Ethics Statement and Practices
As a publisher, IJYESSPE is dedicated to preserving the highest standards of publication ethics, and we take all reasonable precautions to prevent publication malpractice. Authors must certify that their work is original, unpublished, and not currently being considered for publication elsewhere before submitting papers to any of our journals or book series. Authors also attest that their journal article and/or book proposal are original works that are free of plagiarism and that they have disclosed any actual or potential conflicts of interest or partial financial benefits related to their work. This policy is aggressively and properly enforced.
DUTIES OF EDITORS
- Final Decision on the Publication of Articles and/or Books
The decision as to which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published for publication is made by the Editor(s) in Chief of journals published by IJYESSPE. The Editor in Chief could be influenced by the editorial board's opinions. When making this choice, the Editor in Chief may consult with other editors or reviewers.
- Review of Journal Articles
The editors in chief of a journal also see to it that each manuscript is subjected to a minimum of two reviewers completing a "blind" peer review of it (we are working towards double blind for some of our Journals). Additionally, we employ an industry tool to check for plagiarism before the paper is ever approved for consideration, and any paper with a similarity score of more than 20% is instantly rejected. If they so want, individual Journals may set lower similarity ratings.
- Review of book proposal and Journal special issue proposals
The initial quality check for book proposals is done by book series editors, but at least one other reviewer must also look through the proposals. To make sure that writers and editors are aware that they have been included on proposals, we also do random checks on the other mentioned editors or authors on such proposals.
- Disclosure and conflicts of interest
Anyone with access to a submitted manuscript is not permitted to use any unpublished materials provided in the manuscript for their own research without the author's prior written approval. We regularly conduct spot checks and update our reviewer database to ensure that all referees are conducting themselves honestly.
- Fair play
Regardless of the authors' race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, citizenship, or political philosophy, manuscripts will only be judged on their intellectual value. This is what our transition to double blind reviewing is intended to do.
The corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher are the only parties to whom the Editor in Chief/editors and our editorial staff may reveal information regarding a manuscript that has been submitted.
ETHICAL DUTIES OF REVIEWERS
Material about authors' manuscript submissions must be kept confidential and is considered proprietary information.
- Standards of Objectivity
Reviews ought to be carried out impartially. No criticism of the author on a personal level is permitted. Reviewers should clearly state their positions and provide evidence to back them up. By 2022, we want to have double-blind reviewing for all journals. Currently, all reviews are blind, and some are double blind.
- Acknowledgement of Sources
Reviewers should point out pertinent published works that the authors have not cited. Any assertion that has already been made elsewhere should be backed by the appropriate citation. Any significant overlap or resemblance between the manuscript under consideration and any other published material of which the reviewer has firsthand knowledge should be brought to the Editors in Chief's attention.
- Conflict of Interest
Reviewers should refrain from evaluating submissions in which they have ties or relationships with any of the authors, businesses, or organisations associated with the articles that would put them in a conflict of interest.
DUTIES OF AUTHORS
- Reporting standards
Authors of reports on original research ought to give a truthful summary of the work done and an unbiased analysis of its relevance. The paper should appropriately depict the underlying data. A paper should have enough information and citations to let someone else duplicate the work. False or deliberately inaccurate statements are inappropriate and represent unethical behaviour.
- Data Access and Retention
The raw data related to an article may be requested from authors for editorial review. If possible, authors should be ready to make these data accessible to the public, and in any case, they should be ready to keep these data for a fair amount of time after publication.
- Originality and Plagiarism
Authors must make sure their writing is wholly unique, and if they do borrow someone else's ideas or words, they must properly cite or quote them.
- Multiple Publications, Redundant or Concurrent Publication
Generally speaking, an author shouldn't submit articles detailing essentially the same study to more than one journal or primary publication. It is unacceptable to simultaneously submit the same paper to multiple journals, which is considered unethical publishing behaviour.
- Acknowledgement of Sources
Always give due credit to other people's contributions. Citations for works that had a significant impact on understanding the nature of the reported work are required.
- Authorship of the Paper
Only individuals who significantly contributed to the conception, design, implementation, or interpretation of the reported study should be given the privilege of authorship. Co-authors should be named for everyone who contributed significantly. Other people who have contributed to the research endeavour in meaningful ways should be recognised or identified as contributors when applicable.
- Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
Any financial or other significant conflict of interest that could be taken to have an impact on the findings or interpretation of a manuscript should be disclosed by all authors in the publication. Disclosure of all funding sources for the project is required.
- Fundamental Errors in Published Works
It is the responsibility of the author to contact us as soon as they become aware of a material error or inaccuracy in their own published work and to work with us to have the article retracted or corrected.
DUTIES OF PUBLISHERS
- As publishers, we strive to treat every author and editor with total transparency and fairness. If you believe you have been treated unfairly, contact the leadership team right once at IJYESSPE@gmail.com.
