Ethics and plagiarism

Ethical rules for confirming high-quality scientific publications are well in place. They include enhancing public trust in research, and giving credit to researcher’s work and thoughts. The scientific method is supported and personified by peer-reviewed publications. The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is a critical component in the creation of a well-connected and valued information network. It is a direct representation of the authors and the organizations that tolerate the quality of their work.

Authors of succumbed manuscripts or published articles who are found to have invented or falsified the findings, including image manipulation, may face penalties in the form that their work will be retracted, an online warning and their institute will be informed accordingly.

Authors must pay honour to others when they use their vocabulary, facts, or ideas. Both citation must be referenced at the point of use, and wording must be reused in a limited way in a paper. Crossruff Similarity Check is used to identify submissions that are similar to previously published or submitted papers. All papers found to be copied from another published or unpublished sources will be rejected. Any such papers that have been published may be retracted. Papers extracted from the thesis of any submitting authors submitted to online repositories maybe considered as non-plagiarized, provided that all the required permissions are obtained. Manuscript submitted to any scifoci journal cannot be submitted elsewhere while they are being reviewed and must be removed from the submission before they can be submitted elsewhere. If it is discovered that an author’s article has been submitted elsewhere at the same time, this will be considered as fraud. The authors must elaborate that how their current work differs from their previous published data if they have used previously published or under review work. In case of recycling own figures or large chunks of text, the authors are responsible for seeking permission from the copyright holders. Long forms of publications presented at meetings would be considered by journals, if the previous version is clearly referenced, there is considerable new data, and copyright permissions are obtained.
