Publication Ethics

Ethical Obligations of Authors

Journal of Science is dedicated to endorsing the integrity of scientific publication. 

  • Authors should not do simultaneous submission to more than one journal. 
  • The work done in the submitted manuscript has to be original, clear, and never been considered for publication or published.
  • Authors should avoid plagiarism, which involves using someone else's work, ideas, or words without proper attribution. Self-plagiarism, or redundant publication, should also be avoided, as it involves reusing one's own previously published work without appropriate citation.
  • Authors should have permission to utilize software, and questionnaires/(web) surveys in the submitted work.
  • Appropriate citation of the relevant literature. Excessive and inappropriate self-citation is strongly discouraged.
  • Follow the COPE authorship guidelines ensuring that authorship is attributed accurately and fairly in research publications.


Misconduct and Malpractice

  • The journal is pledged to uphold the maximum level of integrity in all published articles.
  • Submissions may be subjected to plagiarism detection software. In situations where plagiarism is detected, COPE guidelines will be applied.
  • Publisher and editor(s) will implement rational actions to detect and block the publication of articles proved to have any kind of research misconduct, including plagiarism, citation manipulation, and data fabrication etc.
  • If editor(s) or the publisher detected or filed to them any allegation of research misconduct in an article already published in the Journal of Science, the publisher will apply the national guidelines to deal with such allegations.
