IJFA - Publication Ethics


 

Academic Journals requires all authors to adhere to the ethical standards as prescribed by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers (STM), and World Association of Medical Editors (WAME).
 
Inclusions of a person who do not meet authorship requirement as specified by the editorial policy or the exclusion of a person who meets the requirement is a violation of this publication ethics.
 
‘The practice of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own’  Oxford Dictionaries
 
Submitted manuscripts should be the original works of the author(s). Academic Journals will follow COPE guideline in suspected cases of plagiarism.
 
"Duplicate publication is publication of a paper that overlaps substantially with one already published, without clear, visible reference to the previous publication"
 
It is unethical for authors to submit a manuscript to more than one journal at the same time, either within Academic Journals or any other journal. This includes the submission of manuscripts derived from the same data in such a manner that there are no substantial differences in the manuscripts. Duplicate submission also includes the submission of the same/similar manuscript in different languages to different journals.
 
Fabrication, manipulation or falsification of data is a violation of this publication ethics. Academic Journals will follow the COPE guidelines in suspected cases of fabrication and falsification of data.
 
Authors should use only citations that are relevant to their manuscripts.  Addition of references which are not relevant to the work is strongly discouraged.
 
Irrelevant self citation to increase one’s citation is unethical.
 
Unnecessary citation of articles for the sole purpose of “increasing” the articles’ citation is unethical.
 
Unnecessary citation of articles from a particular journal to “increase” the journals citation is unethical.
 
 
 
 
 
Academic Journals will review and update this policy periodically.
