Ethical standards for publication exist to ensure high-quality scientific publications, public trust in scientific findings, and that people receive credit for their ideas. We are a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and abides by its Code of Conduct and aims to adhere to its Best Practice Guidelines.

 Plagiarism

_________________________________________________________________________________________________

Plagiarism is a serious issue around the world in the arena of typescript 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”. It 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 we request all our authors to adopt the holistic & pragmatic approach to design the typescript of interest. Hence, IJAS will not be responsible for further action on Plagiarism issue. The author will be solely responsible for plagiarism issue. Typescripts that are found to have been plagiarized from a typescript by other authors, whether published or unpublished, will incur plagiarism sanctions.


Duplicate Submission

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Typescrip that are found to have been published elsewhere, or to be under review elsewhere, will incur duplicate submission/publication sanctions. If authors have used their own previously published work, or work that is currently under review, as the basis for a submitted typescript, they are required to cite the previous work and indicate how their submitted typescript offers novel contributions beyond those of the previous work.


Citation Manipulation

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Submitted typescripts that are found to include citations whose primary purpose is to increase the number of citations to a given author’s work, or to articles published in a particular journal, will incur citation manipulation sanctions.


Data Fabrication and Falsification

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Submitted typescripts that are found to have either fabricated or falsified experimental results, including the manipulation of images, will incur data fabrication and falsification sanctions.


Sanctions

_________________________________________________________________________________________

In the event that there are documented violations of any of the above-mentioned policies in IJAS , the following sanctions will be applied: Immediate rejection of the infringing typescript.

Prohibition is enforced against all of the authors for any new submissions to IJAS, either individually or in combination with other authors of the infringing typescript, as well as in combination with any other authors. This prohibition will be imposed for a minimum of 3 years.

In cases where the violations of the above policies are found to be particularly egregious, the publisher reserves the right to impose additional sanctions beyond those described above.
