Publication Ethics

Author(s)’ Publication Ethics


The following Publication Ethics Principles are strictly adhered to maintain the quality and integrity of INJITECH. INJITECH practices a double-blind peer-review process and maximizes efforts to prevent conflicts of interest between authors, editors, and reviewers. This journal uses plagiarism detection software to filter submitted manuscripts and reserves the right to reject any manuscript with a high similarity score. INJITECH ensures that the confidentiality of all information related to the submitted manuscript is maintained. Editors fairly evaluate the content of the submitted manuscripts regardless of their views on the author's race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, nationality, or political philosophy. Editors are responsible for journal content and must manage peer reviews fairly and wisely, based on applicable policies and procedures to maintain their quality and integrity. Editors must ensure that each manuscript is initially evaluated by the editor for authenticity.


Authors who are interested in submitting their manuscripts are required to submit their original work and avoid data falsification and forgery. Authors must ensure that any plagiarism, fabrication, or forgery that is detected will lead to outright rejection. Manuscripts submitted must not be in conjunction with other journals and the use of all works from other sources must be acknowledged with appropriate citations and references. This is to prevent double or excessive work. Any fundamental and significant errors found in the published work must be immediately communicated to the journal editor to retract or correct the manuscript. Reviewers must keep all information in the manuscript confidential and not disclose information other than that of the respective authors, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisors, and publishers, as appropriate. Manuscripts should be reviewed objectively without including any personal biases they might have when reviewing a manuscript. The author's criticism is inappropriate. Referees must express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
