Before submitting a manuscript to Geologica, authors are requested to comply with the Publication Ethics as mentioned below.
Each study is reviewed before publication. The procedure followed by Geologica is a double-blind review by the specialists of our editorial board. After the review, the material may be accepted, accepted after some modifications, or rejected. Authors must adapt the material to the needs of the reviewers. Otherwise, their publication will be rejected. Thus, the authors are obliged to participate in the peer-review process.
The corresponding author is an author who is responsible for all communication regarding the manuscript at all stages. He/she is also responsible for the approval of revised files by all authors.
In the publication process of the journal, the editors have the following responsibilities,
Authors and readers are encouraged to notify email@example.com if they discover errors in published content, authors’ names, and references, or if they have reason to be concerned about the legitimacy of a publication. In such cases, the Geologica Team (after consulting with the authors of the article) will publish an errata and/or replace or retract the article.
Errors may be found in published articles that require the publication of a correction in the form of a corrigendum or erratum. Since articles can be read and cited immediately after publication, subsequent changes can potentially affect those who read and cited the earlier version.
Articles may be withdrawn by the corresponding author before they are accepted for publication. Article retractions are strongly discouraged and are used only in exceptional cases for early versions of articles that have been accepted for publication but not yet officially published. Such versions may contain errors, may have been accidentally submitted twice, or may violate a journal’s ethical guidelines (e.g., multiple submissions, false claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, etc.). In such situations, especially in the case of legal/ethical violations or incorrect/inaccurate data, the use of which could pose a harmful risk, it may be decided to remove the earlier edition of the article from our electronic platform.
Note that authors who retain copyright to an article do not automatically have the right to withdraw it after publication. The quality of the published scientific record is of paramount importance, and these guidelines for retractions and retractions apply in such cases as well.
In exceptional cases, it may be unavoidable to remove an article from the Geologica Website. This will only be the case if the article is defamatory or violates the rights of others, or if the subject of a court order. In these circumstances, the metadata (title and authors) will be retained, but the text will be replaced with a notice that the article has been removed for legal reasons.
All authors declare that they have no conflicts of interest or financial support related to the present article.
The names and email addresses entered on the Geologica website will be used solely for the stated objectives of this journal and will not be shared for any other objective or with any other party.
