This journal adheres to the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) guidelines, which specify that the following requirements must be met to qualify for authorship of a manuscript:
Authors are expected to carefully consider the list and order of authors before submitting their manuscript and provide a definitive list of authors at the time of the original submission. Those who contributed to the work but do not qualify for authorship should be listed in the acknowledgments.
Any addition, deletion, or rearranging of author names in the authorship list should only occur prior to the manuscript's acceptance and with the Journal Editor-in-Chief's approval. To request such a change, the Editor-in-Chief must receive the following items from the corresponding author:
This journal follows Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) guidelines for the use of artificial intelligence in manuscript writing, which state that authors should not list a generative AI technology as a co-author or author of any submitted manuscript:
AI tools cannot meet the requirements for authorship as they cannot take responsibility for the submitted work. As non-legal entities, they cannot assert the presence or absence of conflicts of interest nor manage copyright and license agreements.
Authors who use AI tools in the writing of a manuscript, the production of images or graphical elements of the paper, or the collection and analysis of data must be transparent in disclosing in the Materials and Methods (or similar section) of the paper how the AI tool was used and which tool was used. Authors are fully responsible for the content of their manuscript, even those parts produced by an AI tool, and are thus liable for any breach of publication ethics.
A key part of the scholarly communications infrastructure is digital preservation. We are dedicated to maintaining all academic resources published in the Journal of Optics and Photonics Research for the foreseeable future. To guarantee the continued accessibility of digital content, we work with the following providers of digital archives:
Authors are encouraged to deposit the final published PDF as follows:
Authors should provide a link from the deposited version to the URL of the journal's website.
The journal accepts articles previously published on preprint servers. You are requested to update any pre-publication versions with a link to the final published article. You may also post the final published version of the article immediately after publication.
For maintaining the integrity of the scientific record and avoiding inconsistencies downstream, minor corrections that do not affect the scientific understanding of the paper (for example, formatting or typographical errors or preference of wording) may be rejected if submitted post-publication.
The correction procedure depends on the publication stage of the article, but in all circumstances, a correction notice is released as soon as possible:
Online First publication: The Journal of Optics and Photonics Research will consider replacing the Online First version with an updated version that corrects the error and notes the changes that have been made and the date(s) on which the changes were made (in a correction notice at the end of the article).
Publication in an issue: If the article has already appeared in an issue, a correction notice will be released in the next available electronic and print issue. The online version of the article will link to the correction notice.
Retractions are considered by journal editors in cases of evidence of unreliable data or findings, plagiarism, duplicate publication, and unethical research. All retraction notices explain why the article was retracted. A retraction notice will also be published in the next available electronic and print issue.
Editors should consider retracting a publication if:
To enrich your content, you can include supplementary materials such as applications, images, and videos. Submitted supplemental materials are published precisely as submitted. Please submit your material together with the article and supply a concise, descriptive caption for each supplementary file. If you wish to make modifications to supplemental materials at any point during the process, please submit an updated file.
As of right now, the journal has not opted for advertising, and no advertisements will be published in the articles, on the official website of the journal, etc.
The authors should ensure that the individual rights of all the participants who are involved in the study are protected. Identifying details (e.g., names and dates of birth) of the participants that were studied should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, or genetic profiles unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the participant (or parent or guardian if the participant is incapable) gave written informed consent for publication.
All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial and personal relationships with other people or organizations that could be viewed as inappropriately influencing their work. Examples of potential conflicts of interest that should be disclosed include employment, consultancies, stock ownership, paid expert testimony, patent applications/registrations, and grants or other funding.
Authors may appeal if they feel that the decision to reject was based on: i) a major misunderstanding over a technical aspect of the manuscript; or ii) a failure to understand the scientific advance shown by the manuscript. Appeals without sufficient justification will not be considered. To lodge an appeal, please contact the Managing Editor by email within 3 months from the decision date, quoting your manuscript number. Appeals will only be considered by the original submitting author.
The manuscript and any relevant materials will be sent by the Managing Editor to a designated Editorial Board Member. This delegate would provide a recommendation on the manuscript and may recommend acceptance, further peer review, or uphold the original rejection decision. The Editor-in-Chief would make a final decision based on the recommendation. A rejected decision at this stage is final and cannot be reversed.
We welcome complaints because they allow us to do better, and we'll respond promptly and constructively. We address the following complaints:
The complaint should, in the first instance, be handled by the Editor-in-Chief. If the Editor-in-Chief is the subject of the complaint, please contact the Managing Editor who will send the relevant materials to a designated Editorial Board Member. All complaints will be acknowledged (within 5 working days if by email). If possible, a definitive response will be made within 4 weeks. If this is not possible, an interim response will be given within 4 weeks. Interim responses will be provided until the complaint is finally resolved.
We strongly endorse The FAIR Data Principles and believe that where ethically and legally feasible, all research data should be findable, accessible, interoperable, and re-usable. We encourage authors of articles published in our journal to share their research data including, but not limited to: raw data, processed data, software, algorithms, protocols, methods, and materials.
Subject to appropriate ethical and legal considerations, authors are encouraged to:
If you're submitting your paper with a data sharing policy, then you'll be prompted to provide a data availability statement with your submission. A data availability statement tells the reader where the research data associated with a paper is available, and under what conditions the data can be accessed. They also include links (where applicable) to the data set.
