Principles of Transparency Checklist
 
Below we provide a "Principles of Transparency Checklist" for our journal.
Governing Body
Our journal has an editorial board whose members are recognized leading experts in the area of tobacco control at a regional and international level, with a focus on tobacco control policies and prevention strategies at a grassroots level. The full names and affiliations of the journal's editors are provided from the "Editorial Board" page.

Editorial team/contact information
We provide the full names and affiliations of the journal's editors as well as full address and contact information for the editorial office, the publisher and the scientific society responsible for the journal's content.

Copyright
Authors submitting their work to TID retain the copyright of their work under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0).
Authors affiliated with an industry (i.e. Pharmaceutical industry) submitting their work to TID are also able to retain the copyright of their work for commercial purposes under the Creative Commons Attribution-NoDerivatives 4.0 International license (CC BY-ND 4.0).
Each article abstract and summary, as available on the website, has a dedicated “license” tab with a direct link to the licensing requirements of that article.

Process for identification of and dealing with allegations of research misconduct
Both the publishers and the Editors of the journal take affirmative action to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred, including plagiarism, citation manipulation, and data falsification/fabrication, among others. All authors are requested to complete and upload ICMJE conflict of interest forms. All manuscripts undergo Ithenticate plagiarism detection after each round of peer review. In the event that the journal's publisher or editors are made aware of any allegation of research misconduct relating to a published article in their journal - COPE's guidelines will be followed when dealing with allegations as TID is a member of COPE,.

Ownership of content and management
The journal is operated and managed by European Publishing on behalf of the International Society for the Prevention of Tobacco Induced Diseases, a registered non for profit, non governmental organisation registered in Greece, under European Law. All content is published under a CC BY 4.0 license, which means that the authors retain ownership of the content of their manuscript.

Web site
Our journal's web site has been developed with care so as to ensure high ethical and professional standards. Constant updating is performed to enhance website utility and ease navigation.

The Name of journal
The Journal name, Tobacco Induced Diseases is unique and cannot be confused with any of the other recognized journals in the field. We are aware of other new journals however that use TID’s name with synonyms. These predatory journals should be avoided.

Conflicts of interest
We have clear policies on handling potential conflicts of interest of editors, authors, and reviewers - all are requested to either complete ICMJE forms or declare no conflict of interest.

Access
Tobacco Induced Diseases is freely available to readers with no subscription or pay per view fees.

Revenue sources
Revenue is obtained only through Article Processing Charges, when those are applicable.
All manuscripts from Low Income Countries are automatically granted a waiver, while manuscripts from Low Middle Income Countries are evaluated on a case by case basis. As tobacco use is a global public health issue our vision is that it is imperative to aid regional tobacco control research from developing countries and hence our belief is that Article Processing Charges from High and High Middle Income Countries are to be used to support the publication of research from Low and Low Middle Income countries. Please see the How to submit tab for further information on our Journal's Article Processing Charges.

Advertising
Our journal does not accept advertisements.

Publishing schedule
The publishing schedule for our journal is continuous.

Archiving
To ensure preservation for the future, our electronic publications are archived with Portico and PMC. Portico is a third-party preservation service supported by both libraries and publishers to ensure that scholarly content published in electronic form will remain accessible for the long term. The Portico digital preservation service is part of ITHAKA, a not-for-profit organization helping the academic community use digital technologies to preserve the scholarly record and to advance research and teaching in sustainable ways.

Direct marketing
We do not engage in email solicitation of articles and will never email potential authors to attract manuscript submissions. In cases of very prominent researchers in the area of tobacco control and tobacco product regulation, the journal does send one-to-one personal invitations for commissioned manuscripts or guest editorials. In this event, the manuscript/editorial will be noted as "commissioned" in the footnote of the pdf and in HTML format.
