Keeping the high ethic consciousness and publication ethics is crucial for every participator in processes of academic research, paper writing and publishing. Food and Fermentation Industries has formulated the following publication ethics guidelines in light of its own actual situation.

3)  The bibliography information should be clearly annotated in the references. All authors must contribute to the work. When authors discover any errors in their own papers, all authors are obliged to promptly notify the journal editor and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.

4)  Authors should respect the opinions of reviewing experts. If there is any objection, a complaint can be submitted to the editorial office.

2. Responsibility for Reviewers

1)    Double-blind peer review processes are conducted for reviewing manuscripts.

5)  Prior to publication of the paper that has passed the review, editors should sign a copyright transfer agreement with the author, in line with the “Copyright Law of the People’s Republic of China” so as to safeguard the rights of the author and the publisher.
