Publication Ethics

Peer Review Process

All articles undergo a double-blind peer-review process by experts in the field before a decision is made to publish.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.


TIR Policies

Translation and Interpreting Research (TIR) expects authors to observe the necessary moral codes within their research. In case a breach of the regulations occurs, the journal reserves the right to further investigate the case.
Permissions: If authors are using any material e.g. figures, tables, etc that have already been published elsewhere, they must obtain permission to reuse them from the copyright holder (this may be the publisher rather than the author) and include any required permission statements in the figure legends. This includes their own previously published material if they are not the copyright holder. It is the author’s responsibility to secure all permissions prior to publication.

Fee: Publishing paper in TIR is free (there are no page charges) and accessibility to articles is free as well (there are no subscription charges). Thus, neither authors nor readers have to pay.

Ethics: Previously published manuscripts are not accepted by the journal. Informed consent obtained from all participants and from the parents, etc must be stated in Methods section. The name of the appropriate institutional review board that approved the project must also be included.

Plagiarism: TIR takes a tough position to plagiarism. All articles registered will be tested for plagiarism. Any article that fails to pass the plagiarism detection will be sent back to its author and the alleged author/s will be charged and the case would be reported to the affiliated university ethics committee.

Acknowledgment: All individuals who have contributed to the project but do not meet the criteria for authorship can be stated and thanked in the Acknowledgment section.

Conflicts of interest: Any sources of funding and potential conflicting interest must be declared such as receiving funds or fees.

Tables & Figures: Tables and figures must be placed in their appropriate place in the manuscript (not at the end) with their legend being written above the Table and below the Figure. They should have borders with normal style without any colored row or column. The style of the table should be simple. Tables and figures should not be an image captured from other papers and sources without permission, which can be considered plagiarism.

Abbreviations and Symbols: SI units should be used throughout the manuscript. Whenever possible, drugs should be given their approved generic name. Where a proprietary (brand) name is used, it should begin with a capital letter. Acronyms must be fully explained in parenthesis when first used.
