When submitting to any of the ESTRO family of journals, authors should be fully aware of how to publish ethically.  This presentation will outline the main considerations that authors should be cognisant of in relation to ethics.  These include authorship and the ethical issues with gift, guest or ghost authorship, the ethical concerns regarding plagiarism, including using words and phrases right through to more serious plagiarism of the data and concepts of others.  The concerns surrounding simultaneous submission, that is submitting duplicate works to more than one journal and so-called ‘salami slicing’, which is the dissection of data for one meaningful paper into several lesser papers will be highlighted. Research fraud includes the manipulation of data and is a serious offence.  This, together with declaration of competing interests in research publications will be discussed.  Finally, guidance on how to ensure that your work adheres to these ethical standards of ESTRO journals will be provided.
