Publishing Ethics


Manuscripts submitted to RESD must be within the area of interest of the journal, contribute to the knowledge of renewable energy and/or sustainable development at large; be original in authorship and publication; be based on adequate factual record; and be significant in data or treatment. Plagiarism is considered to be a serious academic offense in the views of RESD publishing policy, thus the journal reserves the right to reject any paper that appear to include plagiarism of any type or level.

The sole language of publication is English and the manuscript must be understandable and correct in style, spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

The submission of a manuscript implies the authors’ consent to the publishing model and standards of RESD, which charges full responsibility of the published materials to the authors. All authors bear equal responsibility for all originality claims in the published works, however, such responsibility is represented by the corresponding author.
