Dear Editor,

We would like to share ideas on the publication “Recent Issues in Medical Journal Publishing and Editing Policies: Adoption of Artificial Intelligence, Preprints, Open Peer Review, Model Text Recycling Policies, Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing 4th Version, and Country Names in Titles” [1]. The author emphasizes that each editor must decide whether or not to implement these six policies for their journals [1]. Editors-publishers of society journals are encouraged to become familiar with these policies so that they can implement them in their publications as needed [1]. We all agree that the six proposed criteria are extremely useful in promoting quality improvement in journal. The goal of journal should be to follow best practices in journal publishing. However, the concept needs to be expanded to include the authors who submit articles and the readers of the “Neurointervention”. Despite several attempts by journals to eliminate the problem of misconduct, success in achieving a “misconduct free” cannot be expected without the cooperation of other parties, including authors, reviewers, readers of the journal and the academic institute/society. In our experience as an international journal, Case Study and Case Report (ISSN 2228-8988), editors in the management of academic publications, authors who engage in misconduct and violate the best ethical practices in publishing often claim that they “did not know the rules.” [2] As a result, there should be a system in place to regularly remind or communicate the important ethical practice guidelines. This could be included in the journal’s submission process as a warning sign to those submitting the article.
