the original publication on the website. The original publication is amended with a “RETRACTED” watermark, but will still available on the journal’s website for future reference. However, retracted articles should not be cited and used for further research. The Retraction is published, with page numbers added, as a separate item in the current issue of the journal, so that after issue release, the Retraction can be picked up by indexing & abstracting services.
Partial Retractions might be published in cases where results are only partially wrong. Comments and Replies Comments are short letters to the editors from readers questioning either the results reported or the experimental methods used in a specific article. Usually, a reader will approach the Editorial Office or the Editor-in-Chief of a journal, if he/she finds an article intriguing. In such circumstances, the Editorial Office may invite the reader to write a short and reasoned Comment on the article. After consideration and review by the Editorial Office, the Comment may be published, in which case the Editorial Office will approach the authors of the article in question and invite them to prepare a Reply. If the reader’s complaints are substantiated, the authors or the Editorial Office may consequently publish a Correction or retract the paper entirely.
