Committee on Publication Ethics

As much as one may hope that the publishing of scientific content can occur without issue, this is not always the case. From time to time, issues which affect the scientific record or with an ethical background may and do arise. These issues include, but are not limited to the following areas:

  • Allegations of misconduct
  • Authorship & contributorship
  • Complaints and appeals
  • Conflicts of interest, competing interests
  • Data and reproducibility
  • Ethical oversight
  • Intellectual property
  • Journal management
  • Peer review process
  • Post publication discussions and corrections

As a journal, we follow the practices, guidelines and recommendations given by COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) and plan on becoming a member of COPE. For further information on how we handle issues, please also refer to our Publication Ethics Statement.

To ensure that the InterPore Journal has a way of handling these issues as well as a providing a team to which both the Board of Editors as well as Authors and Reviewers can turn to, we have team of four members which comprise our Committee on Publication Ethics.

Fluids and Complex Systems Research Centre
Coventry University, UK

Dr. Holtzman is a Reader (Associate Professor) and theme lead at Coventry University, UK. His research interests are multiscale modeling of coupled processes involving multiphase and reactive transport in porous and granular media, emphasizing heterogeneity and nonequilbrium including the emergence of instabilities and preferential pathways, hysteresis and rate dependence. After his PhD at the University of California , Berkeley (Civil and Environ. Eng.) he was a postdoc in MIT, a lecturer at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Soil Physics) and a visiting scholar at the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDAEA-CSIC) in Barcelona.
