In order to standardize the publishing behavior, promote scientific research integrity, create a good academic atmosphere, and improve the overall publishing professional ethics, Iron Steel Vanadium Titanium Editorial Office solemnly declares. Publishing parties (including authors, editorial departments and reviewers) need to reach consensus on accepted publishing ethics and abide by it together.

I. Editor's Duties

1. Publishing requirements: Based on the review opinions of the editorial board and reviewers, the editor-in-chief decides to recruit, reject or request the author to revise the manuscript. Publishing ethics should not be adhered to for the purpose of commercial interests.

2. Reviewing manuscripts: The editorial department should use the software of academic misconduct detection to detect the academic misconduct of the original manuscripts. After testing, the first draft is submitted to the reviewer for double blind review and final review.

3. The editorial department will fully respect the legitimate rights and interests of the authors, and refuse to publish articles whose signatures are controversial, whose sources are not specified by citing others' works, and whose academic misconduct includes copy, plagiarism and fraud.

4. Fairness: The admission of manuscripts depends on academic level, regardless of the author's gender, race, religion, nationality, status, seniority and authority.

5. Information disclosure and conflict of interest: The editor-in-charge must ensure that the contributions submitted by the author are not made public to persons outside the editorial board without the author's consent before they are officially published.

6. Keep the integrity of academic records.

II. Author's Duties

1. Publishing Standards: The papers provided should be original. Papers should have detailed basic data, objective statement analysis and accurate conclusions, no false statements and fabrication, tampering with data and other immoral acts. The published papers are not confidential contents of the state.

2. Originality: The author must ensure that the manuscript is the original work. The citation of other people's research results should be marked in the citation place and detailed sources should be listed in the reference literature. There are no infringements such as plagiarism of other people's research results.

3. Authors should ensure that no one contributes more to the paper.

4. Author's signature requirement: Author must make significant contributions to the formulation, design, implementation or translation of the research results in this paper. Author must ensure that all authors agree to the final publication and sign copyright agreements.

III. Duties of reviewers

1. Confidentiality: The reviewer keeps the information of the manuscript under review confidential.

2. Content Originality Audit: Reviewers only evaluate the manuscripts academically, but do not evaluate individuals and make personal attacks. The research data in the manuscripts reviewed should be evaluated. If any data are similar or duplicated to those in the articles being studied or known to be published, the Editorial Office should be informed in a timely manner.

3. Objectivity: Reviewers must ensure that all manuscripts are treated objectively and impartially, and that their opinions on reviewing manuscripts are expressed truthfully.
