ScholarOne Manuscripts

This journal uses ScholarOne Manuscripts (previously Manuscript Central) to peer review manuscript submissions. Please read the guide for ScholarOne authors before making a submission. Complete guidelines for preparing and submitting your manuscript to this journal are provided below.

Aims and Scope. Accountability in Research: Policies and Quality Assurance is devoted to the examination and critical analysis of systems for maximizing integrity in the conduct of research. It provides an interdisciplinary, international forum for the development of new procedures, standards, and policies to encourage the ethical conduct of research for enhancing the validity of research results. The journal publishes original empirical, methodological, policy, and theoretical papers; case studies; conference reports; and book reviews.

Please note that  Accountability in Research: Policies and Quality Assurance uses  CrossCheck™ software to screen papers for unoriginal material. By submitting your paper to  Accountability in Research: Policies and Quality Assurance you are agreeing to any necessary originality checks your paper may have to undergo during the peer review and production processes.

Submission of Manuscripts.

Accountability in Research receives all manuscript submissions electronically via its ScholarOne Manuscripts site located at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/air. ScholarOne Manuscripts allows for rapid submission of original and revised manuscripts, and facilitates the review process and internal communication between authors, editors, and reviewers via a web-based platform. ScholarOne technical support can be accessed at http://scholarone.com/services/support. If you have any other requests, please contact Adil E. Shamoo, Editor-in-Chief, at AShamoo@som.umaryland.edu.

The file should be prepared using MS Word or WordPerfect and should be clearly labeled with the authors’ names and software program. Each manuscript must be accompanied by a statement that it has not been published elsewhere and that it has not been submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce copyrighted material from other sources and are required to sign an agreement for the transfer of copyright to the publisher. As an author, you are required to secure permission if you want to reproduce any figure, table, or extract from the text of another source. This applies to direct reproduction as well as “derivative reproduction” (where you have created a new figure or table which derives substantially from a copyrighted source). All accepted manuscripts, artwork, and photographs become the property of the publisher. All parts of the manuscript should be typewritten, double-spaced, with margins of at least one inch on all sides. Number manuscript pages consecutively throughout the paper. Authors should also supply a shortened version of the title suitable for the running head, not exceeding 50 character spaces. Each article should be summarized in an abstract of not more than 200 words. Avoid abbreviations, diagrams, and reference to the text.

Letter to the Editor: A response to an important issue addressed in an article or a Commentary published recently in Accountability in Research. A Letter to the Editor should not exceed 500 words and have no (or a minimum) of references.

 

Commentary: This format addresses a compelling public issue of concern in research or an article published in the journal. Commentaries should not exceed 1500 words. A Commentary will be subject to the regular peer review process.

 

Review: A scholarly format addressing recent developments in an area important to the field within the scope of issues covered by the journal. Before submission, the author should write an abstract of the review, including an explanation of the journal, as the appropriate venue for the content, prior to the submission. Reviews will be subject to the regular peer review process.

AIR follows a double-blind peer review process. Identities and institutional affiliations of authors are not disclosed to reviewers and identities and affiliations of reviewers are not disclosed to authors unless the authors or reviewers opt to have their identities unmasked. After a manuscript is submitted to Accountability in Research (AIR), the editor-in-chief (EIC) determines if it falls within the aims and scope of the journal and is a legitimate submission. If eligible for publication in AIR, the EIC serves as editor for the manuscript or assigns responsibility to an associate editor. The responsible editor reads the manuscript carefully to determine potential reviewers. Full-length manuscripts are sent to at least two peer reviewers. An editor reviews commentaries and in addition they may be sent to a peer reviewer. An editor reviews letters and book reviews. Peer reviewers have four weeks to make their report. Manuscript editors collate reviewer comments and recommend to: accept as is, accept with minor revisions, accept with major revisions, revise and resubmit, or reject. The EIC decides whether to follow the manuscript editor’s recommendations. AIR policy is to have a decision to authors within six weeks of initial submission, but this is contingent on timely response from potential and actual peer reviewers. Unless other arrangements are made, manuscript authors are expected to return revised manuscripts within four weeks. If a manuscript requires only minor revisions, it is sent back to the manuscript editor to make a recommendation to the EIC. If a manuscript requires major revisions, the manuscript editor sends it back to the reviewers for their assessment, collates reviewer comments and makes a revised recommendation to the EIC. Manuscripts that are revise/resubmit will re-enter the peer review process as described above. The EIC has final responsibility for all editorial decisions.

 

Manuscript Length. No limit on manuscript length as long as it is justified.

Conflict of Interest. A conflict of interest exists when an author (or the author’s institution or employer) has financial or personal relationships or affiliations that could influence or reasonably be perceived to influence (or bias) the author’s decisions, work, or manuscript. All authors and reviewers are required to disclose all potential conflicts of interest, including specific financial interests and relationships and affiliations (other than those affiliations listed in the title page of the manuscript) relevant to the subject of their manuscript. Typically these would include (over a period of 3 years): patents applied for received, or held, consultancies, membership on company advisory boards; equity interests in a company that could benefit from the subject matter of the paper, industry funded speaker bureaus. Authors and editors should err on the side of full disclosure and should contact the editorial office if they have questions or concerns.

Authorship. Authorship on manuscripts submitted for publication should be based on a significant intellectual contribution to manuscript. For empirical research, a significant intellectual contribution consists of a contribution to conception and design, data collection, or data analysis and interpretation. For conceptual, normative, or policy research, a significant contribution consists of a contribution to conception and design, substantive literature review, or development or analysis of arguments and positions. All authors should have read the entire manuscript and reviewed, drafted, or edited it for critical intellectual content. All authors should agree with the conclusions drawn in the manuscript and be prepared to publically defend their contributions to the manuscript. Providing data, acquiring funding, or supervising research, by themselves, do not constitute a significant intellectual contribution to a manuscript. Individuals that make a contribution to the manuscript that does not meet the criteria for authorship should be mentioned in the acknowledgements. This journal does not accept “ghost authored” papers. All manuscripts will be checked for plagiarism using CrossCheck/iThenticate software.

Human Subjects. All research that involves research with human subjects should comply with relevant laws/regulations or institutional guidelines. Authors that submit manuscripts involving research with human subjects should include a statement that the research has been approved by an institutional review board or other research ethics committee, or that the research has been determined to be exempt from human subjects research review.

Animal Subjects. All research that involves research with animals subjects should comply with relevant laws/regulations or institutional guidelines. Authors that subject manuscripts involving research with animal subjects should include a statement that the research has been approved by an institutional animal care and use committee or other research ethics committee, or that the research has been determined to be exempt from animal research review.

Ethics Code of Conduct Policy. Accountability in Research follows the Committee on Publication Ethics’ Code of Conduct ( http://publicationethics.org/files/u2/New_Code.pdf) for addressing allegations of misconduct related to articles submitted to or published in the journal. Accountability in Research defines misconduct as fabrication or falsification of data or plagiarism.

Illustrations. Illustrations submitted (line drawings, halftones, photos, photomicrographs, etc.) should be digital files. For highest quality reproduction, files should follow these guidelines:

300 dpi or higher

EPS, TIFF, or PSD format only

submitted as separate files, not embedded in text files

Color Reproduction. Color art will be reproduced in color in the online publication at no additional cost to the author. Color illustrations will also be considered for print publication; however, the author will be required to bear the full cost involved in color art reproduction. Please note that color reprints can only be ordered if print reproduction costs are paid. Print Rates: $900 for the first page of color; $450 per page for the next three pages of color. A custom quote will be provided for articles with more than four pages of color. Art not supplied at a minimum of 300 dpi will not be considered for print.

Tables and Figures. Tables and figures should be embedded in the text. A short descriptive title should appear above each table with a clear legend and any footnotes suitably identified below. All units must be included. Figures should be completely labeled, taking into account necessary size reduction. Captions should be in the manuscript text file.

References. References should follow the Chicago Manual of Style, should be listed on separate pages following the text, typed double-spaced, and should refer only to material cited in the manuscript. In text, reference citations should include author and year of publication. References should include names of all contributing authors (last names first); title of article; title of journal or book; volume number; location and name of publishing company (books only); inclusive pages; year of publication. Examples:

Journal: Manton, K. G., Stallard, E., and Vaupel, J. (1981). Methods for comparing the mortality experience of heterogeneous populations. Demography 18:389–410.

Book: Draper, N. R., and Smity, H. (1981). Applied Regression Analysis (2nd edition). New York: John Wiley.

Proofs. The corresponding author will receive proofs, which should be proofread and returned within 48 hours of receipt. Corrections are limited to printer errors—no substantial author changes will be made.

Complimentary Policy and Reprints. Authors for whom we receive a valid email address will be provided an opportunity to purchase reprints of individual articles, or copies of the complete print issue. These authors will also be given complimentary access to their final article on Taylor & Francis Online.
