Journal of Engineering Geology requires that authors and reviewers of all its publications adhere to the ethical standards set up by COPE.
Authors listed in submitted paper must include all authors and exclude authors who do not meet the requirements of authorship. 
Responsibility for the correct attribution of authorship lies with authors themselves working under the guidance of their institution.
Submissions for publication should be the original work of the author(s). Credit must be given to previous work by appropriate referencing. When specific text from another work is used, it must appear in quotation marks. 
A submitted manuscript must not have been published elsewhere. Substantial overlapping of work with a previously published paper constitutes duplicate publication and is not permitted.
Submitting a manuscript to more than one journal is unethical, including submission of material that is substantially the same as material in a concurrent submission.
Work should be cautiously reviewed and results checked without inappropriate data manipulation. Authors of collaborative papers should all have read and be prepared to take responsibility for material submitted, results obtained and drawn conclusions.
Only citations relevant to the manuscript should be used. Unnecessary and excessive self-citation for the purpose of increasing the author(s)' number of citations is unethical.
