Publication Ethics

Publication Ethics of IJReSES


1. General Principles

  • Integrity: IJReSES is committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics and takes all possible measures against any publication malpractices.
  • Fairness: Every manuscript received for review is treated as a confidential document and is reviewed fairly, without any bias.

2. Duties of Editors

  • Decision on Publication: Editors are responsible for deciding which manuscripts submitted to the journal should be published, based on the validity, significance, and originality of the work.
  • Confidentiality: Editors and editorial staff must ensure that information regarding submitted manuscripts is kept confidential.
  • Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest: Unpublished materials in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editor's own research without the express written consent of the author.

3. Duties of Reviewers

  • Contribution to Editorial Decisions: Peer review assists editors in making editorial decisions and, through editorial communications with authors, may also assist authors in improving their papers.
  • Promptness: Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse themselves from the review process.
  • Confidentiality: Manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents.
  • Standards of Objectivity: Reviews should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments.
  • Acknowledgment of Sources: Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors.

4. Duties of Authors

  • Reporting Standards: Authors should present an accurate account of the work performed and an objective discussion of its significance.
  • Originality and Plagiarism: Authors must ensure that they have written entirely original works.
  • Multiple, Redundant, or Concurrent Publication: An author should not publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal.
  • Acknowledgment of Sources: Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given.
  • Authorship of the Paper: Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study.

5. Handling of Unethical Publishing Behavior

  • In cases of alleged or proven scientific misconduct, fraudulent publication, or plagiarism, the publisher, in close collaboration with the editors, will take all appropriate measures to clarify the situation and to amend the article in question.
