Publication Ethics And Malpractice Statement

International Journal of Scientific Research and Reviews (IJSRR) is an open access peer reviewed research journal committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics. IJSRR request to the all our author(s) please adopt the holistic & pragmatic approach to design the manuscript of interest.
All authors submitting their works to the IJSRR for publication as original articles attest that the submitted works represent their authors' contributions and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works. The authors acknowledge that they have disclosed all and any actual or potential conflicts of interest with their work or partial benefits associated with it.          
Hence IJSRR will not be responsible for further action on Plagiarism issue. The author will be solely responsible for plagiarism issue. In order to provide our readers with a journal of highest quality we state the following principles of Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement. Article will be removed from the publication if malpractice/Plagiarism is discovered at any time even after the publication.

Duties of Editors

Editor must ensure a fair double-blind peer-review of the submitted articles for publication. They will strive to prevent any potential conflict of interests between the author and editorial and review personnel. Editors will also ensure that all the information related to submitted manuscripts is kept as confidential before publishing. Editor-in-Chief will coordinate the work of the editors.

Duties of Reviewers

Reviewer evaluate manuscripts based on content without regard to ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, citizenship, religious belief or political philosophy of the authors. They must ensure that all the information related to submitted manuscripts is kept as confidential and must report to the Editor-in-Chief if they are aware of copyright infringement and plagiarism on the author’s side. They must evaluate the submitted works objectively as well as present clearly their opinions on the works in a clear way in the review form.

Duties of Authors

1. It is important to avoid:

    1. Data fabrication and falsification:
    2. Data fabrication means the researcher did not actually do the study, but made up data. Data falsification means the researcher did the experiment, but then changed some of the data. Both of these practices make people distrust.
    3. Plagiarism:Taking the ideas and work of others without giving them credit is unfair and dishonest. Plagiarism is a serious issue around the world in the arena of manuscript writing. Plagiarism means “the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of the one's own original work”. This is generally noticed that, authors are simply copying scientific data and information from the other published papers, which is an awful practice in academic fraternity. Therefore I request to the all our author(s) please adopt the holistic & pragmatic approach to design the manuscript of interest. Hence IJSRR will not be responsible for further action on Plagiarism issue. The author will be solely responsible for plagiarism issue.
    4. Multiple submissions:It is unethical to submit the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time. Doing this wastes the time of editors and peer reviewers, and can damage the reputation of journals if published in more than one.
    5. Redundant publications (or 'salami' publications):This means publishing many very similar manuscripts based on the same experiment. It can make readers less likely to pay attention to your manuscripts. Authors should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper.

2. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.

3. Authors are asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data, if practicable, and should in any event be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.

4.The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works. All authors submitting their works to the IJSRR journal for publication as original articles attest that the submitted works represent their authors’ contributions and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works.

5. Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

6. Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.

7. If the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript.

8. If author involve human or animal in the study, he must submit ethical committee permission details to the editor along with manuscript.

9. Any case sensitive documents like image, case study report must be used only after the concern approval from the patient.

10. All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.
