As an open access journal, Journal of the Korean Dysphagia Society(JKDS) will follow the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing (https://doaj.org/bestpractice) developed by Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), and the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME).
The JKDS has on online submission and peer review system at https://jkds.org/.submission/Login.html
Journal of the Korean Dysphagia Society reviews all manuscripts received. A manuscript is first reviewed for its format and adherence to the aims and scope of the journal. If the manuscript meets these two criteria, it is dispatched to at least two investigators in the field with relevant knowledge. Assuming the manuscript is sent to reviewers, Journal of the Korean Dysphagia Society waits to receive opinions from at least two reviewers. In addition, if deemed necessary, a review of statistics may be requested. If the opinions of the two reviewers are different, the editorial office selects a third reviewer for additional peer review. The authors’ names and affiliations are removed during peer review. The acceptance criteria for all papers are based on the quality and originality of the research and its scientific significance. Acceptance of the manuscript is decided based on the critiques and recommended decision of the reviewers.
An initial decision will normally be made within 4 weeks of receipt of a manuscript, and the reviewers’ comments are sent to the corresponding author by e-mail. The corresponding author must indicate the alterations that have been made in response to the reviewers’ comments item by item. Failure to resubmit the revised manuscript within 4 weeks of the editorial decision is regarded as a withdrawal. A final decision on acceptance/rejection for publication is forwarded to the corresponding author from the editor.
All manuscripts from editors, employees, or members of the editorial board are processed same to other unsolicited manuscripts. During the review process, submitters will not engage in the decision process. Editors will not handle their own manuscripts although they are commissioned ones. We neither guarantee the acceptance without review nor very short peer review times for unsolicited manuscripts. Commissioned manuscripts are also reviewed before publication. We adopt double-blind peer review for all manuscripts, in which not only authors but also reviewers do not know each other.
The editorial board of JKDS have carefully examined all submitted manuscripts whether these are abided by the ethical guidelines of the ICMJE and COPE. The published articles have involved the statements of conflict of interest, institutional review board, informed consent, and human/animal rights.
When the Journal faces suspected cases of research and publication misconduct such as a redundant (duplicate) publication, plagiarism, fabricated data, changes in authorship, undisclosed conflicts of interest, an ethical problem discovered with the submitted manuscript, a reviewer who has appropriated an author’s idea or data, complaints against editors, and other issues, the resolving process will follow the flowchart provided by the COPE (https://publicationethics.org/resources/flowcharts). The editorial board of JKDS will discuss the suspected cases and reach a decision. JKDS will not hesitate to publish errata, corrigenda, clarifications, retractions, and apologies when needed.
