PUBLICATION ETHICS

Publication ethics
Ethical standards for publication exist to ensure high-quality scientific publications, public confidence in scientific findings, and that people receive credit for their work and ideas.

Assessment articles
All manuscripts must go through the stages of review and are expected to meet predetermined standards. If approved by the editor, submissions will be considered by the reviewers, whose identities will be kept confidential to the authors.

Plagiarism
Authors may not use other people's words, images or ideas without attribution. All sources must be cited at the time of use, and reuse of words should be limited and attributed or quoted in the text.

Edubase Journal uses the Plagiarism Checker to detect submissions that overlap with the manuscripts published and submitted.

Manuscripts found to have been plagiarized by more than 30% of the manuscripts by other authors, whether published or unpublished, will be rejected and the author may be subject to sanctions. Any published articles may need to be corrected or retracted.

Duplicate submissions and redundant publications
The Edubase Journal only considers original content, namely articles that have never been published before, including in languages ‚Äč‚Äčother than English. Articles based on content previously published only on preprint servers, institutional storage, or in a thesis will be considered.

Manuscripts submitted to the Edubase Journal may not be submitted elsewhere while under consideration and must be withdrawn before being submitted to another place. Authors whose articles are found to have been submitted simultaneously elsewhere may be subject to sanctions.

Quote manipulation
Authors whose manuscripts are found to include citations whose primary purpose is to increase the number of citations to a particular author's work, or to articles published in a particular journal, may be subject to penalties.

Editors and reviewers should not ask authors to include references solely to enhance citations to their own or peer-to-peer work, to journals, or to other journals related to them.

Fabrication and forgery
Authors of submissions or published articles that are found to have faked or falsified results, including image manipulation, may be subject to penalties, and published articles may be withdrawn.
