PUBLISHER POLICY

Sharing the same ethical value, Edra S.p.A publishes The European Annals of Allergy and Clinical Immunology on behalf of the “Associazione Allergologi Immunologi Italiani Territoriali e Ospedalieri” (Association of Italian Hospital Allergists and Immunologists – AAIITO) and the “Sociedade Portuguesa de Alergologia e Imunologia Clinica” (Portuguese Society of Allergology and Clinical Immunology – SPAIC).

Edra SpA applies rigorous Ethical standards to guarantee high-quality scientific publications to respect the willingness of AAIITO and SPAIC.

The submitted manuscripts must comply with the policies of The European Annals of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. In case of need, the guidelines based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) on good publication practice can be consulted.

Edra supports the COPE Core Practices, along with AAIITO and SPAIC, specifically in case of  Complaints and Appeals, discussed below. For Authorship criteria or Clinical trial registration or Information about Conflict of interests, the Publisher endorses the recommendations of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (http://www.icmje.org/).

MANAGEMENT OF SUBMISSIONS

Edra entrusts to Editorial Manager® by Aries Systems Corporation to the submission of the manuscripts, where one of the authors listed – usually the Corresponding author – is called to upload the manuscript in behalf of all the authors. The submitted manuscript must be original and must not have been published nor submitted for publication elsewhere.

When a new submission is received, the publisher’s office conducts an initial check of format and completeness of authors to assess if the authors followed the Instructions for authors. In case of discrepancies, the Editorial Office send back the manuscript with detailed information about the errors and the required modifications.

Involved parts

All submitted manuscripts are confidential documents. No information will be shared without the written permission of the author(s).

During the revision process, the following people may access to manuscripts:

  • Editors;
  • Members of Editorial Office;
  • Reviewers;
  • Authors.

In case of serious misconduct research, the Journal reserves the right to involve third parties.

Article withdrawal

Edra admits articles withdrawal upon request from the authors, in case manuscript has not received a final decision yet.

In case of acceptance and authors’ withdrawal willingness:

  • If a doi has not already been associated to the article, the article will be archived without publication.
  • If a doi has been already associated to the article due to the publication as ahead of print, the request of withdrawal will be rejected, and a retraction note will be attached to the article.
  • If the article is ready to be published in a specific volume ad issue, the request of withdrawal will be rejected, and the article published with a retraction note.

CONFLICT OF INTERESTS

Authors are called to sign a conflict of interest form provided by Edra during the proofreading phase. All the authors should sign: in case of difficulties in gathering all the signatures and absence of conflict of interests, only the corresponding authors can sign it in behalf of all the authors.

A conflict of interest may exist when an author or the author’s institution has a financial or other relationship with other people or organizations within three (3) years of beginning the work submitted that could inappropriately influence (bias) their work. Financial relationships are easily identifiable, but conflicts can also occur because of personal relationships, academic competition, or intellectual rivalry. A conflict can be actual or potential and full disclosure to the Journal is the safest course. The Journal may use such information as a basis for editorial decisions and may publish such disclosures if they are believed to be important to readers in judging the manuscript. A decision may be made by the Journal not to publish on the basis of the declared conflict.

The Conflict of interest can be:

  • Employment
  • Research funding (including funds received or pending for research in which one of more authors were the principal investigator, collaborator, or consultant)
  • Other Research Support (including receipt of drugs, supplies, equipment, or other in-kind support)
  • Honoraria (including fees received for speaking during symposia and other meetings or occasions)
  • Expert Witness (serving as an expert witness, consultant or otherwise providing a deposition, testimony, or other information, analysis or document for a lawsuit, government agency proceeding, grand jury, or other legal proceeding, even if the case did not go to trial)
  • Ownership Interest (stocks or stock options; partnership, membership, any rights in any patent or other intellectual property)
  • Other
  • None
