For manuscripts accepted by the journal, authors are required to sign a Copyright Transfer Agreement to transfer the copyright of the article to the Editorial Office of Journal of Irrigation and Drainage, and upon publication of the article, the copyright will belong to the Editorial Office.
In addition, authors should make the following commitments in the Copyright Transfer Agreement: The article is an original work with independent intellectual property rights, and has not been previously published at home or abroad. Issues including plagiarism, forgery and multiple submissions, confidentiality and copyright infringement are not involved. In case of multiple submissions, infringement, disclosure and other problems, authors bear all the consequences themselves. The order of the authors and their affiliations are accurate and truthful, and not under any dispute.
After the Copyright Transfer Agreement is signed, the Editorial Office generally does not accept the request for changes on the information of the authors or their affiliations. If a change is indeed necessary, a formal request signed by all authors and stamped by their institutions must be submitted.
