Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

 

Cope Committee on Publication ETHICS

 

 

PUBLICATION ETHICS

The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, and the publisher.

  1. Publication and authorship:

– list of references, financial support;

– no plagiarism, no fraudulent data;

– forbidden to publish same research in more than one journal.

  1. Author’s responsibilities:

– authors obliged to participate in peer review process;

– all authors have significantly contributed to the research;

– statement that all data in article are real and authentic;

– all authors are obliged to provide retractions or corrections of mistakes.

  1. Peer review / responsibility for the reviewers:

– Judgments should be objective;

– reviewers should have no conflict of interest with respect to the research, the authors and/or the research funders;

– reviewers should point out relevant published work which is not yet cited;

– reviewed articles should be treated confidentially.

  1. Editorial responsibilities:

– e.g. editors have complete responsibility and authority to reject/accept an article;

– editors should have no conflict of interest with respect to articles they reject/accept;

– only accept a paper when reasonably certain;

– when errors are found, promote publication of correction or retraction;

– preserve anonymity of reviewers.

  1. Publishing ethics issues

– Monitoring/safeguarding publishing ethics by editorial board;

– Guidelines for retracting articles;

– Maintain the integrity of the academic record;

– Preclude business needs from compromising intellectual and ethical standards;

– Always be willing to publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies when needed.

Duties of the Publisher

We are committed to ensuring that commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions. In addition, International Journal of Management, Modern Sciences and Technologies will assist in communications with other journals and/or publishers where this is useful to editors. Finally, we are working closely with other publishers and industry associations to set standards for best practices on ethical matters, errors and retractions–and are prepared to provide specialized legal review and counsel if necessary.

Plagiarism Detection

The peer review process is at the heart of the success of scientific publishing. As part of our commitment to the protection and enhancement of the peer review process, our journals have an obligation to assist the scientific community in all aspects of publishing ethics, especially in cases of (suspected) duplicate submission or plagiarism.
