The authors also have to justify that, in case of a shared authorship, there was a full consensus of all the authors affected and that the article or book review has not been previously presented or published in other journals.

In the event that GENEROS editors are made aware of any allegation of research misconduct, these allegations would be treated accordingly. GENEROS editors will be willing to publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies whenever needed.
