    Digital preservation

    Prague Development Center as a research publisher explores and market digital preservation approaches and strategies to enhance the trust of academia and social community to e-content of the publisher’s journals. Further extending participation in indexing and archiving agencies remains today central way in providing digital preservation of research journals’ content. In long-term, a strategy is planned to affiliate with Portico service as the important innovative initiative. Providing access to established electronic libraries is considered as the most attractive way to ensure the issue of preservation. The publisher believes that there are other growing opportunities on the market opening alternative ways to provide digital preservation.  

  • Aims and scope

    ATI is peer-reviewed international research journal. ATI covers continuum of subjects related to applied sciences. Papers for consideration could source from domains of physics, chemistry, biology, technology and engineering, electronics, science and education, and other non-economic and natural sciences domains.

    Editorial interest to research articles covers broad spectrum of areas and industries where various types and classes of technologies emerge and develop. It is expected that research articles should contribute original thoughts and reasoning on understanding of emerging and established technologies

    These are some examples of technology fields where the researchers develop their analysis:
    - Information and communication technologies
    - Medical and healthcare technologies
    - Engineering and design technologies
    - Education technologies
    - Applied technologies in various industries of economy and production

    Papers accepted undergo quality control by Editorial board and peer reviewers. All research articles submitted to ATI undergo peer review process, based on initial editor screening and anonymous expertise of reviewers. Articles previously published, those under consideration by another journal, and those with a pre-existing copyright may not be submitted. Author must ensure that about half of the paper contents or core idea has not been published anywhere else. In other words authors should prove the considerable adjustment made and value added in their submissions.

    Given publications should have research character and must be based on principles of scientific and a professional etiquette. The final decision on inclusion of paper will be made by Editorial Board. Editorial Board reserves its right to make technical and scientific editing. In case of not accepting the Board does not provide reviews and comments but resolution on publication.

  • Profile

    ATI belongs to those research periodicals that stick to open access model. The journal follows funding model that does not charge readers or their institutions for electronic access.  In other words, we provide to readers the free online access to read and download scientific articles. This model provides greater reach of interested readers to the published articles.

    In the beginning all volumes appear first as a list with names of articles and authors. At this stage the articles can have relevant abstracts and keywords, but not a pdf documents in a final version. In this phase, papers were only selected selected and are pending for review and other editorial procedures. Articles in pdf are available for download only after final updating - when they already passed the whole editorial process and are agreed with the authors. When this process end, the link becomes active and pdf available for download.

    Important note for authors: Until the volume 9 (issue 4), the journals was published equally in electronic and hard print formats. Since that volume the main publication format is electronic/online. Publisher does not make profits via subscription or sales of print copies. Publisher offers the full content for free access to the public and without restrictions. 

  • Indexing

    The journal is indexed/registered/covered by the following services:

    Academic Journals Database, BASE,  EBSCO Discovery Service, WordCat, E-International Scientific Research Journal Consortium (E-ISRJC), e-LIBRARY.RU, DOAJ (2010-2016), Gale, Google scholar, libsearch, Open J-Gate,  ResearchGate,  Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory, VSL Open, JournalSeek, Scirus, Research Bible, Knowledge Network, Academic Publishing Platforms, CiteFactor, ERIH PLUS, Elektronische Zeitschriftenbibliothek EZB (Regensburg University Library), The German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) ‒ Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology and University Library, Scilit, Open Access Library (OALib)

  • Publication ethics

    IMPORTANT: This section describes principles and rules which can be somehow similar and/or common to other few journals of the publisher (Prague Development Center). Therefore, the text may partially or completely coincide with the requirements in other publisher's journals.

    General standards of PRADEC Publishing

    The Applied Technologies and Innovations (ATI) is established by Prague Development Center (publisher) as academic communication platform founded on important ethical standards in science publishing. Publisher and editorial board follow principles to avoid bad practices related to ghostwriting, plagiarism, and predatory publishing practices. The publisher and editors commit to practices which create and support the trust on every phase of editorial and communication process embracing authors, editors, and peer-reviewers.

    To increase transparency we call authors to write correct affiliations and addresses and show the source of funding of their research when it is required by funding institutions. To agree with the authorship and avoid the conflicts we ask for the declaration of contribution from the corresponding author. To avoid extensive self-citation practice we ask authors to use correct and relevant referencing to own research works published earlier.  

    Ethical conduct in both writing and editing is necessary in order to provide the readers with accurate, useful and reliable scientific material, as well as to appropriately honor the credits of particular researchers and authors. Therefore, compliance with the following standards of publication ethics is required of all contributors of the ATI, including authors, reviewers, and editors. Violation of any of these standards by an author is a basis for rejection of his or her paper submitted for publication.

    Plagiarism

    In publishing only original research, the editors are committed to deterring plagiarism, including self-plagiarism. Editors can use special software to screen submitted manuscripts for similarity to published material. Note that your manuscript may be screened during the whole editorial cycle, including submission process and until the final publication in online or print form. Authors should not engage in plagiarism - verbatim or near-verbatim copying, or very close paraphrasing, of text or results from another,’s work. Authors should not engage in self-plagiarism (also known as duplicate publication) - unacceptably close replication of the author’s own previously published text or results without acknowledgment of the source.

    Conflict of interests disclosure

    Conflict of interest concerning a particular manuscript exists when one of the participants of reviewing or publication process - an author, reviewer, or editor - has obligations that can influence his or her action. Conflicts can occur for financial (e.g., employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, etc.) or other reasons (e.g., personal relationship, academic competition, and intellectual passion). All participants in the peer-review and publication process must disclose all conflicts of interests. Editorial staff may use information disclosed in conflict-of-interest and financial-interest statements as a basis for editorial decisions. The corresponding author must advise the editor at the time of submission either that there is no conflict of interest to declare, or should disclose potential conflicts of interest that will be acknowledged in the published article.

    It is improper for an author to submit manuscripts describing essentially the same research to more than one journal of primary publication unless it is a resubmission of a manuscript rejected for or withdrawn from publication. 

    Authorship

    All persons designed as “authors” should meet the criteria of the concept. The corresponding author must fill in and sign the Declaration of Contribution (in case there are two authors or more), which should be submitted together with the manuscript. Each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take responsibility for its content. The group of authors/contributors should jointly make the decision about the order in which their names are given. Authorship credit should be based on the following principles as 1) substantial contribution to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; 2) drafting the article or reviewing and introducing fundamental changes in it; 3) final approval of the version to be published. Editors of the journal have the right to request information about the contributions of each person in writing the article. 

    An author should cite those publications that have been important in the development of the submitted study and that will guide the reader to the earlier researchers that are essential for understanding the present analysis. 

    An author is obligated to perform a literature search to find, and then cite, the original publications that describe closely related work. An author should provide the accurate citation the verified sources of scientific data and literature. 

    Coauthor notification

    During manuscript submission, the submitting author must provide contact information (full name, email address, institutional affiliation and mailing address) for all of the coauthors. The author who submits the manuscript for publication accepts the responsibility of notifying all coauthors that the manuscript is being submitted. The corresponding author must fill in and sign the declaration of contribution (in case there are two authors or more) which should be submitted together with the manuscript. The co-authors of a paper should be all those persons who have made significant scientific contributions to the work reported and who share responsibility and accountability for the results. Authors should appropriately recognize the contributions of technical staff and data professionals.

    Acknowledgments and funding

    All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in the section “Acknowledgements”. If the original research study reported in the manuscript or the preparation of the manuscript was supported by one or more grants, the title and number of the grant(s) and the name of the institution(s) that provided the grants or financial support to conduct, analyze or write-up the study should be specified in the manuscript.

    Coherence of study

    Fragmentation of research reports should be avoided. A scientist should organize publication so that it provides a well-rounded description of an examined issue. Fragmentation consumes journal space excessively and unduly complicates literature searches. 

    Reviewing

    The journal is peer-reviewed publication. Submitted papers and short communications are evaluated by editorial board members or specialized in the article field referees. Article review covers submitted material currency, scientific novelty degree, define it’s accordance to general journal profile, fixes facts of plagiarism. After the refereeing process is complete, the paper may be rejected, or returned to the authors for revisions, or accepted for publication.

    Editing

    The authors are responsible for the contents of their paper or short communication and it’s publication fact. The editorial staff reserves the right to shorten and review the articles submitted. Editors may request an author, when it is necessary, to develop content or technical details of articles. Scientific editing might change the format and correct the writing to make it conventional with the editorial policy of the journal.  Pictures and graphs are special subjects for editorial consideration. We seek to keep their quantity optimal and only necessary in content. Images should be free from misleading manipulation. When images are included in an account of research performed or in the data collection as part of the research, an accurate description of how the images were generated and produced should be provided.

  • Retraction policy

    IMPORTANT: This section describes principles and rules which can be somehow similar and/or common to other few journals of the publisher (Prague Development Center). Therefore, the text may partially or completely coincide with the requirements in other publisher's journals.

    As a publisher, we strive to prevent the occurrence of occasional and limited cases of retraction and withdrawal of the published articles. As the costs of securing retraction and withdrawal are high for the publisher. Effective screening, peer-reviewing, verifying authorship, and other preventive procedures usually help to minimize such rare cases in the publishing practice. Below are the important rules for retraction and withdrawal policies of the PRADEC Publishing. These approaches and rules may be revised, supplemented, amended, etc.

    Article retraction

    The publisher will follow the selected standards which have been developed by a number of library and scholarly bodies. Reasons for retraction can include infringements of ethical codes, multiple submission, false claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent, need to correct errors in submission or publication, other reasons as well. The publisher recognizes the retraction as an occasional feature in the academic publishing.

    The following actions will be made under retraction policy:

    - A retraction note titled “Retraction: [article title]” will be published in the separate article at the end of the related online issue
    - In the HTML version will the record [near the title] which can be e.g. as 'RETRACTED'
    - The PDF version of the retracted article can be preserved with some special note at the beginning of the article
    - The DOI and HTML links will be preserved.

    Article removal and/or withdrawal

    Article after the publication is not subject to removal, except for the sole discretion of the publisher. When editors screen, review and publish the article online or/end in print the article cannot be withdrawn until the decision of editors and publisher. The published articles go immediately to indexing archives and DOI depositories.
    Full rights for the removal of the publication of the article remain to the publisher. Retraction or removal of published article can arise in very rear and exceptional circumstances. Usually, it takes a long time to make a deeper analysis, examination of reasons and negotiations.

Please be patient if the DOI link does not find the requested/expected content in DOI register. Empty or wrong DOI links could happen during the DOI depositing and management process. You can contact us if at least one month passed after the online publication of an article.  

    Online HTML and/or text content of the article has errors

    Only author(s) may inform us about errors in the article. We ask our authors to explain clearly what a deviance and/or nonconformity has place comparing to the originally submitted article. Please be patient, editors will respond you in the quickest possible time.
