Code of Ethics
Agrociencia Uruguay adheres to the COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) guidelines regarding good practices in transparency, editing and publication of academic journals. For example, the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing, which promote transparency in communications throughout the editorial process, and assurance that decisions are based on academic rather than personal aspects.
