  While Journal of Earth Sciences and Environment welcome any original scientific work for publication, we expect that:
  1. the work submitted for publication has not been published before, except in the form of abstracts, preprints, published lectures, theses, proceedings-type publications, or discussion papers that have not undergone full journal peer-review, and it is not under consideration for peer-reviewed publication elsewhere;
  2. its publication has been approved by all author(s) and, tacitly or explicitly, by the responsible authorities and/or the institutes where the work has been carried out;
  3. if and when the manuscript is accepted for peer-reviewed publication, it may be not submitted for peer-reviewed publication elsewhere;
  4. the authors have secured the right to reproduce any material in his/her/their work that has already been published elsewhere;
  5. the authors agree with the License and Copyright Agreement;
  6. from submission to publication, the authors of a manuscript are formally represented by the registered contact author(s). After publication, the authors of a manuscript are formally represented by the corresponding author(s) specified in the published paper;
  7. The use of general descriptive names, etc., in the articles of this journal, even if not specifically identified, does not imply that these names are not protected by the relevant laws and regulations;
  8. While the advice and information in this journal is believed to be true and accurate at the date each article is published, neither the authors, the editors, nor Magazine Company of Chang’an University can accept any legal responsibility for any errors or omissions that may be made. Magazine Company of Chang’an University makes no warranty, expressed or implied, with respect to the material contained herein.
General Obligations for Authors:
  1. An author's primary obligation is to present a concise, accurate account of the research performed, as well as an objective discussion of its significance.
  2. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to public sources of information to permit the author's peers to repeat the work.
  3. An author should cite those publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work and that will quickly guide the reader to the initial work essential for understanding the present investigation. Information obtained privately, as in conversation, correspondence, or discussion with third parties, should not be used or reported in the author's work without explicit permission from the investigator with whom the information originated. Information obtained in the course of confidential services, such as refereeing manuscripts or grant applications, should be treated similarly.
  4. Fragmentation of research papers should be avoided. A scientist who has done extensive work on a system or group of related systems should organize publication so that each paper gives a complete account of a particular aspect of the general study.
  5. It is inappropriate for an author to submit manuscripts describing essentially the same research to more than one journal of primary publication.
  6. To protect the integrity of authorship, only persons who have significantly contributed to the research and paper preparation should be listed as authors. The corresponding author attests to the fact that any others named as authors have seen the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication. No fictitious names should be listed as authors or co-authors. The author who submits a manuscript for publication accepts the responsibility of having included as co-authors all persons that are appropriate and none that are inappropriate.
  General Obligations for Editors:
  1. An editor should give unbiased consideration to all manuscripts offered for publication, judging each on its merits without regard to race, gender, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the author(s).
  2. An editor should process manuscripts promptly.
  3. The editor has complete responsibility and authority to accept a submitted paper for publication or to reject it. The editor may confer with other editors or referees for an evaluation to use in making this decision.
  4. The editor and the editorial staff should not disclose any non-public information about a manuscript under consideration to anyone other than referees and potential referees. Referee reports and referee identity can be shared with another editor if the processing of the submission is transferred.
  5. An editor should respect the intellectual independence of authors.
  6. Editorial responsibility and authority for any manuscript authored by an editor and submitted to the editor's journal should be delegated to some other qualified person, such as another editor or an associate editor of that journal. Editors should avoid situations of real or perceived conflicts of interest.
  7. Editors should avoid situations of real or perceived conflicts of interest if the relationship would bias judgement of the manuscript. Such conflicts may include, but are not limited to, handling papers from present and former students, from colleagues with whom the editor has recently collaborated, and from those in the same institution.
