Aging’s Scientific Integrity Process



November 8, 2022

Scientific integrity is a crucial component of scholarly publishing for any credible journal. Peer-reviewed, open-access journal Aging (listed as “Aging (Albany NY)” by Medline/PubMed and “Aging-US” by Web of Science) has recently presented its Scientific Integrity process. Launched in 2009, Aging is an open-access biomedical journal dedicated to publishing high-quality, aging-focused research. Aging publishes papers of general interest and biological significance in all fields of aging research and age-related diseases, including cancer—and now, with a special focus on COVID-19 vulnerability as an age-dependent syndrome. Aging has a scientific integrity process to ensure that publications meet a number of scrupulous criteria for authenticity and integrity. Each published paper is thoroughly analyzed by diligent reviewers and services, including multiple in-house developed image forensics softwares. A growing industry of digital technologies, tools and ideas are constantly being added to Aging’s scientific integrity toolbox. Aging’s Scientific Integrity process is built upon six critical components: 1-Easily Accessible Ethics Statements 2-Devotion to Industry Standards for Scientific Publishing 3-Rigorous and Insightful Peer Review 4-Detection and Zero-Tolerance of Plagiarism 5-Leading-Edge Image Forensics 6-Post-Publication Investigations (if needed) You can read about each of these components in greater detail on Aging’s new Scientific Integrity web page: The new web page also depicts publishing statistics in a detailed graph —showcasing a visual representation of the number of post-publication corrections and retractions by Aging compared to the industry average, between 2010 and 2022. As of September 2022, Aging’s average rate of corrections/retractions since 2009 is a low 2.33%. The industry average correction/retraction rate is 3.80%. Aging’s highly-effective scientific integrity process allows researchers to read, share and cite Aging papers with confidence.
