Our perspective

Publication Ethics

TXT supports the principles of theCommittee on Publication Ethics (COPE). We follows its Best Practice Guidelines and abide by its Code of Conduct for dealing with potential cases of misconduct. We expect our authors to comply with, best practice in publication ethics, particularly with regard to authorship, competing interests, compliance with standards of research ethics, falsification and fabrication of data, redundant publication, plagiarism, figure manipulation and dual submission.

If we find conclusive evidence of misconduct, we will take steps to correct the scientific record, which may include issuing a correction or retraction.

Any concerns about the above should be addressed to the editorial office at
