Publication Ethics

All manuscripts are subject to peer review and are expected to meet the stipulated standards of academic excellence. Once approved by the editor, the manuscripts will be sent to peer-reviewers, and the identity of the peer viewers remains confidential. If necessary our research integrity team will resort to the reviewers outside our panel.

Every manuscript submitted to IJASE should adhere to the research ethics very strictly. Fabrication, Plagiarism, Manipulation and inclusion of inappropriate authors are deemed to be unethical research practices.  Supply of false information due to non-experimental data results in “Fabrication”. "Manipulation” is the act of either omission or commission of the data results purposely. "Plagiarism” represents presenting other's works as one's own. Like copying words, sentence structure or ideas from someone else, without giving credit to the original work. Moreover, copying figures, tables and illustrations without getting proper permission from the journal is unethical. Modification of the original content by making small changes is also considered plagiarism, if no credit is given to the original source.Inclusion of a researchers name as an author who is in no way connected to the contents of the paper is called “inappropriate authors”.

The Journal follows the Code of Conduct (http:// of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) (, and follows the COPE Flowcharts ( flowcharts) for resolving cases of suspected misconduct. The IJASE will check "Plagiarism" by using Plagiarism Checker and help to undertake further necessary action via the Committee on Publishing Ethics (COPE). If you take notice of any unethical irregularities to IJASE content, please contact Editorial Office ( It is highly recommended that the authors pursue individual "Plagiarism" check, before manuscript submission, by using a specific program or a free text similarity service. Any scientific misconducts and issues relevant to research ethics will be preliminarily investigated in IJASE Editorial Office and reported to the "Research Ethics Committee" for IJASE. For the policies on the research and publication ethics not stated in this instructions, Guidelines (http:// or International standards for editors and authors (http://publicationethics. org/resources/international-standards-for-editors-and authors) can be applied.
