There are ethical standards for publication that guarantee high quality scientific publications, public confidence in scientific findings and that people receive credit for their ideas. Scientific Journal of the Amazon complies with the guidelines and best practices established by the Publications Ethics Committee (COPE).
The papers sent to the Amazon Scientific Journal are subject to a rigorous peer review to ensure that the published research is "good science".
Scientific Journal of the Amazon has a 'double blind' review process: authors are not told who reviewed their article. The identity of the peer arbitrators remains unknown to the authors throughout the review process.
Scientific Journal of the Amazon uses Urkund Sofware to detect all shipments in search of plagiarism before publication, but authors, researchers and freelancers can use the software of their choice.
