The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed JOCS is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the authors, the journal editors, the peer reviewers, the publisher and the society. 

Bes Sinergi Properti as publisher of this journal takes its duties of guardianship over all stages of publishing extremely seriously and we recognize our ethical and other responsibilities.
