Publication Ethics


The following principles of Publication Ethics are strictly adhered to maintain the quality and integrity of INJIISCOM.

INJIISCOM practices double-blind peer review process and maximizes effort to prevent any conflict of interests between the authors, editors, and reviewers. This journal used plagiarism detecting software to screen submitted manuscripts and reserves the right to reject any manuscript with high similarity score. INJIISCOM ensures that confidentiality of all information related to the submitted manuscripts is upheld.

Editors fairly evaluate the content of submitted manuscripts without any regard to their view toward race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors. The editor is responsible for the content of the journal and should organise peer review fairly and wisely, based on procedures and policies that apply to maintain its quality and integrity. The editor must ensure that each manuscript is initially evaluated by the editor for originality.

Authors who are interested to submit their manuscript required to only submit their original works and avoid any data fabrication as well as falsification. The authors should ensure that any plagiarism, fabrication, or falsification detected would lead to outright rejection. The submitted manuscript should not concurrently submitted to other journals and the use of all works from other sources should be acknowledged by appropriate citation and referencing. It is to prevent multiple or redundant works. Any fundamental and significant error discovered in the published work must be immediately communicated to the journal editor to retract or correct the manuscript. All possible conflicts of interests must be disclosed during the submission of the first draft. Agreement shall be given to transfer copyright of publication before submitting the manuscript.

Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author in improving the paper. Reviewers must keep the confidentiality of all information in the manuscripts and not disclose the information other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate. The manuscript should be reviewed objectively without including their personal bias they may have when reviewing a manuscript. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
