Research ethics policies

Editors and publishers have a key role to play in protecting the integrity of scientific and academic research.

Misconduct can seriously harm the research community:

  • It can cause a general loss of trust in journals and research.

  • It can damage people’s careers, including those of innocent parties, for example co-authors who may not have been aware of any unethical behaviour of the submitting author and journal editors whose reputations may become tarnished by association.

  • It can damage institutions' reputations.

  • It can corrupt the evidence base by perpetuating false data and findings.

  • It is a waste of time, effort, and funds.

There are also wider considerations:

  • Public policy and practice may be based on fraudulent research.

  • Patients might be at risk if recommendations based on fraudulent research are followed.

  • Funding fraudulent research is a waste of taxpayers’ money.

World Health Academy Publishing House requires authors to comply with all relevant ethical procedures set out by their institutions and funding bodies, and operate with complete transparency with regards to how the research was conducted, sources of funding, conflicts of interest, participant consent etc. These requirements are set out in full on the individual Journal pages and should also be included in your journal’s submission guidelines. Breaches in these ethics should be investigated by the institutions involved and the journal Editor should work with World Health Academy Publishing House on taking the necessary steps to correct the academic record where necessary.
