Original research papers and letters to the editor of Scientific News of Pacific Region are welcome. Both should contain an Abstract (of up to 300 words) and a Conclusion section.
Submission of an article for publication in Scientific News of Pacific Region implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis or as an electronic preprint), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language. Each author submitting a manuscript for publication is requested to disclose any actual or potential conflict of interest including any financial, personal or other relationships with other people or organizations, within two years of beginning the submitted work, that could inappropriately influence, or be perceived to influence, his/their work.
Each manuscript undergoes a review process before a decision on acceptance to publication is made.
Upon acceptance of an article, all rights are transferred to the Editor of Scientific News of Pacific Region as the copyright-holder.
If successful at the first stage, two external reviewers are chosen. The author and the reviewers do not know each other’s identity (double – blind review process).
Acceptance of the agreement will ensure the widest possible dissemination of information as free of charge and open for audience.
After the accepted manuscript is published in an online issue, any requests to add, delete, or rearrange author names and/or introduce any corrections will require a suitable corrigendum.
