Dealing with misconduct

The journal takes all breaches of ethical issues related to academic publication very seriously. If editorial staff suspects misconduct (or if an allegation of misconduct is brought to them), especially it concerns plagiarism and falsified data, they have authority to reject papers and make the matter public.
