Publication Ethics of IDOSI


• Manuscripts are evaluated by an editor for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

Editorial staff 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.

Submitted manuscripts should be the original works of the author(s). Using thoughts or work of other authors without authorization and the representation of that author's work as one's own is not accepted and considered as a serious non ethical academic issue.

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.

In all conditions, authors are advised to check for plagiarism using a known standard program before sending final corrected articles to avoid rejection when checked later on by IDOSI for detection of potential plagiarism.

Authors must ensure that they have typed entirely original participations and if an author has used the work and/or words of others, it is necessary to indicate the source of the information within his paper using an internal citation.

Authors must not to submit a manuscript to more than one journal at the same time.

Fabrication, manipulation or falsification of data is strongly unaccepted and insert authors in the black list.

Authors must use only relevant citations to their manuscripts. Irrelevant references to the work either own or of others are totally unaccepted.

When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.

IDOSI Journals require all authors to follow the International ethical standards as prescribed by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers (STM), and World Association of Medical Editors (WAME).
