CLA Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

CLA, the International Conference on Concept Lattices and Their Applications, is committed to observing the highest standards of publication ethics. We state the following principles of publication ethics and malpractice statement. Articles that are not in accordance with these standards will be removed from publication. We also check for plagiarism, research fabrication, and falsification. Any cases of plagiarism or duplicate publishing will be reported.

Authors must ensure that they have written original works and that the manuscript has not been submitted elsewhere. Any work of other authors needs to be appropriately referenced. Authors submitting their works to CLA confirm that the works represent their authors’ contributions and have not been copied from other works without clearly citing. Submitting a paper simultaneously to more than one publication at a time is a breach of publications ethics.

The program chairs must ensure a fair single-blind peer-review of the submitted articles for publication. They need to prevent any potential conflict of interests between the author and review personnel. Program chairs coordinate the work of the program committee members.

Reviewers evaluate manuscripts based on content. They must ensure that all the information related to submitted manuscripts is kept as confidential and must report to the program chairs if they are aware of copyright infringement and plagiarism. They must evaluate the submitted works objectively as well as present clearly their opinions on the works in a clear way in the review form.
