The journal assesses all information to identify any form of misconduct. If an allegation occurs, the journal reserves the right to take action, including but not limited to publishing corrections, retracting the article, communicating the issue with the relevant author institution and/or academic body, or taking appropriate legal action.

Authors must disclose all sources of financial support, and they affirm the originality of manuscript contents. To reinforce ethical standards, the journal employs plagiarism detection software to meticulously screen submitted content. If plagiarism is identified, AERR will strictly adhere to the guidelines established by COPE.
