Ethical Guidelines for Authors
Fabrication/Falsification of data - Using another person's ideas, language, graphs, pictures, results and experiments without giving credit to them. Without citing the source, copying even a single sentence from your own or another person's research paper leaded to plagiarism.
Plagiarism - Making up data or results and recording or reporting them is fabrication of data. Falsification of data is manipulating research materials, omitting/deletion/suppression of conflicting data without justification and this would cause mistrust and disgrace to scientific community.
Unacceptable author contribution - Including authors who have not contributed to the research in the manuscript and excluding authors who have contributed to the research is unacceptable author contribution.
Citation Manipulation- Citing irrelevant articles that don't contribute to content of manuscript is a kind of scientific misconduct.
Concurrent submissions - It is submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time. It is a waste of time of editors and peer reviewers, and can also damage the reputation of journals if published in more than place.
Redundant publications - It primarily refers to publishing the same material/experiments more than once. Accountability- All authors whose names appear on the manuscript are equally held accountable for the content of a submitted manuscript or published paper.
