The publication of a research paper in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.

A respected network of knowledge can only be developed if the research paper is published in an open peer reviewed journal. It maintains the transparency among the authors and institutions that support the particular paper. Since, it is an open platform, it is important for all the parties including the author, the publisher, the journal editor, sponsored journals and the peer reviewer to agree with the paper before its publication. The content has to abide by the pre-decided ethical policies and the standards.
