  • Research and publication ethics

All of the manuscripts should be prepared in strict observation of research and publication ethics guidelines recommended by the Council of Science Editors (CSE, http://www.councilscienceeditors.org/ (http://www.councilscienceeditors.org/)), International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE, http://www.icmje.org/ (http://www.icmje.org/)), World Association of Medical Editors (WAME, http://www.wame.org/ (http://www.wame.org/)) and the Korean Association of Medical Journal Editors (KAMJE, http://www.kamje.or.kr/intro.php?body=eng_index (http://www.kamje.or.kr/intro.php?body=eng_index)) Journal of Bone Metabolism (JBM) will follow the guidelines by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE, http://publicationethics.org/ (http://publicationethics.org/)) for settlement of any misconduct. In case of suspected misconduct such as fabrication, falsification or duplication, each ethical issue is followed by recommended actions as advised by COPE guidelines and flowcharts. All reviewers have a responsibility to report to the Editor about any suspected issues with the manuscript. If the investigation proves scientific misconduct, publish a retraction of the article. If warranted, the authors should be invited to prepare the retraction, which should be submitted with an assignment of copyright statement that has been signed by all authors. If the paper has not been published then the Editor can always reject the paper. Instances of misconduct in the publication process will be shared with the editorial board of the JBM journal. The Editor may wish to impose sanctions, notify editors of other biomedical journals, and depending on the severity of the allegation, notify the author's institution. The JBM will not hesitate to publish errata, corrigenda, clarifications, retractions, and apologies when the misconduct is founded.
