RSS Foundation Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

The Robotics: Science and Systems Foundation is fully committed to upholding the highest scientific and ethical publication standards. In particular, we follow the guidelines and the code of conduct of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). We are also dedicated to identifying and eliminating all forms of plagiarism and parallel double-submissions. We are implementing a plagiarism check using various automated tools and are collaborating with the Editors and Program Chairs of related publications and conferences to identify parallel double-submissions. The RSS foundation is improving the review process annually, in response to feedback from authors and reviewers.
