Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice
The IAENG publications are committed to the highest standards of publication ethics and take all possible measures against any publication malpractices. The submitted works should not have been published before and should not be under consideration for publication anywhere else. The submission of the work should have been approved by all co-authors, if any. The submitted works must represent the authors’ contributions and must not be copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works. If the authors have used the work and/or words of others, this has to be appropriately cited or quoted. The authors must disclose all and any actual or potential conflicts of interest with their work or partial benefits associated with it.
In the same manner, the IAENG publications are committed to the objective and fair peer-review of the submitted works and to prevent any actual or potential conflict of interests between the editorial and review personnel and the reviewed material. Any departures from the above-defined rules should be reported directly to the editors, who are unequivocally committed to providing swift resolutions to any of such a type of problems.
