Publication Ethics (COPE)
This statement is based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Best Practice Guidelines for journal editors. Therefore, The IJJA makes sure that all parties involved in the publication process adhere to the ethical and academic behavior standards indicated in COPE. IJJA does not accept any type of plagiarism. ARYAM holds no responsibility for plagiarism. All authors submitting a manuscript to IJJA should confirm – by a written statement – that their manuscript is their own creation and has not been copied in whole or in part from other works. All submitted manuscripts are checked for plagiarism, duplicate or redundant publication by anti-plagiarism software (iThenticate). Furthermore, the reviewers are asked to report any unethical issues or misconduct. If a published article is found to be a duplicate or redundant publication, a note of retraction will be published. Retracted manuscripts should be retained online, and they should be prominently marked as a retraction in all online versions for the benefit of future readers.
Editors evaluate submitted manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit (importance, originality, study’s validity, clarity) and its relevance to the journal’s scope, without regard to the authors’ race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, citizenship, religious belief, political philosophy or institutional affiliation. Decisions to edit and publish are not determined by the policies of governments or any other agencies outside of the journal itself. The Editor-in-Chief has full authority over the entire editorial content of the journal and the timing of publication of that content. also, Editors and editorial staff will not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
Editors and editorial board members will not use unpublished information disclosed in a submitted manuscript for their own research purposes without the authors’ explicit written consent. Privileged information or ideas obtained by editors as a result of handling the manuscript will be kept confidential and not used for their personal advantage. Editors will recuse themselves from considering manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships/connections with any of the authors, companies or institutions connected to the papers; instead, they will ask another member of the editorial board to handle the manuscript.
This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
